May the Angels Carry Her Safely Home

Human Life Alliance mourns the loss of Dr. Mildred Jefferson who passed away Friday at the age of 84.

Dr. Jefferson, the first African-American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School and the first female surgical intern at Boston City Hospital, was also a pioneer and leader in the pro-life movement. She was one of the founders of National Right to Life.
Dr. Jefferson said the anti-abortion movement was "second only to the abolitionist movement'' in the way it changed American thinking. In a 2003 interview for American Feminist magazine, Dr. Jefferson said "I am at once a physician, a citizen, and a woman, and I am not willing to stand aside and allow this concept of expendable human lives to turn this great land of ours into just another exclusive reservation where only the perfect, the privileged, and the planned have the right to live.''
We remember Dr. Jefferson as an eloquent, articulate lady of great wisdom, intellect and dignity. Her leadership and inspiration will be greatly missed. Our condolences to family and friends.  is a  Yoru  video  interview with Dr. Jefferson
