Abortion Is Not “Merely Suctioning out A Mass of Cells”

Ten weeks

Dr. Bernard Nathanson, former abortionist stated:

“In the early 70s we began to use machinery, apparatus, and instruments which allowed us to finally put a larger and much more sophisticated window into the womb. But for the first time as a physician and as an ethical person, I began to understand that more was involved in an abortion than merely suctioning out a mass of cells, a few grams of tissue. I began to be aware that there was something here which had a moral density to it which commanded respect.”

Bernard Nathanson, cited in Abortion: a Reflection on Life (Fort Lauderdale, Florida: Coral Ridge Ministries, 1989) P 5
