    I have to say this man is truly one of the scariest people I have ever had the displeasure of hearing about. The scariest part of this is his reasoning for performing abortions, and second is that he is proud to be doing it. And this article is kind to him leaving out many of his scariest quotes that interviewer Martin Bashir did recently on Nighline.

    An excellent find, Bonnie; a most disturbing read. I think what hurts me most is the screwed-up sense of priorities some of these girls have. And, the abortionist's own words offer a chilling reminder that the worst of evildoers can justify their actions to themselves. Stalin's crimes seemed perfectly reasonable to himself - in the context of HIS mindset and HIS values.

    This is an incredibly hot topic, and I believe valid arguments can be made on both sides of the fence.




    I applaud the doctor for being so candid even while some of the stories chill me to the bone.

    they will all answer to the higher power. This coming from the more secular of the religious of the board.

    Do you also applaud Hitler for being so candid about his Jew hatred?

    Gee, Bonnie.... I thought Joesf Mengele died years ago.. (he was the "doctor" known as "The Angel of Death" for his experiments on prisoners at Auschwitz) I guess his spirit lives on with creeps like this guy

    Here's an irony for you, from the Hippocratic Oath -- Classical Version

    I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.

    the modern day Hippocratic Oath does not have a similar phrase...

    It is beyond my comprehension how anyone would or could even think of a fetus as being a living human being. It is part of tissue of a woman. When the umbilical cord is cut and it is breathing on its own, then it is a living viable human being. If I were a Dr. I would specialize in abortions.

    Modern science is clear on this, it is a separate genetic entity that relies on another for life. It is a separate life, definitively defined by its DNA. To assume it is of only one life is not taking science and making a conclusion it is taking emotion and making a belief contrary to science.

    I could somewhat understand somebody talking like this about the first 5 weeks before brainwave activity begins, that it might not yet be a 'person' but it certainly cannot scientifically be considered a part of the other life.

    Much like a child after birth the child relies on its mother for life, to judge it to be less than a separate life is only a way to assuage guilt and presume a right to end that life without regard to its right to live.
