Wade Quotations

When I was president, I announced and I still maintain that I can live with Roe v. Wade. I did everything I possibly could as president under that ruling, which I don't think ought to be changed, to minimize the need for abortions. I think every abortion is a result of a horrible series of errors on the part of people involved.
Jimmy Carter

Not when truth is dirty, but when it is shallow, does the enlightened man dislike to wade into its waters.
