This can't be good for the Hillary for President campaign

In an Amazon Book review of Bill Clinton's "My Life," Arkansas abortionist William Harrison described Hillary Clinton as a former patient and said that he and his wife were "good friends" with the Clintons during the early to mid-seventies. Harrison and his wife were even invited to the Clintons' wedding which Harrison describes as "small."

I have known Bill and Hillary Clinton personally since they both moved to Fayetteville to teach at the University of Arkansas Law School in the early 70s. I met Hillary first as her physician and she soon introduced me to her then boyfriend, Bill. My wife and I became good friends with Bill and Hillary and strong supporters for his political campaigns over the years.

According to Wikipedia, Bill and Hillary both starting teaching at the University of Arkansas Law School in 1974.

Harrison was recently featured in a Los Angeles Times article where it mentions:

Harrison opened an obstetrics and gynecology practice, but after the Supreme Court established abortion as a constitutional right in 1973, he decided to take on an additional specialty. Now 70, Harrison estimates he's terminated at least 20,000 pregnancies.

The article isn't very specific on when Harrison began providing abortions. Was it right after Roe or years later? So Harrison was an ob/gyn doctor who might have been providing abortions in the mid-70's when Hillary was his patient. The question that will have people wondering is: What was Hillary a patient for?

I personally doubt that it would be an abortion since I have a hard time believing Hillary would befriend someone who performed her abortion.

Regardless, I can hardly think that someone running for President of the United States wants to be known as a "good friend" to an abortionist.
