The L.A. Times profiles Arkansas abortionist Dr. William F. Harrison. Brace yourself before reading this gruesome article. The piece is a shadow of objective journalism in its depiction of Harrison as one front in the abortion wars. But the author, Stephanie Simon, makes sure that the reader comes away with a benevolent view of the good doctor -- 20,000 abortions under his belt, and not a one in the third trimester -- and seeing abortion as the only option for his young "patients."
Still, there are a few moments of honesty. The author depicts being in the room during an abortion, bringing out the inhumanity of it all. And amazingly, Dr. Harrison admits he is "destroying life."
