A Surprising Pro-Life Story: "Meet Dr. Bernard Nathanson, Famous Ex-Abortionist." An Account


Long the public face of the abortion cause in America, he set up the first abortion clinic and personally performed 5,000 abortions himself. But then he realized that unborn babies are human beings and became a pro-life. An atheist, his experience with pro-life people caused him to become a Catholic, though to further the abortion cause he had once demonized the Catholic Church.

Wow, what a heartening story. I have no doubt that Dr. Nathanson changed his ways through the grace of God, obtained from the many, many prayers and rosaries offered up by those silent prayer warriors standing outside abortion clinics nationwide. God bless them!

God bless and have mercy on Dr. N. also, it couldn’t have been easy for him to do an about face like that. Just goes to show-- the truth will set you free.

Thank you for that.


Bernard Nathanson published a book–“Aborting America,” in 1979, which outlines the tactics he used to promote abortion. It is still available. He also wrote “The Hand of God–A Journey from Death to Life,” and “Abortion Papers: Inside the Abortion Mentality.”
