Dr. Bernard Nathanson
Dr. Bernard Nathanson committed over 75,000 abortions before eventually being convinced that abortion was murder, and becoming an outspoken pro-lifer. LifeNews.com reports on his comments regarding the killing of late term abortionist George Tiller who was responsible for well over 60,000 abortions.
“I knew George Tiller years ago when I was on the pro-abortion side,” he told the Washington Times. “He came to a course I was giving in the technique of abortion in New York in 1970 under the auspices of NARAL. And I did late-term abortions until I changed my opinion as of 1980.”
“My switch to pro-life had nothing to do with religion,” he told the newspaper.
“Tiller was a church-going man, which doesn’t say a whole lot in this country, but one wonders why he never changed his mind based on the scientific evidence. That is where I changed my mind, based on fetoscopies and ultrasound studies,” Nathanson added.
“Once we had ultrasound in place, we could study the fetus and see it was a member of our community. If you don’t do that, you’re just a creature of political ideology. In 1970, there were approximately 1,100 articles on the functioning of the fetus. By 1990, there were 22,000. The data piled up swiftly and opened a window into the womb,” Nathanson continued.
