The laws of evidence recognize that a declaration against interest is entitled to heightened credibility, because people rarely make statements that are against their best interest unless they are certain the statement is true. An example might be a car salesman who stands to profit by selling a used car to you, but who tells you up front that the car has been in three accidents and has carburetor problems.
Abortion is a very lucrative business. A doctor or other health care professional who has performed abortions and profited from them is unlikely to say publicly that abortion is murder, unless he has become thoroughly convinced that the unborn child is a living human being. Therefore, under the laws of evidence statements by such medical professionals are entitled to great credibility.
Dr. Peter Hammond (http://frontline NULL.org NULL.za/about_director NULL.htm) of Frontline Fellowship (http://www NULL.frontlinefellowship NULL.net/) has compiled statements (http://www NULL.christianaction NULL.org NULL.za/articles/AbortionIsMurder NULL.htm) of medical personnel who have been involved in the abortion business, and who have concluded that abortion is murder. Consider some of these statements:
Carol Everett was involved in the abortion industry. Not only did she perform abortions, but she also had an abortion. When asked: “What is the governing force behind the abortion industry?” Carol answered: “Money. It is a very lucrative business. It is the largest unregulated industry…most of the clinics are run in chains because it is so profitable.”
Carol explained: “Every woman has two questions, ‘is it a baby?’ and ‘does it hurt?’ The abortionist must answer ‘No.’ He/she must try to secure the consent of the woman in the collection of the clinic’s fee. The women are told that they were dealing with a product of conception or a glob of tissue. They were told that there would be only slight cramping, whereas, in reality, an abortion is excruciatingly painful.”
When asked what type of counseling was offered at the clinic, Carol Everett answered: “We didn’t do any real counseling. We sold abortion.” In answer to how they disposed of the aborted babies, Carol explained: “We put them down the garbage disposal.”
A former abortion counselor, Debra Henry admitted: “We were told to find the woman’s weakness and work on it. The women were never given any alternatives. They were told how much trouble it was to have a baby.”
Former abortion counselor, Nita Whitten admitted: “It’s a lie when they tell you they are doing it to help women, because they are not. They are doing it for the money.”
Former abortion counselor, Kathy Sparks, said: “The counselor at our clinic would cry with the girls at the drop of a pin. She would find out what was driving them to want to abort the child and she would magnify it.”
Former abortionist, David Brewer, M.D., admitted: “My heart got calloused against the fact that I was murderer, but the baby lying in a cold bowl educated me to what abortion really was.”
Former abortionist, Antony Levatino, M.D., said: “I want the general public to know that the doctors know that this is a person, this is a baby. That this is not some kind of glob of tissue…”
Former abortionist, Joseph Randall, M.D., said: “The picture of the baby on the ultrasound bothered me more than anything else. The staff couldn’t take it. Women who were having abortions were never allowed to see their ultrasounds.”
Former abortionist, MacArthur Hill, M.D., confessed: “I am a murderer. I have taken the lives of innocent babies and I have ripped them from their mothers wombs with a powerful vacuum machine.”
Former abortionist, Bernard N. Nathanson, M.D. (http://www NULL.citizenlink NULL.org/content/A000008029 NULL.cfm), was once a pioneer and leader in the abortion industry. He led the campaign for the legalization of abortion in America and admitted that he and other abortion advocates blatantly lied to congress in order to get abortion legal. Dr. Nathanson presided over 60,000 abortions before being converted. Not only did Dr. Nathanson leave the abortion industry, but he has since been dedicated to fighting against abortion. Dr. Nathanson admits that abortion is murder. He has produced such documentaries as The Silent Scream (http://www NULL.silentscream NULL.org/), and written the book: The Hand of God (http://books NULL.google NULL.com/books?id=hZcxBo24v5AC&pg=PA187&lpg=PA187&dq=bernard+nathanson+hand+of+god&source=bl&ots=F2X_M4x_Ka&sig=ASF_gkpCQZ-cI_4ctNDF2VFRG_8&hl=en&ei=hf9hS9_aIMqXtgeKydHWDQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4&ved=0CBYQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q=&f=false) – a journey from death to life by the abortion doctor who changed his mind.
I commend Dr. Hammond for compiling and publicizing this evidence, and I commend these health care professionals for having the courage and honesty to tell the truth. As to their past involvement in abortion, let us remember that by the blood of Jesus Christ, God forgives all of our sins if we truly believe and repent.
