Abortionist: I Perform Abortions Because I'm Christian

Sadly, I can't say I'm surprised by either the Catholic hospital or the Christian abortionist. But shame on both of them.

LifeSiteNews.com reports:

After a Catholic hospital in Colorado refused to remove a Planned Parenthood abortionist from its ob/gyn staff, pro-life advocates have organized a protest, featuring Live Action President Lila Rose, on Aug. 4.

“The reason I perform abortions is because I’m a Christian,” Richard Grossman, a Quaker, told the Durango Herald after a similar protest outside Mercy Regional Medical Center last year. “Personally, I believe in the strength, intellect and fortitude of women. When a woman says a fetus is a person, I think it is one. I believe the woman empowers the fetus.”

Grossman is the longest-serving physician at the hospital, having served there 44 years, but he also commits abortions on Wednesdays at Planned Parenthood of Durango. Pro-lifers say he is the only abortionist within a 200-mile radius.

I would not be too hard on the Diocese. I think Dr. Grossman’s words and actions are despicable and immoral. That said, the Diocese and the hospital can do little. Nothing he is doing outside his work with the Catholic hospital is illegal or outside the ethical bounds of the standard practice of medicine. (That does not imply that the standard practice of medicine meets the standards of Catholic health care ethics.) Also, privileges means the doctor has the right to practice medicine in the hospital, but the hospital does not pay the doctor. The patient pays the hospital for the use of its services and pays the doctor for his/her services. The hospital has no grounds to terminate privileges. Understand also, that if the hospital were allowed to terminate privileges based on the disapproval of his medical practice unconnected with the hospital, it could set the stage for the termination of privileges of pro-life doctors as well. A secular hospital that does perform abortions would feel free to terminate the privileges of a pro-life doctor who is affiliated with the local crisis pregnancy center. So yes, it is infuriating that this man who sees nothing wrong with terminating innocent lives based on the whims of others is practicing medicine in a Catholic hospital. Unless he is using his work at the Catholic hospital to recruit patients for his diabolical services, I don’t see the hospital or the Diocese have any avenue for direct action. The bishop could tell faithful Catholics that they should think carefully when choosing a doctor and seek one who practices in accord with Catholic principles. It would be reasonable for Catholics to boycott his practice just as they would boycott any business or institution that contributes to Planned Parenthood.

So many that call themselves Christian don't have any relationship with Christ... and consequently are unprepared to actually follow Him.

Anyone can say their Christian but their actions are what really proves their statement.

I'm not sure what my diocese's position is regarding. I tend to agree with my parish priest that abortion is an inappropriate choice that too many women feel they need to make and that we all need to pray for a solution to this moral dilemma.

I thought Quakers were against violence?

What kind of nonsense is this? A person is not a person because you say it is. That's a bunch of subjective claptrap. Goodness, the lengths people will go to to justify their crazy beliefs.
