Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based abortionist Dennis Christensen wants to retire but he has a problem. He told himself when he made plans to retire that he would only do so if he could find another abortion practitioner to take over his business.
But he can’t find any physicians willing to make it their job to kill babies in abortions.
If he and his partner Bernard Smith can’t find anyone else to run the ship, his Affiliated Medical Center will close down after 40 years of ending human lives in abortions. And a new law requiring Wisconsin abortionists to have admitting privileges at a local hospital to provide emergency medical care for the many women injured in botched abortions is exacerbating the situation for Christensen.
The Milwaukee newspaper has more on this situation and the potential good news for the pro-life community in the Badger state:
Abortion opponents disagree. Supporters of the recent state law think doctors like Christensen should be held to a higher standard if they want to work with patients.
And with a federal judge considering whether the state can require hospital admitting privileges of doctors who provide abortions, Affiliated may soon have to close its doors.
Christensen, who said he has performed 85,000 to 95,000 abortions, believes the harassment and stigmatization he has faced pale in comparison to the gratitude of the women he sees. But for many prospective hires, the harassment is a deterring factor, he said.
“So I see it as a calling, I guess,” Christensen said. “But I’ve been called, I’ve served and now I’d like to call someone else.”
Lyons sees her own long-standing role with her anti-abortion organization in a similar light.
“I definitely think it’s a calling,” Lyons said. “You feel a passion for the people who are negatively impacted by these acts.”
