Abortion Doctor Says Hillary Clinton Was His Patient
By John-Henry Westen
NEW YORK, December 1, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Abortionist William F. Harrison was profiled in the LA Times yesterday, as a 70-year-old doctor who is proud to have “terminated at least 20,000 pregnancies” since he began performing abortions in 1973.ÂÂ What the LA Times did not report is that Harrison, claims to have had New York Senator Hillary Clinton as his patient right around the time he commenced the procedure.Â
Harrison wrote a book review for Amazon.com on Bill Clinton’s book “My Life”.Â In that July 24, 2004 review, unearthed by Covenant News blog, Harrison states, “I am almost 69 years old, and have been a student of all of the presidents of my lifetime, starting with FDR and going to GWB. I have known Bill and Hillary Clinton personally since they both moved to Fayetteville to teach at the University of Arkansas Law School in the early 70s. I met Hillary first as her physician and she soon introduced me to her then boyfriend, Bill.” (see the full review by Harrison here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/cdp/member-reviews/A2C2SRGZARH5R1/002-4454273-2953606?_encoding=UTF8 )Â
An Amazon.com profile of their book reviewer William Harrison, confirms that it is the same abortionist profiled by the Times. (see the Amazon profile here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A2C2SRGZARH5R1/ref=cm_aya_pdp_profile/002-4454273-2953606 )
For comment, LifeSiteNews.com attempted to contact Nina Blackwell, Senator Clinton’s spokesman in her New York office; however Blackwell did not return the call by press time.Â An incoming call log at LifeSiteNews.com offices indicates that someone from Senator Clinton’s office did call back.Â However, when the phone was answered the male caller acted as if he had dialed a wrong number and hung up.
The LA Times write-up on Harrison and his long-term friendship with the Clinton’s may help to explain the die-hard abortion activism of the Clintons.Â The Times reports that Harrison “warns every patient he sees that abortion may be illegal one day . . . He wants to stir them to activism.”
Harrison self-identifies as an “abortionist” and says, “I am destroying life,” but feels his patients are “born again” after he aborts their children.Â“When you end what the woman considers a disastrous pregnancy, she has literally been given her life back,” he told the Times.
However, unlike the Clintons who support even late-term or partial-birth abortions, Harrison will not perform them and considers such procedures, infanticide.Â“I just don’t think it should be done,” Harrison told the Times.
