Here I am, send me to kill the unborn

Abortionist William Harrison has a diary at DailyKos discussing why he performs abortions. He mentions this piece was written a while ago. I'm guessing sometime in the early 90's since he uses abortion statistics from 1990. I found this part especially sickening.
Here is the short answer.

Like multitudes before me and, I trust, multitudes to come, I eventually heard (Try as I might to avoid hearing it!) in that mother's grief-filled declaration, "Oh God, Doctor, I was hoping it was cancer", a still, small voice asking, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" to which I was at last compelled to reply, "here am I, send me."
This is the same crackpot who has compared aborting children to making women "born again."

Harrison does again admit he's ending a life.
No one, neither the patient receiving an abortion, nor the person doing the abortion, is ever, at anytime, unaware that they are ending a life. We just don't believe that a developing embryo or fetus, whose mother cannot or will not accept it, has the same moral claims on us, claims to autonomy and justice, that an adolescent or adult woman has.
Harrison fails to provide any reasons for why he doesn't believe the unborn have the same moral claims as older, more developed human beings.
