Abortionist Bernard Nathanson turned pro-life activist (part 8)

My sons Wilson (on left) and Hunter (on right) went to California and visited Yosemite National Park with our friend Sherwood Haisty Jr. March 21-27. Here they are standing in front of the tallest waterfall in North America.

The only surviving founding member of NARAL, Dr. Bernard Nathanson gives his testimony of NARAL’s foundation of deception when it comes to abortion.

Butler advances to their second straight title game appearance. VCU comes up short, but they proved that they were a worthy team to be invited to the NCAA.

The Hand of God-Selected Quotes from Bernard N. Nathanson, M.D.,

Nathanson quotes Dr. Louis Lasagna from Johns Hopkins:

Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given to me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life [italics added]: this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God. p. 50.

“There were perhaps three hundred or so deaths from criminal abortions annually in the United States in the sixties, but NARAL in its press releases claimed to have data that supported a figure of five thousand.” p. 90. The NARAL numbers were a lie.

Nathanson quotes Machiavellian strategy in advancing abortion, “There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct or more uncertain in its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.” p. 90.

Nathanson quotes Napoleon, “L’audace, toujours l’audace” (“Boldness, always boldness”). p. 90.

Nathanson was counted himself at one time, “a Reform Jew or atheist.” p. 107.

“Robert Lifton, a psychiatrist, examined the behavior of Nazi doctors who presided over the mass slaughter in the camps and then returned to ordinary family life at the end of the working day. He termed this phenomenon “doubling,” the division of the self into two functioning wholes. The [abortion] physicians I [employed] were…mercifully unburdened with ethical or moral baggage.” p.107.

“I had come to the conclusion that there was no reason for an abortion at any time; this person in the womb is a living human being, and we could not continue to wage war against the most defenseless of human beings. Having looked at the ultrasound, I could no longer go on as before.” p.128.

Rex Nelson wrote in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on April 2, 2011 a great article called “Arkansas Bucket List.” The readers of his blog http://www.rexnelsonsouthernfried.com came up with a list of things you must do at least once in your life to be considered a well-rounded Arkansan. Nelson asked others to add their suggestions at his website. I am going through the list slowly.

1. Show up for an Arkansas Travelers game at Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock when there’s either midget wrestling or it’s clunker car night. (I sure have enjoyed going to the Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock where the Travelers games. I love the view of downtown Little Rock that you can see from the ballpark at night.)

2. Watch the toad races in downtown Conway during Toad Suck Daze
