Like Brandon, I don’t know what to think of this. He posted about this and you really need to go read what he quoted especially if you don’t bother reading entire article here. Scratch that – go read BOTH – now.

Reading the excerpt at Brandon’s blog almost brought me to tears, but then I clicked on through to read the full story at the LA Times website. This part literally took my breath for a few moments:

Harrison opened an obstetrics and gynecology practice, but after the Supreme Court established abortion as a constitutional right in 1973, he decided to take on an additional specialty. Now 70, Harrison estimates he’s terminated at least 20,000 pregnancies.

That’s 20,000 babies killed. “Terminated” is not nearly descriptive enough of a word. The thought of that many children being murdered by ONE person sickens me. So many quotes from that article just make my jaw drop:

In regards to finding out that pregnancy was the reason for her “distended stomach”:

“Oh, God, doctor,” the woman said. “I was hoping it was cancer.”

And when the doctor advised a patient that abortion may become illegal in the US someday:

“I can’t imagine the country coming to that,” says Kim, 35, in for her second abortion in two years.

A high school senior says the issue won’t weigh heavily when she evaluates candidates. “There’s other issues I see as more important,” she says, “like whether they’ll raise taxes.”

He calls himself an “abortionist” and says, “I am destroying life.”
But he also feels he’s giving life: He calls his patients “born again.”

I just cannot believe people would be some ignorant, cold-hearted, and inhumane. God have mercy on these peoples souls.

There were so many quotes that I didn’t know which I would pull, either. You didn’t even quote the woman who said something like it’s not plausible that she give the baby up for abortion because she just can’t give up her body for nine months. That made me shake my head.

What’s surprising is that an article like this made it into the LA Times–as liberal as the New York Times. I just don’t see how anyone, for or against abortion, can walk away feeling cheery after that article.

Justin is right, though. You need to read the whole thing.

Yeah, the fact it was in the LA Times actually shocked me as much as the content of the article.
