Hippocrates' Conscience

Daniel Clark posts 'Uncool Ghouls: Why Abortionists are Dying Out' on Intellectual Conservative.


According to the April 14th London Evening Standard, abortion industry insiders are blaming the decline in the number of abortionists on "the lack of 'glamour' involved in the work." That's the opinion of a spokesman for England's largest chain of abortion clinics, who explains, "It's not glamorous work for doctors, which may partly explain the increasing difficulty in recruitment over the last five or six years."

The chief executive of the spookily titled British Pregnancy Advisory Service agrees that "it may not be the most glamorous medical specialty on the face of it." A spokeswoman for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists adds, "It is not a sexy area." [...]

There are plenty of legitimate fields of medicine that are not glamorous either, but we don't read news articles bemoaning the dearth of urologists and proctologists, for example. For that matter, there are few jobs in the world less glamorous than telemarketing, but no sane person would argue that there are not enough telemarketers in the world. There must, therefore, be some less superficial explanation for the dwindling number of abortionists.

Maybe a pro-abortion activist can successfully hide from the truth behind soothing euphemisms like "choice" and "reproductive freedom," but the person who physically carries out the act cannot. While he's destroying and disposing of the tiny human bodies, he can't escape the reality of it by shutting his eyes, clasping his hands over his ears and singing Alexander's Ragtime Band. Unlike his celebrity supporters from the land of make-believe, he has no happy place to which he can escape.

It's no great mystery that talented young doctors would rather use their skills to heal rather than slaughter. This is the natural result of a common human characteristic, known to those of us outside the pro-abortion movement as a "conscience," and known within feminist circles as a devious mind-control device designed to perpetuate patriarchal tyranny.

It wouldn't surprise me if the most inept of medical school graduates had the highest representation in the abortion industry as well.

Doesn't matter how they got there, they're still ghouls. I don't know how someone could choose that field.
