“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil.” –Isaiah 5:20
Hilary White reports for LifeSiteNews, Feb. 16, 2012, that Dr. Patricia Lohr, a leading abortionist in the United Kingdom, told an audience of abortion advocates meeting in London last September that killing children by abortion is “extremely gratifying.”
Lohr is the medical director of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), one of the UK’s busiest abortion organizations. The meeting was organized by the abortion industry lobby group Voice for Choice, a consortium of organizations dedicated to loosening Britain’s abortion law to allow abortion on demand and the expansion of abortion training in medical schools, as well as forcing legalization on Northern Ireland. Among the groups represented at the meeting was Family Planning Association — an affiliate of International Planned Parenthood.
Lohr said that she could never have fully understood or agreed with the abortionist “philosophy” until she actually started committing abortions herself. Proclaiming abortion to be “self-evidently” moral (when considering the “bad old days” when abortion was illegal of “wards full of septic, injured and dead women”), Lohr said that she began to conduct 2nd trimester surgical abortions during her training as a physician. She said that she performs abortions “as early as possible and as late as necessary” and that she was unapologetic about being “pro-choice, pro-child and pro-abortion.”
“It’s crucial for abortionists to talk about abortion as a good thing,” Lohr said, speaking of her personal enthusiasm for the abortionist ideology since encountering it first in New York as a teenager and later as the founder of a “pro-choice” group in medical school.
In her talk, Lohr accused pro-life activists in the Operation Rescue movement of “violence” when they tried to shut down abortion facilities in New York in the 1980s, while Lohr acted as an abortion “escort” at 19.
Lohr’s comments became public after a report was published on the internet by a pair of pro-life advocates, Daniel Blackman and Paul Smeaton, who work with the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children. Blackman had attended the “Voice for Choice” public meeting. He told LiftSiteNews.com: “It is horrifying. An abortionist’s desperate act of rationalisation of an unspeakable evil.”
Lohr has pressed for making abortion training mandatory for all medical students, and for restriction-free, legal abortion, paid for by the state. But a report in the July 2011 Journal of Medical Ethics found that almost half of the 733 medical students polled disagree with Lohr. These budding physicians believe doctors should be allowed to refuse “to perform any procedure to which they object on moral, cultural or religious grounds.”
For someone who calls herself “pro-choice,” Lohr sure is not “pro-choice” when it comes to medical school students and fellow doctors who do not choose to perform abortion. Lohr also seems to have missed that memo in med school about the Hippocratic oath “First, Do No Harm.”
Let’s call a spade a spade.
We call an individual who commits murder after murder a “serial killer.” We call a serial killer who finds killing “extremely gratifying” a psychopath. And we have a word for those who take pleasure in killing. The word is Evil.
And that’s what Lohr is — an evil psychopathic serial killer. Nor is her practice confined to the UK. I found a Dr. Patricia Lohr, M.D., who practices obstetrics and gynecology in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with a license in PA and California.
What is the probability of two medical doctors named Patricia Lohr — one in the UK, one in the United States — who are both ob/gyn?
Judging by the video of Lohr speaking at the “Voice for Choice” meeting, the American Dr. Patricia Lohr is the same Dr. Patricia Lohr who’s the medical director of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service because she does not have a British accent but speaks American English.
