FROM L.A. SLIMES: But Warren Hern, a Colorado physician and close friend of Tiller's who said he is now "the only doctor in the world" who performs very late-term abortions, said Tiller's death was predictable.
Dr. Warren Hern's website
From this article:
Did I Violate the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban? (warning: contains graphic description)
The following is an except from an article in Slate by Dr. Warren Hern, M.D.
Earlier this year, I began an abortion on a young woman who was 17 weeks pregnant. Because of the two days of prior treatment, the amniotic membranes were visible and bulging. I ruptured the membranes and released the fluid to reduce the risk of amniotic fluid embolism. Then I inserted my forceps into the uterus and applied them to the head of the fetus, which was still alive, since fetal injection is not done at that stage of pregnancy. I closed the forceps, crushing the skull of the fetus, and withdrew the forceps. The fetus, now dead, slid out more or less intact. With the next pass of the forceps, I grasped the placenta, and it came out in one piece. Within a few seconds, I had completed my routine exploration of the uterus and sharp curettage. The blood loss would just fill a tablespoon. The patient, who was awake, hardly felt the operation. She was relieved, grateful, and safe. She wants to have children in the future.
Did I do a "partial-birth" abortion? Will John Ashcroft prosecute me? Stay tuned.
Claiming your the only one in the world sure paints a target on his back.....
Murdering abortionists is the moral equivalent of murdering Theo van Gogh.
Different religion, same violence.
Lovely story there - the quack’s moral rationalizations are enough to make one’s head spin. Yeah, some “hero”.
Theo van Gogh killed babies?
Big difference,Theo van gogh didnt murder unborn children,Dumbass.
I’m having a hard time generating any sympathy for Dr. Tiller.
You do despicable tings it should come as no surprise that someone else who has taken objection to is decides that your death is the only way to end it.
Murdering someone cause you don’t like his films and murdering someone to stop him from taking innocent life people is not quite the same thing. Good try, though.
>>> Im having a hard time generating any sympathy for Dr. Tiller.
He has all he needs from the pro-abortionists.
What a singular claim to have. What a low-life.
Tiller repeatedly did this. Evil evil man.
I guess he painted them to death.
OReilly has uncovered a list of monies that Dr. Tiller gave to Obamas new Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius in donations, making this a most reprehensible political relationship, destroying human life for money. And Kathleen Sebelius is the best the Obama administration can do for Secretary of HHS?
I hadn't thought of that but it would explain why so much of Hollywood is liberal wouldn't it?
Would you pull the trigger? Or are you just a cheerleader?
I’m anti-abortion. I just don’t know if I would ever be able to take a life in any manner.
