FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Sept. 26 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Arkansas abortionist William Harrison, 75, died on Friday, September 24, 2010, after a four-month bout with leukemia. He closed his Fayetteville abortion clinic on July 30.
Harrison was a crusty old man who boasted of having done over 20,000 abortions. He openly called himself an "abortionist" and, according to the LA Times, acknowledged, "I am destroying life."
He was known to mock Christians and their beliefs as they prayed for him outside his abortion clinic, and heretically called his post-operative patients "born again."
Thankfully, there is no one to take his place, and today Northwest Arkansas remains abortion-free.
"We are thankful that this man will never again have the opportunity to kill any more babies, hurt any more women, or cause any more human misery on this Earth," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "In the end, God always gets the last word. Our Christian faith informs us that one day we will all have to stand before God and give an account for our lives. Without faith in Christ, the outlook for Mr. Harrison's meeting with his Maker is grim. We pray other aging abortionists around the nation will not follow Harrison's example, but will instead find repentance and forgiveness for their bloodguilt through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ."
