Dr. Grossman: a Catholic Funded Abortionist in Colorado’s Four Corners

May 26, 5:38 PM • Gualberto Garcia Jones – Denver Independent Examiner

Dr. Richard Grossman M.D. is the only abortionist in over 200 miles, and he’s not shy about publicly touting his grisly profession.
Every Wednesday of every week, Dr. Grossman kills children at the Durango Planned Parenthood. He charges a sliding scale based on the age of the child. For killing a child of 5-11 weeks he charges $425, 12-13 weeks $515, 14-15 weeks $780, and 16-17 weeks costs $880.

I first learned of Dr. Grossman, on Wednesday, Novemeber 18, 2009. I was participating in a vigil outside the abortuary that was organized by Life Guard of La Plata, a Catholic non-profit organization that helps mothers in crisis pregnancies. During this vigil, pro-lifers told me about Dr. Grossman.

I already knew what abortionists do, and I was saddened to see approximately six young ladies escorted in to participate in the killing of their children. What I wasn’t ready for was to learn what Dr. Grossman did on the other days when he wasn’t killing children.

Dr. Grossman worked, and still works at a Catholic hospital, Mercy Regional Medical Center, as a staff physician with full medical privileges!
Here is a man that kills children once a week, and he is employed by a hospital that is supposed to share my belief that what he does is murder? What in the world was going on? I immediately fired off an email to my Bishops.

Despite repeated entreaties to my Bishops, I have not learned of any action being taken to end this scandalous situation. I have since learned that local pro-life activists (Catholic and Protestant) have been trying to get the Catholic church to step in and stop Dr. Grossman for at least three years!

It should be noted, that while I realize that it is scandalous to point out this ongoing situation within the Catholic church, it is a much more egregious scandal to let it continue unaddressed.

Dr. Grossman would not be able to financially maintain himself on what he earns killing children one day a week. Does this not make Mercy Hospital in Durango and the Catholic Church a material facilitator to the killing? In effect, the Catholic Church, Mercy Hospital, and the Catholic Health Initiatives (based in Denver) is subsidizing abortion services in the Four Corners area.

If that were not bad enough, and it is, Dr. Grossman openly promotes eugenics in his regular column for the local Durango newspaper, the Durango Herald in a column entitled Population Matters (BELOW) .

It seems that the Catholic church is not capable of putting a stop to Dr. Grossman’s evil audacity. The reason, according to local activists is that the hospital and the church fear federal employement discrimination lawsuits. There is however, a valid basis to believe that this Catholic hospital would be within its right to fire a murderer such as Dr. Grossman, although it is more likely that the church would lose a lawsuit from Dr. Grossman.

When it comes down to it what makes a church like the Catholic church great is its claim to be the repository of the Truth, not the health of its bank accounts.
In an age when the Catholic church is sued on an almost daily basis, wouldn’t it be refreshing if the church were sued for preventing child killing at its hospitals instead of for allowing children to be molested.

I for one would welcome the fight. In the meantime I will be helping activists in the Durango area protest, not only at the abortuary, but at the Catholic hospital that makes it possible for Dr. Grossman to kill children and still make a good living.

Population points to limits in thorny issue of immigration
by Richard Grossman
Article Last Updated; Sunday, August 23, 2009 9:33AM

Immigration is an important part of the study of human population. It is a part that I have tried to ignore because I have strong, but conflicted, feelings about it.

In December 2007, a large package arrived from our son Bryan and daughter-in-law before Christmas. They were here for its opening – and what a surprise it was! We marveled at a copy of a ship’s manifest dated August 28, 1906, showing the names of my father (age 4) and grandmother. They had traveled to Ellis Island, N.Y., aboard the S.S. Potsdam.

The downside of immigration to the United States is that we already are the most overpopulated country in the world, in a sense. We are not able to nurture all the people who would like to move here. Yes, the land can hold more people, but our extravagant consumption has made our numbers unsustainable.

My father didn’t talk much about his childhood. Growing up an Orthodox Jew, he was disowned by his family when he married my mother, a Christian. Despite their rocky start, my parents were together 60 years. I am happy that our country had an open immigration policy last century.

Our family received another benefit from immigration when Bryan e-mailed us that he was “the luckiest person in the world.” Previously hesitant to share details about his personal life, he had just met Ianina, his future wife. He had traveled to Ukraine partly because that is where “Papa Lou” (his grandfather) had been born.

Bryan returned to Ukraine a few months after his first visit with an engagement ring. It took several months to negotiate our country’s immigration laws, but Ianina received a 90-day fiancée visa. She flew alone to New York, where Bryan greeted her at the airport. It was the first time she had ever been on an airplane, and the first time outside her native land.
The first time we talked with Ianina we knew why Bryan considered himself so lucky. She had just started to study English and still had a heavy accent, but she was outgoing and charming. In those first weeks in New York, Ianina improved her English by traveling around the city with a camera. She would stop strangers on the street and ask them to take her picture, and then strike up a conversation.

Immigrants coming to the United States bring with them many wonderful characteristics. We are lucky to be able to enjoy many different authentic foods and other aspects of diverse cultures. Recent immigrants perform much of the menial work that citizens are loath to do; just look in the kitchens of Durango restaurants. People who leave their native lands often are more enterprising than those who stay behind; my father was a good example. You can thank (or curse) him if you ever have had a root canal done, because it was he who perfected that technique.

Many rich countries are facing a problem caused by decreasing population growth rates. They lack people to do strenuous labor, and some countries even import “guest” workers for this reason. Although our government doesn’t approve of illegal immigrants, parts of our economy depend on them.

There are several categories of foreigners who are granted legal admission to the United States. They include children coming to be adopted, a family member rejoining a family, people with needed skills (such as physicians), refugees and asylum seekers and spouses or fiancé(e)s, such as Ianina.

The downside of immigration to the United States is that we already are the most overpopulated country in the world, in a sense. We are not able to nurture all the people who would like to move here. Yes, the land can hold more people, but our extravagant consumption has made our numbers unsustainable. The ecological footprint of the average person in the United States is the largest for any country, and it is many times that of a person in a developing country.

When people move to our country, they usually increase their consumption, thus their impact increases. Fortunately, they also tend to have smaller families than they might in their home country.

Allowing some immigrants to enter the United States certainly serves our country’s purposes. Currently, more than 1 million people enter the country legally every year, and perhaps the same number enters illegally. What is the correct number of immigrants? I don’t know, but it certainly is fewer than the current million. The last time I wrote on this subject was 1998 when we allowed in 800,000 immigrants. I suggested 300,000 would be a reasonable limit, and it still seems that way.

The United States does not have a population policy, but it clearly needs one if we are going to live within sustainable limits. Slowing immigration would be an important part of such a policy.

Here is another of Dr. Grossman’s eugenic ideals – limiting births:

Title: Smaller Families for a Healthy Environment (E-Magazine)

You might think that there is not much difference between a family of two children and one with three, but there is a large disparity after a few generations. If each of your three children has three kids, and so on, you will have 27 great grandchildren. In five generations there will be 243 progeny. If there had only been two per couple, there would only be eight great grandchildren, and 32 great, great, great grandchildren. So at the end of five generations we compare 243 with 32; the difference is over seven fold!

People used to believe that a single child would be spoiled and would not prosper, but recent studies have shown that this is not true. In fact, an only child is likely to be a high achiever and to be well adjusted. Some up-to-date information about only kids can be found in prolific author Bill McKibben’s book Maybe One.

If you are concerned that an only child will suffer from the lack of siblings, there are ways to ensure the advantages of socializing with other kids. If you parent a single child, try not to focus all of your attention on her. Have her spend time with cousins. Choose a neighborhood that has children of compatible ages. Find activities for your child to do with other children; a good preschool is an excellent way to get children together. You might trade cooperative “sitting,” or be a day-care provider.

Those of us who choose not to bear children have a support group all our own: Childfree By Choice. If you are unsure about having kids, the group meets your needs with material for people still trying to make up their minds about being parents—there’s even a bunch of jokes about childlessness. More and more people are choosing the option to forego children. Now about one in five women will not bear any child, while a few years ago it was only one in six.

Doesn’t surprise me that another Planned Parenthood abortionist is in favor of Immigration Limitation, Population Control, and Eugenics. Take a look at what Planned Parenthood was founded on in the film: Maafa21 (Clip Below)
