Posted on 11/25/2013 10:29:40 AM PST by Morgana
Diane Derzis is the owner of the last remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi.
Through botched abortions, dozens of pro-life laws providing women the protection for their medical health her facility ignores, and lawsuits stopping the state from having her abortion practitioners get admitting privileges at local hospitals, Derzis has kept the Jackson Womens Health Organization going.
Derzis is certainly no stranger to legal problems. Last year she was ordered to shut down her New Woman All Women abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama, after inspectors found 76 pages of violations following the hospitalization of three patients in one day for abortion complications.
As she was in the process of losing her dangerous Birmingham clinic, Derzis filed suit to block the new Mississippi law. She received an injunction that extended the deadline for compliance while she sought hospital privileges for her three out-of-state abortionists. That deadline passed on January 11, 2012, without JWHOs abortionists obtaining hospital privileges.
Eventually a judge let her keep the abortion facility going despite running afoul of the law, while her lawsuit against it continues.
Now, Derzis, in a flattering profile in a local news outlet, gives a reason why she is fighting so hard to keep Mississippis last abortion business going: God told her to keep killing babies in abortion.
If they think theyre going to make me feel badly about what I do not gonna happen, said Derzis, a 59-year-old Virginia native who has lived in Alabama for decades.
Earlier this month, outside Derzis clinic in Mississippis capital city, police officers tried to keep a couple dozen protesters and clinic supporters apart. Derzis stood on the sidewalk as the Rev. Philip Flip Benham, one of her most vocal critics, asked her if shed repent and said he would pray for her.
I just love prayers. Im the glad recipient of prayers, Derzis said, looking past Benham.
Just as protesters say they are following Gods will by praying outside clinics and trying to talk women out of abortions, Derzis says she, too, is led by divine guidance to provide women a safe place to terminate pregnancies.
I feel like God wants me to do this job, said Derzis, who has a raspy smokers voice and a penchant for brightly painted fingernails and chunky jewelry.
She started working as an abortion clinic counselor shortly after the first clinic opened in Alabama in the 1970s.

Derzis talks openly about the abortion she had when she was 20, newly married and in college.
She said didnt want children, and knew immediately she wanted to end the pregnancy. Derzis said her mother told her shed regret it, but she hasnt. She said she was about 12 weeks along when she had the procedure, and the doctor was gruff and disrespectful.
I thank God every day I had that abortion, said Derzis, who later divorced and doesnt have children. It was not a great experience, but you know what? I had a safe abortion. And thats what counts.
Someone definitely needs a lot of prayer.
Diane you did not have a safe abortion you just dodge a bullet. Other women since Roe vs Wade have not been so lucky.
No other word for the abortionists.
Her god is Satan.
If she loves abortion so much she should take one for the cause and abort herself right now..do everyone a huge favor
Noting more than a serial killer. I hope she can swim in her future residence, a lake of fire.
Greedy is another word. Very greedy for money.
Many centuries ago, there was another useful idiot who claimed God had spoken to him. His name was Mohammed. And as it turns out it was Satan that time too.
Why would someone with the openly-stated goal of snuffing out a life in grisly fashion have any interest in a hospital i.e. a place of healing?
And if the answer is 'in case the abortion-seeker has complications' isn't that the job of the abortionist and the clinic? Why do these clinics exists, with or without prayers, if not for the so-called safe abortions the Democrats are always banging on about?
The suspension of logic required to practice and promote these wanton acts is overwhelming; their belief that they should receive society's thanks is evidence of nothing less than mental illness.
Serial fetal killer praises God for the killing...
37 They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons,
38 And shed innocent blood,
The blood of their sons and their daughters,
Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;
And the land was polluted with the blood.
39 Thus they became unclean in their [y]practices,
And played the harlot in their deeds.
40 Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against His people
And He abhorred His [z]inheritance.
41 Then He gave them into the hand of the [aa]nations,
And those who hated them ruled over them.
42 Their enemies also oppressed them,
And they were subdued under their [ab]power.
43 Many times He would deliver them;
They, however, were rebellious in their counsel,
And so sank down in their iniquity.
- Psalm 106:37-43
Hmmmmm. God might be paying attention. But not to HER prayers.
Setting aside the entire morality of abortion, and all arguments surrounding it, for the moment ......
....why would abortion providers, or people getting them, or people supporting them, NOT want to go to a place that meets a basic standard for outpatient surgery? It's mind boggling to me, that feminists - who would scream bloody murder if women received substandard treatment in any OTHER way shape or form - would turn a blind eye to such a thing. Senseless politics, all.
She will have to answer to God for what she has done.
Abortion is a sacrament for these people.
Easy for her to say. Her parents allowed her to be born.

Technically, not thanking big-G God, but a small-g god. Likely Moloch.
I’m sure that the Degussa company thanked God for Hitler and his use of Zyclon B.
