Late-term Abortionist: Man is "Malignant Eco-Tumor"
LifeSiteNews ^ | 8/7/09 | Peter J. Smith

Posted on 08/08/2009 1:42:57 PM PDT by wagglebee

BOULDER, Colorado, August 7, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Dr. Warren Hern, one of the last abortionists willing to perform very late-term abortions in the United States, has written published works describing man as a "malignant eco-tumor" destroying the earth.

Esquire magazine reports in a story entitled "the Last Abortion Doctor," that Hern, the director of the Boulder Abortion Clinic since 1975, argued in a work called Urban Malignancy: Similarity in the Fractal Dimensions of Urban Morphology and Malignant Neoplasms that growing human populations act like a "malignant ecotumor."

LifeSiteNews.com found a 2008 edition of Hern's article published in the International Journal of Anthropology . While the term "eco-tumor" does not appear in this version as quoted by Esquire, it may have come from an earlier version of Hern's paper that was presented at the 16th International Seminar on Urban Form in Brazil on August 29, 2007.

"From the point of view of a physician, the expanding, invasive, colonizing urban form with highly irregular borders resembles a malignant lesion," wrote Hern. "Malignant neoplasms have at least four major characteristics: rapid, uncontrolled growth; invasion and destruction of adjacent normal tissues (ecosystems); metastasis (distant colonization); and de-differentiation."

Hern continued that "death of the host organism in a cancer occurs between the 37th and 40th doubling of the cell population" and then drew a comparison to the expansion of human populations (32.5 times by 1999) and energy consumption (36 times since 1999), adding that energy consumption is projected to increase 57 percent between 2004 to 2030.

Hern argued that expanding urban communities would "alter the biosphere to the point that it can no longer support large, oxygen-consuming organisms" reaching a point at which in "the point of view of human survival, the host organism will have died."

"If this hypothesis is correct, that urban settlements of all kinds, and cities in particular, are malignant lesions or phenomena on the planet Earth, the conclusion of this process may not be far in the future," wrote Hern.

Pressed by Esquire's reporter to explain why he would compare human beings with cancer tumors, Hern replied, "I do think that helping people control their fertility is highly consistent with helping people be responsible citizens of the planet. If somebody misunderstands it or tries to distort it, I don't give a s[***]. I'm sorry, I'm living in this country because I can say what I think."

Esquire's portrait of Hern revealed Hern hates the term "abortionist" due to its negative connotations in the public imagination, but he stands apart from other abortionists by refusing to call his abortion practice a "family planning clinic."

Back in 1998, LSN reported that Hern had submitted another similar paper to the American Anthropological Association comparing human beings to malignant cancers. Hern explained to the AAA that this belief had motivated him for over 20 years, about the same time that he began his abortion practice in Boulder, Colorado.

After the recent murder of Kansas abortionist Dr. George Tiller by a mentally unstable anti-abortion activist, Hern remains the last full-time US abortionist carrying out very late-term third-trimester abortions even as far as 36 weeks. That may not be the case for long: Hern's colleague, Dr. Leroy Carhart, has made rumblings that he will leave Nebraska to take up where Tiller left off, in providing late-term abortions up until the moment of birth. Carhart used to perform very late-term abortions like Tiller and Hern, until Nebraska's late-term abortion restrictions went into effect after receiving approval from the US Supreme Court.

I'm sure Zero will make this monster some sort of czar.

Obama’s Science Czar Said a Born Baby ‘Will Ultimately Develop Into a Human Being’
Tuesday, July 28, 2009
By Terence P. Jeffrey, Editor-in-Chief

(CNSNews.com) - President Obama’s top science adviser said in a book he co-authored in 1973 that a newborn child “will ultimately develop into a human being” if he or she is properly fed and socialized.

“The fetus, given the opportunity to develop properly before birth, and given the essential early socializing experiences and sufficient nourishing food during the crucial early years after birth, will ultimately develop into a human being,” John P. Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy...

“Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions” argued that the human race faced dire consequences unless human population growth was stopped.

“Human values and institutions have set mankind on a collision course with the laws of nature,” wrote the Ehrlichs and Holdren.

These people are insane. Are we to reinterpret the rise of the Dinosaurs or the great changes in speciation as if the ascendant group was some how wrong. This is something that is ridiculous especially coming from the group that elevates the wrong “change” as if it is like speaking the name of a deity.
Nature has never been about static peaceful coexistence the idea that it is or ever was is not supported by history. It is the creation of the minds of men who think like children.

The idea that mankind is an “eco-tumor” is as far from science as one can get. It’s a religious belief. And the religion has a name: radical environmentalism.

Dr. Warren Hern and his sick, anti-human concepts are what happen when you reject the Creator and refuse to acknowledge the sanctity of human life, which is unique. Dr. Hern doesn't seem to realize (or, more likely, deliberately rejects) the reality that earth was created for mankind, not the other way around. We are stewards of the earth, not slaves to it.

This kind of anti-human philosophy from an M.D. is frightening in it's stupidity and callousness toward humanity. Unfortunately, this life-hating physician will probably be Obama's next Surgeon-General. Wait for it.

The first question that comes to mind is *Why is he still here?*

The next one is wondering what standard of living he is accustomed to living at.

Does he live in an environmentally friendly mud hut with no heat, plumbing, electricity, computer, phone?

Does he waste natural resources jetting around the country pushing his agenda?

What about the medical clinic where he performs the abortions? Medical facilities are one of the hugest producers of waste that I’ve ever seen.

Sounds like he meets most of the qualifications. A fellow traveler of “Gay Mengele” Zeke Emmanuel and John Holdren. Just got to make sure he’s a globalist/Marxist/Commie of some kind.

And God will indeed have to help us because unlike with the Nazis in the 1940s there is no "United States" left to defeat fascist socialism.

He’s from the Peter Singer school of thought. Very dangerous individual, and not all that uncommon in the eco-movement or in parts of academia.

reaching a point at which in "the point of view of human survival, the host organism will have died.

When will these enviro-mentals learn that this is a planet, not an organism?

When will these enviro-mentals do their own part, kill themselves for the planets sake, and leave the rest of us alone?

These people are mentally ill. And they are now in charge of the WH, Senate, House, Courts, many states, and the MSM. These are dangerous times as a result. With no limits on these nut cases, it's hard telling what they will do.

So? Even if you don’t mention abortions at all, the man is ideologically anti human life.

This beast does abortions not to help women but because he hates humanity. He's in luv with killing people.

If obozo death-care passes this sicko’s ideas and objectives will take a big step forward.

We must redouble our efforts and end this sick evil or it will most certainly end us.

To not be a hypocrite has he realized that he should “abort” himself and his loved ones. Otherwise it just hypocritical selfishness. He needs to change his beliefs and/or change his behavior.

“We have reached a point in this particular technology where there is no possibility of denial of an act of destruction by the operator,” he allowed in a paper he presented to a meeting of Planned Parenthood physicians in 1978. Hern continues, “It is before one’s eyes. The sensation of dismemberment flows through the forceps like an electric current.”

Even a monster like Josef Mengele had enough sense to know that man was not a “malignant eco-tumor”.

These people here are certifiably insane.
