Excerpts From Condemned Abortion Doctor Killer Paul Hill

Published: Sep 2, 2003

These are excerpts from condemned murderer Paul Hill, a former preacher, who spoke publicly Tuesday at Florida State Prison. Hill is scheduled to be put to death Wednesday for the 1994 murders of Dr. John Britton, who performed abortions in Pensacola, and the doctor's unarmed escort, retired air force officer James Barrett.


"The short answer is no. I don't feel any remorse because I think it was a good thing, and instead of being shocked, more people should do what I did. I think more people should act as I acted."


"I didn't seek the death penalty. The state's seeking the death penalty, but I'm willing and I feel very honored that they are most likely going to kill me for what I did. I'm certainly, to be quite honest, I'm expecting a great reward in heaven for my obedience."


"I believe that the Lord has used and will use what I did in a marvelous way. I'm standing for a principal. I'm willing to die for the principal. I consider it a great honor to die, possibly die, for having defended innocent human beings."


"What I did I believe was an inalienable right or duty. You don't have to ask the government (for) permission to defend your unborn child or your neighbor's unborn child. And if we want that duty to be recognized we have to assert it."
