The latest in a continuing series. Unsurprisingly, St. Augustine sums it up nicely.
I came to Carthage, where I found myself in the midst of a hissing cauldron of lusts. I had not yet fallen in love, but I was in love with the idea of it, and this feeling that something was missing made me despise myself for not being more anxious to satisfy the need. I began to look around for some object for my love, since I badly wanted to love something.
—St. Augustine, Confessions
The LA Times proudly serves up the fanatical, gore-soaked ravings of an arch-child murderer who goes by the name of Harrison.
"Doctor" Harrison is an enthusiast of Big Babykilling, the primary example of SEX IS DEATH we have, kiddies.
Couldn't keep it in your pants? Knocked her up? Just find a guy who has managed to drown out the sound of his own conscience by endlessly repeating leftist mantras like "Choice!", "Privacy!", and "It's between a woman and her hit man", and pay him a couple hundred bucks to kill your son or daughter. Simple, no? Heck, if you're poor and black, your kids are considered trophy kills. They'll do 'em for free.
And if you think little Davy Ludwig 's stifled conscience did some damage, just imagine what your's would do if you tried to convince it that chopping up your own kiddies was okey-dokey.
And then there's the horror generated by the more than twenty thousand murders Citizen Harrison has proudly committed. To what sort of perversions must he resort to keep his demons at bay?
Offering Abortion, Rebirth
Yes, an Arkansas doctor says, he destroys life. But he believes the thousands of women who have relied on him have been 'born again'. (Emphasis mine.)
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (Isn't it interesting how the totalitarian left keeps finding heroes in Ur-kansas and the rest of the benighted red state south? Goobers I and II, for instance. - F.G.) — Dr. William F. Harrison has forgotten how many children the woman had. He remembers she was poor and, most vividly, he remembers her response when a physician diagnosed her distended stomach as pregnancy."Oh, God, doctor," the woman said. "I was hoping it was cancer."
This was in 1967. Harrison was a medical student and his wife was expecting their third child. It had never occurred to him that a woman would be anything but happy to learn she was pregnant.
The next year, he trained on a maternity ward. In a 24-hour shift, it was not unusual, he said, for four or five women to come in feverish or hemorrhaging from botched abortions.
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.
Congrats, Mengele. I hope you enjoy your spot in in Hell just as much.
His clinic has not been picketed for years, but Harrison feels very much on the front lines these days.
Debate over President Bush's nominee for the Supreme Court, Samuel A. Alito Jr., has centered on abortion. Activists on both sides warn — or pray — that if Alito is confirmed, the court may one day reverse Roe vs. Wade.
At least a dozen states, and perhaps as many as 30, would probably continue to allow most abortions. But abortion rights activists predict that terminating a pregnancy would become a criminal act across much of the South, the Midwest and the Rocky Mountain region.
In Arkansas, for instance, the state constitution sets out "to protect the life of every unborn child from conception until birth." At least 10 other states — including Illinois, Louisiana, Pennsylvania and Utah — have similar language in their constitutions or legal codes.
Oh, my! How fascist of them! Protecting people you want killed!
Harrison warns every patient he sees that abortion may be illegal one day. He wants to stir them to activism, but most women respond mildly.
"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."
I'll bet you $20 that quote was made up.
Patients asked to be identified only by their first names or, in some cases, by their ages to protect their privacy.
Harrison is beyond such concerns. For several years in the 1980s, his clinic was picketed, vandalized and once firebombed. Protesters marched outside his home and death threats became routine. Harrison responded by making his case.
This proves what, exactly? That the right-wing woman-hating baby-savers are no more? Does that mean we can use RICO to go after the Mob again?
He answered every phone call, replied to every letter in the newspaper and appeared at public forums to defend abortion rights. Eventually, the protesters in this college town left him alone. (Arkansas Right to Life focuses instead on educating women about alternatives to abortion, Executive Director Rose Mimms said.)
In the years since, Harrison has become more outspoken.
He calls himself an "abortionist" and says, "I am destroying life."
1) An abortionist is what he is, not what he calls himself. If he called himself a Womb Wrecker, how would you "report" that? (Bear in mind, kiddies, this is from the LA Times, where the agenda is uber alles. Sorry, but German just feels right here. Maybe German should be named the Official Language of the SEX IS DEATH series.)
2) For those of you who thought I might have been a bit harsh earlier when I wished the Bad Doctor a sweet time in Hell, let me make sure you understand what sort of ghoul this cretin is:
"I am destroying life", sagte den Kindmorder.
But he also feels he's giving life: He calls his patients "born again."
Oh my God, have mercy on us all!
"When you end what the woman considers a disastrous pregnancy, she has literally been given her life back," he says.
Does that mean each baby was literally going to kill his own mother? Big Babykilling is really Big Self-Defense? 20,000+ cases of self-defense is impressive, doc.
