In an article in the prestigious British Medical Journal, an anonymous abortionist candidly discusses his work:
I can now say openly that I do think I am ending a life every time I do an abortion, but I do it as someone who has certain skill which is put at the disposal of a woman who does not want her pregnancy to continue. I do not regret all the agonizing – it has helped me to understand the problems that each woman faces when deciding about her abortion.
It seems that this doctor has hardened his heart towards the children he kills. He acknowledges taking lives, but rationalizes it.
