Interview with an Abortionist

I’ve just been reading an extensive story in the Los Angeles Times, which tells the story of an abortionist in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It provides us with great insight into the contradictions, delusions and moral stupor of those who kill babies for a living.

Dr. William Harrison has been killing babies since the Supreme Court legalized the practice in 1973. It provided a special focus to his practice of obstetrics and gynecology. He told the Times that he’s committed about 20,000 abortions against women, but that is only a crude estimate. (After all, preborn children are not even entitled to the dignity of an accurate number marking their passing).

Over the years, Harrison has weathered many rounds of public battles. That has seemingly made him more belligerent in his sin: The reporter says he calls himself an ‘abortionist’ and proudly admits, “I am destroying life.”

The reporter is allowed to watch an abortion on an 18-year old woman, portraying him as a careful professional.

There is also an interesting insight into the thinking of the staff around the abortuary: “If [these women] truly feel they’re killing a baby, we’re not going to do an abortion for them,” says the nurse. They’ll be sent home to think about it a bit more.

Interestingly enough, the 70-year old Harrison says that, “It’s not a baby to me until the mother tells me it’s a baby.”

After a career in the science of medicine, the best this man can offer is a whimsical view of human life – while admitting that he destroys life, I guess it is not necessarily ‘human life’. That is a matter for his patients to decide, taking reality to a whole new level of relativism.

Your Help Needed

With the Congress reconvening for a “clean-up” session, it is important for pro-Lifers to bring some pressure to bear on our U.S. Senators.

After many years of battling, the U.S. Senate has finally legislation which protects families and upholds the principles of “states rights”. The “Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act” passed the U.S. House overwhelmingly in 2005; however –the two versions of this bill need to be reconciled in a conference committee.

This proposed legislation would help close the back door on those preying upon our daughters. Many predators evade Parental Consent laws by simply driving girls to next door states without such protection. The federal bill would make this criminal – unless the person bringing the girl is a parent or legal guardian.Democrat senators like Harry Reid and Richard Durbin have objected to creating a conference committee – in hopes of leaving the legislation and America’s teenage daughters – in the ditch for another several years.

lease take a moment to call Senator Crapo (208)-334-1776 or Senator Craig (208)-342-7985 to urge that they apply pressure to Senate Leadership to make sure this crucial bill gets final approval before the Congress adjourns. You might also call Republican Majority Leader Bill Frist and urge him to get the job done: (202)-224-3344.

Ghastly Post-Abortion Ruling From Hawaii

This story should send a quiver through your soul.

The Supreme Court of Hawaii has just thrown out the manslaughter conviction of a 32-year old mother who had been found guilty by a criminal of killing her newborn son by smoking crystal methamphetamine shortly before his birth – and again on the morning he was born.

The baby boy, named Treyson, perished within 2 days of his birth, his blood poisoned by high levels of methamphetamine and amphetamine.

Their unanimous ruling is that no crime was committed because there was no person involved. That is, nothing really happened. Since the baby was not a person under the law at the time his mother was smoking the drugs, she could not be prosecuted for harming the baby in her womb.

Obviously, this ruling stems directly from the specious and dishonest reasoning found in the U.S. Supreme Court’s rulings around abortion. And it implies that post-birth abortion will be sanctioned by courts in order to preserve the Roe regime.

To really appreciate the gravity of this ruling, we need to appreciate that the federal Unborn Victims of Violence Act would have protected this boy from harm or destruction by any person other than his mother. Thus, only in the case of a crime committed by the mother is the thing in the womb not a human being; in all other situations, he or she is a baby entitled to protection under the law.

This ghastly contradiction is the result of a legal system being lifted up on its own arrogance.
