Dr. Mildred Jefferson - Requiescat In Pace

Dr. Mildred Jefferson, a long-time pro-life activist and a founder and past president of the National Right to Life Committee, passed away yesterday at the age of 84 yrs.

Although her pro-life activism was the most prominent aspect of her life, she had many other accomplishments.  She was the first African American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School.  This wikipedia article cites many other "firsts" for Dr. Jefferson.

She also voiced well-founded criticism of the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party towards minorities and the poor.  Think about it - the so-called "party of the little man" and "party of compassion" espouses and facilitates the murders of the littlest amongst us who stand in most need of compassion.  She saw through that set of smoke and mirrors.  That's why I doubt that you'll see any feminazi group such as NOW pay any sort of tribute to the strides she made.

Dr. Jefferson, rest in peace - and pray for us who carry on the pro-life battle on earth!

  1. This dynamic, intelligent and compassionate woman was surely a great asset to the Right To Life Movement. I was saddened to hear of her passing. She used her heart and mind to champion the rights of innocent unborn human beings. Would that there were more physicians like her.
