Dr. Bernard Nathanson's Prolife Conversion

Dr. Nathanson
...Nathanson was a key member of NARAL, the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws, a group in the US dedicated to making abortion legal in the US. I first encountered Nathanson when reading about the Silent Scream, a video that he produced in 1984 when he filmed a suction abortion. The results of that video caused the doctor who performed the abortion to cease doing abortions altogether and the person who edited the tape later withdrew from all public work; both were so affected by the experience. Nathanson himself took a while longer to form his decision to reject abortion. Being a man of no faith, he approached this completely from a scientific perspective, and over a period of a few years, he came to the conclusion that abortion did in fact end the life of a human being. He states that it was the emergence of ultrasound technology that brought about his conclusion that the unborn were human beings...
