The life of ex-abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who died in February, teaches us about what abortion does to the doctor. He was responsible for some seventy-five thousand abortions. He ran the largest abortion mill in the Western world in New York City. He even aborted his own child. He said that when he finished that procedure, he had no feelings whatsoever of pain, regret or sadness, but only the feeling of technical satisfaction for a job well done.
Those who kill these children dehumanize themselves. Their hearts and consciences become dull. At one point, Dr. Nathanson began to see the contradiction between aborting babies on one floor of the clinic, and saving babies of the same size and age on another floor. Human reason began to shine through, and he eventually became pro-life.
