In a 1999 interview with the Phoenix Times News, Finkel told a reporter: "This is my abortion machine, where I do the Lord's work. I heal the sick with it.... Got a Tech 9 [machine pistol]. Every gynecologist needs a Tech 9, so I could have more rounds, 'cause they're bringing me more Christians. There's a Smith and Wesson .40 and a few rifles, for crowd control, down at the [abortuary]." He and his wife Diane aborted their first child, whom they later referred to as "Ernie the Embryo."
According to Bruce Miller of Arizona Right to Choose, a pro-abortion group, Finkel is "an unrecognized hero in our community" who hasn't "gotten the accolades I think he should get." But John Jakubczyk of Arizona Right to Life, speaking after the verdict, concluded: "It was his total lack of regard for women that [was] his downfall."
