Were We Saving Babies Or Killing Them?

Dr. Bernard Nathanson, former abortionist who performed thousands and thousands of abortions, describes how he would be aborting a baby on one floor of a hospital and then trying to save a baby of the same age on another floor.

“In the mid-70s, I would be up on one floor, putting the hypertonic saline into a woman 23 weeks pregnant, and on another floor down, I would have someone in labor at 23 weeks, and I would be trying to salvage this baby. The nurses were caught in the same bind, the same moral whipsaw. What were we doing here, were we saving babies or were we killing them?”

This baby was born at 23 weeks. Abortion is legal at this age in every state of the United States.
