The most misunderstood aspect of the right-to-life movement

From an interview with the new president of National Right to Life, Carol Tobias:
KATHRYN JEAN LOPEZ: What's the most misunderstood aspect of the right-to-life movement?

CAROL TOBIAS: Pro-lifers are often accused of not caring about mothers and their babies after the baby is born. That is blatantly false. Pro-lifers are the most caring, loving, generous people you will ever meet. They open their homes to pregnant women who have nowhere to go, they provide clothing, food, diapers, furniture, and other essentials for newborn babies. They contribute to churches and other organizations that take care of the poor, the hungry, and the homeless. They may or may not advocate that the government spend tax money to do these things, but they are using their own money to do these things.
