Former abortionist on abortion complication and counseling

Former abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson:

“My preoperative counseling consisted of a brief description of the procedure… and a perfunctory assurance that the “procedure” (those of us who practiced it never spoke of it as an abortion, but rather used the term “termination of pregnancy” or “procedure”) would have no effect on future fertility or on general health. We spoke with such confidence regarding these matters then, in the mid-sixties and the seventies; now it turns out there may be a relationship between abortion and breast cancer; thousands of women have indeed been rendered sterile in the aftermath of a botched abortion; and the death rate of women seeking abortion after the thirteenth week exceeds that of childbirth. The arrogance of those practicing medicine has always been recognized as an ugly appendage of the profession, but the massive hubris of the abortionist was and continues to be astonishing.
