I read about 75% of it and wanted to vomit. I really can't think of anything more disgusting than the wholesale slaughter of all these innocent children. What a testament to our nation's pure and unbridled selfishness.

re: Harrison prepares to inject Versed, a sedative, in her intravenous line. )))

Amnesia drug--makes you forget pain. I keep wondering when it is going to be discussed in re interrogations of prisoners. Have you been tortured if you don't remember it? These drugs leave you completely without traumatic memory.

Harrison warns every patient he sees that abortion may be illegal one day.He wants to stir them to activism...

Of course he wants to "stir them to activism"....being an abortionist today is very easy...and *very* lucerative.. work.

God forbid that anything should happen to disrupt his country club,two-Mercedes,winter home in French Polynesia, thirty year old trophy wife lifestyle!

Harrison glances at an ultrasound screen frozen with an image of the fetus taken moments before. Against the fuzzy black-and-white screen, he sees the curve of a head, the bend of an elbow, the ball of a fist.

"You may feel some cramping while we suction everything out," Harrison tells the patient.

God help us!

One of the most powerful,moving things that ever happened to me was back in the early 70's.I had taken a volunteer job at a major Boston hospital working in the Pathology Dept.

One day,I had to go into the autopsy room to get something (bear with me here!).In this autopsy room were many containers,of various sizes,which contained different human organs (used for research and teaching purposes).

On one of the shelves was was a jar about the size of a large pickle jar.The jar contained several human fetuses which,I assume,were from miscarriages (because this was before Roe v Wade).

The thing that moved me was to see one of them,perfectly formed and absolutely recognizable as a little human being, was sucking his/her thumb! This baby was no bigger than my thumb!

How can anyone with any medical training,certainly having seen even more than than that during their training,kill a child whose only crime is existing???

He's a 70 year old doctor -- If I am correct ---
According to his book reviews at Amazon -- This guy was Hillary's doctor and was a friend of Bill and Hillary since the 70's.

Reviews Written by William F Harrison (Fayetteville, AR United States) -- his other reviews provide an interesting insight into his mind.

Do this 20,000 times and try and think of the meaning of the Hippocratic Oath. Reminds me of the scene in Justice at Nuremberg when one of the Nazi judges turns to another prisoner and asks if it is possible to kill "that many?" He is given a rather detached and clinical answer by someone so jaded as to sicken an ordinary person. 20,000? May God deliver us from such.

"It was a lot easier than I thought it would be," she says. "I thought it would be horrible, but it wasn't. The procedure, that is." She is not yet sure, she says, how she is doing emotionally. She feels guilty, sad and relieved, all in a jumble."There's things wrong with abortion," she says. "But I want to have a good life. And provide a good life for my child." To keep this baby now, she says, when she's single, broke and about to start college, "would be unfair."

I was going to say 'out of the mouths of babes' but that isn't quite correct. In this instance, the babe would have been screaming our loud if it could have filled it's lungs with air as it was being cut into chunks.

In any case, there you have it. Molech worship hasn't changed one iota in thousands of years: If you want all to go well, then sacrifice your sons and daughters.

This is yet another stark reminder of the differences between conservatives and liberals--the group that gives its stamp of approval for this mass slaughter. They would place a higer regard for their government social programs above the destruction of babies, while telling us "Democrats Care". Utterly repulsive!

Not bizarre if you figure yourself at the center of the universe with no right or wrong. I pity the girl for the life of tortured conscience that even moments after the abortion is telling her of her heinous wrong. I despise the maggot that chews gum as he murders an infant - his reward is out of human hands.

>>Harrison draws his own moral line at the end of the second trimester, or 26 weeks since the first day of the woman's last menstrual period. Until that point, he will abort for any reason.<<

Our foster child was born at 24 weeks. 19 months later, she's a normal, healthy girl with no problems.

These people are monsters. Heads and hearts filled with pure evil.

I read about 1/3 of it (Up to the part where he begins operating on the 18- year- old girl), but I couldn't bring myself to read any more after that.
This is sick, that man says, "I destroy life, but I help women become born again." At first, I thought he was talking about the women who find Jesus after having an abortion, but sadly, that wasn't the case. He was saying that the women feel "Liberated, ready to start over." That is baloney. Doesn't he know how high the depression/ suicide rate is for women who've had abortions? He ends the lives of babies, and ruins the lives of their mothers.

"It's not a baby to me until the mother tells me it's a baby," he says

If it is a fetus or unviable tissue matter whatever they call "it" how can she be a mother? That statement really bugs me.

This person is far, far, far away from God. God has a plan for her alright. Prayer without repentance for one of the most horrible of all sins isn't heard.

This people honors me only with lip-service, while their hearts are far from me. The worship they offer me is worthless; the doctrines they teach are only human regulations." (Matt.15:8-9).

From godlessgeeks.com:

Dr. Harrison has been an abortion provider in Arkansas for several decades.

MILITANT RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISM

by William F. Harrison, MD

6/19/02

As a physician who openly provides abortion for my patients, I have dealt with and closely observed militant religious fundamentalists of the Christian variety since 1983. During that time, my office was firebombed by a 14-year-old boy whose actions were instigated by fundamentalist propaganda that he was exposed to in his church. It has been invaded, blockaded and vandalized literally scores of times. Between 1985 and 1989 I received so many death threats that I lost count. At least two of these I and law enforcement authorities took very seriously. Since 1978 there have been hundreds of instances of violence against doctors’ offices, physicians, clinic personnel and Planned Parenthood facilities here in the United States. Several of my colleagues have been shot, stabbed and injured by religious fundamentalist terrorists’ bombs and there has been millions of dollars in property damage caused by terrorist bombs and arson. If there is any group in the United States which has had more experience with religious terrorism than the two thousand or so physicians who provide almost all this nation’s abortions - other than possibly the American Jewish community and civil rights workers targeted by the ostensibly Christian Ku Klux Klan in the fifties and sixties - I don’t know who they might be. Certainly there is no one in the Bush administration who has been as closely focused on this problem in the last 20 years.

Militant religious fundamentalism, whether Islamic, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh or of some splinter sect origin, presents the greatest threat to peace and security in the world today. Fundamentalists seem to share certain widely recognized characteristics and attitudes. They are certain that they, and only they, possess "The Truth." They all cite an external source for that "Truth": religious dogma, the Bible or similar sacred texts, or a charismatic leader. They adhere to a good vs. evil belief system, all black or all white with no shades of gray – an "us versus them" mindset. All share in the ideal of a "traditional family" with the husband at the head of the household maintaining absolute dominance over his wife, or wives, and their offspring. Fundamentalists usually express a justification for violence to oppose what they perceive as evil or to support what they "know" to be the good and true. They reject efforts to accommodate to inevitable social change and moral ambiguity. Most are rabidly anti-communist, anti-abortion and homophobic, although "secular humanism" is rapidly replacing communism in their unholy trinity.

Most are anti-intellectual, anti-science, prejudiced against minorities and even their co-religionists of slightly differing cant. (Fundamentalist Baptists know Catholics are going to hell and fundamentalist Catholics are certain that Protestants are. Both seem more than a little glad of it.) They are authoritarian, self-righteous, and zealously oppose any critical or analytical thinking which might alter their attitudes since reasonable doubt and a healthy skepticism are among their greatest sins. A visceral intolerance of female sexuality and an insistence on the subservient role for women are almost universal articles of faith among fundamentalists. Most view pregnancy as a blessing for the good wife or as God’s punishment of female licentiousness for those girls and women who don’t view a particular pregnancy as a benediction. Rigid heterosexuality and a double standard for male heterosexual conduct are seen as the only valid norms.

But it is only when religious fundamentalism is wedded to a militant and tyrannical agenda used by a ruthlessly ambitious political figure or party that it becomes truly dangerous to dissenting individuals and to the society within which it might flourish. At the present time, most of the world’s religious fundamentalists say they are appalled by and deplore the violence perpetrated by small contingents in every major religion. (Even Buddhism, usually considered the least militant and threatening of all the major religions, has had its crazed violent fundamentalists: the Aum Shinrikyo that carried out sarin gas attacks in the subways of Tokyo.) But the fiery rhetoric of even those who say they deplore the violence, when combined with an ambiguous and covertly or overtly supportive reaction to the violence by government officials and law enforcement personnel, serves only to reinforce the violent behavior of unstable and emotionally immature individuals within the ranks of militant fundamentalism.

This is not an attack on religion. Any religion that can induce an active, selfless, inspirational and redemptive love in an otherwise slothful, self-centered and uncaring humanity is a thing to be encouraged and supported. And their faith does just that for most of the world’s religious people.

But if it is read as a rebuke of militant, exclusivist, hostile and violent or violence promoting religious bigots, of those who have just enough religion to kindle sectarian hatreds, but whose faith is not nearly sufficient to quicken love and respect for others simply because of their humanity, this is exactly how I meant it.

For hundreds of years there has been a struggle between those who promote reason, tolerance, freedom, and the basic human dignity of the individual, and religious fundamentalists who proclaim and follow lives committed to intolerance of the religious beliefs of others and a slavish devotion to a particular religious superstition. Just as advocates of differing economic and political systems vied for control of great blocks of humanity during the 19th and 20th centuries, so, it seems to me, must we – those whose lives are devoted to a search for true cause and effect, to tolerance, freedom and a belief in the dignity and worth of every individual - struggle to overcome the violent and dictatorial devotees of the mindless dogmas of religious fundamentalism and, by education, alter fundamentalists’ unthinking submission to superstition and religious intolerance. Militant fundamentalists too often have demonstrated over hundreds of years a willingness to "kill or convert" those who subscribe to differing belief systems.

I am not at all sure this struggle can be won in my lifetime. I know only that it must be continued.

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.

Disgusting. There should be the equivalent of a Nuremberg trial for butchers like Harrison.

This is possibly the most disturbing article that I've read all year. This part makes me gag:

For the few women who arrive ambivalent or beset by guilt, Harrison's nurse has posted statistics on the exam-room mirror: One out of every four pregnant women in the U.S. chooses abortion. A third of all women in this country will have at least one abortion by the time they're 45.
"You think there's room in hell for all those women?" the nurse will ask.

Don't fool yourself that this is just Democrats and RINO's. There are people all over the spectrum who will (with a tasteful tear or two) sacrifice their children or grandchildren for the sake of avoiding personal difficulty in their lives.

Re-read this part: "I've been praying a lot and that's been a real source of strength for me. I really believe God has a plan for us all. I have a choice, and that's part of my plan."

God has a plan for us all! Now she's got her feel-good-god on the abortion bandwagon, too! Lord, I just read an article in a "respectable" women's magazine by a "famous" Christian preacher who explicitly claimed that since "God says" that we are all good, forgiven, innocent, basically doing our best, etc. nobody should feel down on themselves or feel regrets for what's past.

This load of scented sh!! passes for pastoral wisdom in OUR CHRISTIAN CHURCHES!

And for a REAL insight into what respectable Christians really believe about the "sanctity of life," pick a couple of paragraphs out of the article and substitute the word word "torture" for "abortion"...

The misuse of "God has a plan" must have replaced "I've got to get on with my life" as an excuse for not being penitent about committing evil deeds.

Even this abortionist, William F. Harrison says his mother told him that God had a plan for him.

But my mother always said to me, "the Lord has a special purpose for your life."

This is the worst of the entire article:

His first patient of the day, Sarah, 23, says it never occurred to her to use birth control, though she has been sexually active for six years. When she became pregnant this fall, Sarah, who works in real estate, was in the midst of planning her wedding. "I don't think my dress would have fit with a baby in there," she says.

I guess that it's okay for Harrison's "God" to have a purpose for him, but not okay for Harrison's God to have a purpose for people who are open to the idea that abortion is wrong.

I'm flabbergasted that anti-abortion folks are labeled as trying to force their religious beliefs on others. It's obvious that some factor, other than religion, is entering into the reasoning of some pro-life people.

Dr. Harrison seems to believe he was/is religious and, yet, he is pro-abortion. Some people can be a-religious, and yet oppose abortion. Some religious people can oppose abortion for a-religious reasons.

I'm crying too. God help us, indeed. My son was born (due to incompetent cervix) at 20 weeks, alive and moving. He was the most amazing perfect tiny baby I have ever seen. And my heart breaks knowing that babies his age are butchered every day and that it's legal.

I also know that the abortion mentality has infected the minds of ob/gyns everywhere. My OB blew off every symptom of pre-term labor that I had. If he really believed that my son's life was worth protecting, why would he have done that? Both my son and I are victims of the abortion culture. But I feel utterly powerless to do anything about it, except pray.

My only concern is that we are to far gone to care.

Face it, all of the chastisements in the world wouldn't change some.
