Most doctors go into their profession with a commitment to heal and care for their patients. But a few are making the destruction of human life their goal.
The Denver Post recently highlighted several Colorado medical students who plan to make a living aborting unborn babies.
Christine Hassell, a medical student at the Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine, is one of them. She said she had an “if not me, who?” moment after attending a conference by the pro-abortion group Medical Students for Choice last year.
“I chose this profession; it’s not up to me and how I personally feel,” Hassell said. “It’s a medical procedure that needs to be done, so I’m going to continue to do it.”
“There’s a gap that needs to be filled and if I don’t fill it, then, you know, women are going to fall through the cracks,” she continued.
It is no secret that there is a growing shortage of abortion providers in America, as fewer doctors agree to abort unborn babies. In 2016, a report from PBS Houston drew attention to the abortion industry’s struggle to find employees. Texas had 48 abortion doctor a few years ago, but now it’s down to 28, according to the report. Several abortion businesses also have closed in the past few years because their abortionist retired and they could not find a replacement.
In the wake of the shortage, abortion activists have been pushing legislation to allow nurse practitioners and midwives to do abortions.
Like Hassell, Jen Daniels, a medical student at the College of Osteopathic Medicine and former vice president of her Medical Students for Choice chapter, said the shortage prompted her to decide to do abortions.

“I never questioned that abortion was legal and available until I came to Colorado for medical school and kind of my eyes were opened,” Daniels told the newspaper.
“I find it truly bewildering how so much of our political atmosphere is driven by one medical procedure that is extraordinarily common, extremely safe and really positively impacts women’s lives,” she said.
Abortion is not safe, and a medical student should know that. Its purpose is to kill a unique, living human being in their mother’s womb.
Abortions can hurt mothers, too. Risks include future preterm births, blood clots, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, suicide, breast cancer and death. As of 2008, the Centers for Disease Control reported more than 400 women died from legal abortions in the United States, including 12 that year. The most recent annual report from the CDC says four women died from abortion complications in 2013. There could be more.
But Audrey Jaeger, a student at the College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Aly Sotiros, a student from the Colorado University School of Medicine, also want to do abortions, the report states.
“We traveled to Alabama for vacation a few months ago, and as much as we loved the beach, we said we can’t ever move here because I would be put in jail,” Sotiros said, referring to a new state law that bans abortions. It is not in effect, though.
The abortion industry has perverted the medical profession in America. Even the American Medical Association now supports abortion on demand. But abortion does not help or heal. Its purpose is to kill, to destroy an unborn baby’s life at their most vulnerable stage, and true medical professionals should have nothing to do with it.
