Boyd opened the first abortion center in Dallas in 1973 after the Supreme Court handed down the roe v. Wade decision allowing virtually unlimited abortions.
In an interview with WFAA yesterday after news surfaced that he re-opened his late-term abortion center, Southwestern Women's Surgery Center, in the huge metro area last week after more than a year following the closure of the Aaron's abortion facility, he makes a startling admission.
"Am I killing?" Boyd said. "Yes, I am. I know that."
He told WFAA that he is a former Baptist ordained minister who is now a part of the pro-abortion Unitarian Universalist church who says he prays often about the abortions he does.
"I'll ask that the spirit of this pregnancy be returned to God with love and understanding," he said.
Boyd must operate an ambulatory surgical center in order to qualify under state law to do abortions after 16 weeks of pregnancy and he says women from across the south central United States come to him for late-term abortions.
"We see patients from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and across Texas," he said.
"The hardest ones are the young girls," he added, saying that girls as young as 9 and 10 years of age have been to his center for abortions.
Boyd says he was a close friend of George Tiller, the late-term abortion practitioner who was shot and killed at his church earlier this year -- allegedly by militia activist Scott Roeder, who is not affiliated with any pro-life groups.
He says he takes precautions such as keeping his address and phone number private but isn't afraid of doing abortions.
"I don't want the fate that befell Dr. Tiller, but I'm not going to be deterred because what I'm doing is important," he said.
