It was a bizarre scene outside San Diego’s Family Planning Associates clinic when an abortion doctor exited the front door and got right in the face of a pro-life activist, who recorded the entire exchange.
Life Site News identified the physician as Dr. Robert Santella, and the clip — uploaded apparently by the activist last Monday — told the rest of the story.
After the pro-life activist told Santella he needed to repent of his sins, the doctor walked right past a wide-eyed security guard, got close to the activist’s face and growled, “Why?”
Santella, who used his gutteral tone the whole time, added, “Stinky breath!”
“That’s pretty evil of you, sir,” the activist remarked.
Santella replied that he agrees he’s evil and then let out another growl.
The doctor then raised his right hand, in which he held a pair of scissors. According to Life Site, a second video from an opposite angle showed Santella raising the scissors to about the same height as the activist’s neck.
“Wow, that’s what you do to babies, huh?” the activist said.
“Yeah, I love it,” Santella answered.
When the activist mentioned turning to Jesus Christ, the doctor brushed off the suggestion.
“Oh, I never go to Christ,” Santella growled again. “I don’t listen to Christ.”
He added, “I do have a darkened heart … very, very much so” and agreed he’d someday stand before God in judgment.
After the activist mockingly told Santella to “keep tearing the babies apart,” the doctor retorted, “Yeah, I will.”
The security guard — who broke into a smile early in the confrontation after first appearing alarmed — told the doctor he had a phone call, and the scene came to an end.
