    One-time notorious abortion doctor and key architect of the abortion movement, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, is speaking from the grave. His message: Embrace life.Over the weekend, author Terry Beatley spoke at a local right-to-life event here in South Florida. Beatley had met with Nathanson in 2009 (about a year before he died), and he gave her a charge to continue spreading the pro-life message. He told her, “teach the strategy of how I deceived America” to accept abortion.Nathanson’s message is most relevant these days, as the U. S. Supreme Court is possibly rethinking its infamous abortion decision from 1973, Roe v....

    At the time of the Roe v. Wade decision, I was a college student — an anti-war, mother-earth, feminist, hippie college student. That particular January I was taking a semester off, living in the D.C. area and volunteering at the feminist “underground newspaper” Off Our Backs. As you’d guess, I was strongly in favor of legalizing abortion. The bumper sticker on my car read, “Don’t labor under a misconception; legalize abortion.” The first issue of Off Our Backs after the Roe decision included one of my movie reviews, and also an essay by another member of the collective criticizing the...

    Inside Catholic ^ | February 26, 2011 | Robert R. Reilly
    Dr. Bernard Nathanson, once the foremost abortionist in the United States and then perhaps abortion's most effective opponent, died on Tuesday at age 84. The Washington Post obituary mentioned that his 28-minute film, The Silent Scream, released in 1985, "became a sensation, widely distributed by antiabortion groups and screened at the White House by President Ronald Reagan, who urged members of Congress to see the movie and 'move quickly to end the tragedy of abortion.'"Therein lies a tale in which I participated when I met Dr. Nathanson in the White House back in 1985. At the time, I was...

    NEW YORK — Dr. Bernard N. Nathanson, an obstetrician who oversaw the performance of about 75,000 abortions before becoming a leading pro-life advocate and a convert to the Catholic faith, died after a prolonged battle with cancer this morning in New York. He was 84. After performing his last abortion in 1979 and declaring himself to be pro-life, Nathanson produced the 1985 film The Silent Scream, which shows sonogram images of a child in the womb shrinking from an abortionist’s instruments, and the documentary film Eclipse of Reason, which displays and explains various abortion procedures in graphic detail. Both films...

    "I am personally responsible for 75,000 abortions. This legitimises my credentials to speak to you with some authority on the issue. I was one of the founders of the National Association for the Repeal of the Abortion Laws (NARAL) in the U.S. in 1968. A truthful poll of opinion then would have found that most Americans were againstpermissive abortion. Yet within five years we had convinced the U.S. Supreme Court to issue the decision which legalised abortion throughout America in 1973 and produced virtual abortion on demand up to birth. How did we do this? It is important to understandthe...

Dr. Nathanson continues to be a voice for the pro-life movement through speaking...

For forty years, the same five or six grossly false assertions, familiar to pro-life people everywhere, have manipulated the discussion on abortion and all related issues.

"I'm not an angry man," he assures, but neither is he cowed by the media or academe. He's armed and dangerous. Armed with the Catholic faith, and dangerous to the enemies of that faith., and a way to salvation for men and women who are seeking Christ. "Priests are warriors for Jesus Christ," he says. "They are the Navy Seals, the Army Rangers, and the Green Berets of the Catholic Church, and I'm proud to...

    by Dr David van Gend As senior Government figures state their view that there are too many abortions, especially late abortions, and pro-choice voices raise the spectre of backyard deaths if abortions are restricted by law, it is time, says Dr David van Gend, to correct the historical and clinical misconceptions surrounding the "myth" of the backyard butcher. There is no denying the power of the "No coat-hangers" cry raised by abortion pressure-groups in response to recent public statements by politicians, but it is the power of emotional blackmail. It says to citizens, if you put any limits at all...

    Gov. Gray Davis' pay for play fundraising scandal continues to metastasize, with new reports of official corruption impacting hard on his reelection chances against GOP challenger Bill Simon. News reports detail letters submitted to prosecutors in 1993, kept under wraps until this week, containing allegations that implicate then-State Controller Gray Davis in multiple schemes to trade official favors for campaign cash. In a 1993 letter released Wednesday by U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence Karlton, an attorney for Davis accuser Mark Nathanson alleges, "a number of instances where Gray Davis approached Mr. Nathanson, who was then a member of the California...

    Explosive charges that California's prolific fundraiser Governor Gray Davis used his official position to get contributions from developers have surfaced after years of being hidden by court order. Although Davis has heatedly denied the allegations, leveled against him by a convicted felon seeking leniency in his sentencing, his Republican opponent Bill Simon is demanding that the governor produce certain documents relating to the charges. Two letters sent by his attorneys to federal prosecutors on behalf of Mark L. Nathanson have been under seal since Nathanson's 1993 conviction. The Sacramento Bee has long sought release of the letters and the U.S....
