Nathanson reveals in "Aborting America" how he performed or presided over 75,000 abortions and ran the largest abortion clinic in the world for a time. He was an atheist of Jewish heritage who also aborted two of his own children.
All of this makes "Aborting America" highly credible. He had nothing to gain but the wrath of legions of pro-abortion activists who berated him as a traitor. His revulsion of abortion came about over several years time after the advent of ultrasound proved too strong for him to remain in denial of the fact that he was killing living, human babies, and the realization that it is evil.
Read this book to learn just how abortion was sold to America by lies and clever manipulation. Then read Nathanson's "The Hand of God" published 17 years later, to learn of the remarkable odyssey Nathanson went through in order to quiet his conscience and find redemption through Christianity.
This books names names and give dates, and gives an insight into the strategy sessions. It also paints a clear picture of the cynical and deliberate (and largely successful) effort to make use of latent anti-Catholic bigotry in the US to convince people that laws against abortion were a consequence of the influence of the Catholic Church, despite the fact that the laws in question were recommended by Protestant physicians in the 19th century at a time when the number of Catholics in the US was too small for there to be anything remotely like a "Catholic vote." This attempt to prevent people from actually thinking about the matter was largely successful, especially in the backlash that followed (and continues following) the radical Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton decisions.
The book also tells of the author's personal journey, as he wound up running the largest abortion facility in the country after New York legalized abortion (pre Roe vs. Wade), thereafter became somewhat suspicious of the intentions of those spearheading the movement, and eventually decided that abortion was not moral.Read more ›
