Abortion Doctor: Abortion Patients Have Lives That Are “Out-Of-Control”

Michael Benjamin
Testimony: House Health care Committee, Full Committee Meeting September 14 and 15, 1989, Florida House of Representatives.

Speaking about the typical abortion patient,

“I think it is basically a personality type who generally has her life out of control and unfortunately nowadays there are no shortage of people in general whose lives are out of control. They drift, they tend to live for the moment in terms not only of their sexual practices but in terms of their economic lives and they are people in general who don’t think beyond the moment, who don’t plan for tomorrow, and who really will take life as it comes and deal with the rest later. It is a personality type is what I am saying rather than any race or socioeconomic group or things of that sort.”

He continues with his opinion of the first time abortion profile:

“There is certainly a very high incidence amongst teenagers and I believe the reason for that is that teenagers generally don’t think of consequences of their actions or ignorant as to contraceptive practices or deny the possibility of pregnancy…”

Benjamin performs abortions in South Florida.

Abortionist Views Women As Animals

In a rare moment of candor, a troubled abortionist admitted the following in a telephone call to a radio show:

“The first time, I felt like a murderer, but I did it again and again and again, and now, 20 years later, I am facing what happened to me as a doctor and as a human being. Sure, I got hard. Sure, the money was important. And oh, it was an easy thing, once I had taken the step, to see the women as animals and the babies as just tissue.”

Quoted by John Rice “The Murder of the Helpless Unborn…Abortion” Mursfreeboro, TN Sword of the Lord Publishers, p 31.

Clinic Workers’ Private Notes Reveal Contempt for Women

In 1988, pro-life activist Robert Ruff found a large number of Planned Parenthood documents in a dumpster behind the clinic. Included in this collection of documents was detailed accounts of abortions by Planned Parenthood employees. Here are a few of these notes:

“Apathetic towards her future and her past- left her child with people in Arkansas. Doesn’t know where she’ll be tomorrow. Very talkative, carefree….Seems to be a rather confused young lady. No problem concerning abortion decision or during procedure.”

“Acted twelve years old. Not very responsible for a seventeen year old. May be a repeater with a birth control attitude. Attitude toward birth control, HORRIBLE. Says she’ll probably quit them but doesn’t want any other method. Very immature.”

“Very bad patient. Wouldn’t relax at all. Kept pulling back on the table. She was ten or twelve weeks and didn’t have much pain but worked herself into a frenzy. Possible repeater.”

From Robert H. Ruff “Aborting Planned Parenthood: Documented Proof of Planned Parenthood’s Systematic Exploitation of Teenagers and Taxpayers” (New York: Life Cycle Books 1988)

Abortionist Says He Loves Inflicting Pain on Women

Former clinic worker Joy Davis  described what it was like working for a particular abortionist

“I was very uncomfortable around Dr. P, so I decided not to work for him any longer. He invited me to go out to dinner with him to discuss it. I went to dinner with him to discuss how I felt about the way he treated his patients, and how he acted. He stated to me that he loved inflicting pain on women, which was the reason he did not use any medications for pain.”

She mentioned another doctor from Tennessee that had told her

“that he did not have any respect for women, that he never respected a woman, and that he certainly didn’t respect women that let him come in there and let him do an abortion on them.”

Abortionist Calls Dying Woman Lazy

In an April 4, 1993, article, Legalizing abortion did not put the Butchers out of Business, the Pittsburgh Post- Gazette recalls a Chicago Tribune (10/22/91) report that at a license revocation hearing in October 1988, testimony revealed that abortionist Arnold Bickham had called the victim of a fatal botched abortion, Sylvia Moore, “lazy” because she failed to get up after receiving the abortion. It went on to report that Bickham pushed her out of his clinic in a wheelchair, despite her condition. She died at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center. Bickham never faced criminal charges in her death.

The Abortionist Who Hated Women

The LA Times reported March 22, 1992,(Patients allege gynecologist hated women) that abortionist Ivan C. Namihas might harbor a hatred of women. The article, Patients allege gynecologist hated women, presented interviews and court documents indicating that Namihas allegedly impregnated at least two of his patients, and that he reportedly told one woman, whom he treated for more than 10 years, that he became a gynecologist so he could vent his anger toward women.

A patient and temporary employee of abortionist Ivan C. Namihas, said in an affidavit that she “felt he had problems with women in general because he talked about how much he hated his mother and bad relationships he’d had with girlfriends and his wives.”

Another patient of abortionist Namihas said, “He told me the reason he became a gynecologist was because he hated women and he could use a knife to cut them.”

In the Patients allege gynecologist hated women: 3-22-1992, a former employee says abortionist Ivan C. Namihas, “seemed to get some perverse pleasure” from inflicting pain on patients and several women told grisly tales of enduring excruciating procedures without anesthesia.

Assistant US attorney Jonathan S. Shapiro said, “The term abuse of a position of trust, seems to have been coined for Dr. Ivan C. Namihas, MD. Arrogant, cruel, and greedy, he carried out a particular form of fraud against his victims.”

Abortion Clinic Worker Mocks Women

Darla Patterson an abortion clinic worker made these observations on the website, Tales from the Clinic:

Issue #1 – June 9, 2003 – 5:53pm

“The thing people most obviously lie about when they come in for an abortion is about their drug usage. It’s always funny to look at somebody’s chart and see that they claimed to have “tried some crack” three weeks before. Like it was casually offered at a party after they turned down the wine. There are the Eddie Haskell types who deny any usage until they have to sign a couple of consent forms with the word “death” listed as a complication. Some people act like they’re little Pollyannas, happily sniffing flowers that have been laced with narcotics without their knowledge. “My friend gave me a joint but it had a little sumpin’ sumpin’ (sic) in it,” this woman told me last week, trying to do her best impression of an ingenue. Due to her indecent attire and heavy-handed application of her make-up she looked more like she was doing a bad impression of some teen idol musician/actor doing a bad impression of an innocent teen in a Lifetime movie. So I guess I know a little sumpin’ sumpin’ (sic) about pregnant women who want to have abortions….”
