Newsweek's Sarah Kliff added her voice to the media campaign softening the image of late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart on Saturday with her report 'The Abortion Evangelist', but says she did not anticipate and has difficulty explaining her emotional reaction to witnessing Carhart actually take the life of an unborn child.
Kliff spent 4 days visiting Carhart's Nebraska abortuary, interviewing him, speaking with the mothers who were seeking abortions, and watching him at work. Painting him as a martyr for the cause, she describes Carhart's plight as one of the few remaining abortionists left in the country willing to abort late in pregnancy, and his commitment to that cause despite his fears of being killed by vigilante anti-abortionists, as was his friend George Tiller.
In a companion piece to the story, however, Kliff admits that while she is an experienced reporter on abortion-related issues, she was surprised by her emotional reaction to witnessing an abortion for the first time

The murder of the innocent is always difficult to watch except for the most calloused of individuals.
Let me help you Sarah - it was your conscience SCREAMING at you
Interesting, open honest reporting on this subject, from soneone who thought that they would NOT be affected. She could have easily written that it didn’t even phase her, but she didn’t. She also didn’t mention that these people had a choice in the matter either. I bet she switched positions on abortion.
I have this queasy feeling that this woman, honestly & for the first time, understands she witnessed the deliberate ending of an innocent human life...and that none of this was "real" until she saw it with her own eyes.
So, she was disturbed, but she still thinks it’s a woman’s right to choose. She is just like the guards at the Nazi gas chambers, who probably were a little disturbed in ways they couldn’t explain, but they were sure that society had a right to choose.
Wonder how many germans would have supported the nazis if they had seen the inside of a concentration camps...?
“While to her the first-term abortions “looked like an extended, more invasive version of a standard ob-gyn exam,” “there was a discomfort I hadn’t expected,” she says, “my emotional reaction to watching abortions.””
Lets call this what it is. She was Not uncomfortable from watching an abortion but rather from the knowledge that an unborn human was being killed. Placing a name on an event does not change the event.
I bet she didn’t change positions. I bet she was annoyed that she felt any emotion at all.
Anyone who is comforatable with killing unborn babies—and those that survive an abortion—is missing their humanity.
Now I know why the feminazis call a developing human a “blob of cells” and why they do everything they can to prevent mothers from seeing their babies with ultrasound.
Uh, yeah, lady, you are watching a murder. Glad you were discomforted over that. Maybe, just maybe, it will give you real food for thought.
Murder is now called "work?"
Regardless of the stage of pregnancy, whether it's surgical or suction,
It's still an ugly, ugly thing:
In Oklahoma, they declared as “unconstitutional” the law that required mothers to see their babies with ultrasound and having the doctor point out the various anatomical regions.
That makes no sense. There's a life there, no matter how you look at it. A tiny being with a beating heart. Even if stillborn, the life was once there. None of this "there's a life there" or "there's not a life there" nonsense; or "potential" life. Life is life. If it's there in the womb, it's alive from the moment of conception, growing bigger every day. With a body, fingers, toes, eyelashes, a sucking thumb, a smile... it's a being at its tiniest and most fragile.
IMO, it looked like she was rather surprised that she was uncomfortable. Now the degree of uncomfortable could be questioned. But hey, some people stop eating meat after seeing a slaughter house, so you never know.
It should be a law that ALL politicians in Washington who are for abortion BE REQUIRED to sit thru a abotation.
And my daughter and son in law adopt the newly born, the children have a life with the world as their goal to suceed in, not a grave before life can start.
