Former Abortionist: Dr. Arnold Halpern

Dr. Arnold Hapern was the director of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. In the movie “Eclipse of Reason,” which was produced by former abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson, he tells of his conversion:

legs of an unborn baby at 11 weeks

“…I never personally considered a fetus a real baby until 20 weeks of gestation when one could hear the fetal heart tones and a woman feel movement. Now somewhere along the line I was apprised or thought I was apprised that the fetus was not a human being until it arrived to the point where women could feel that baby move. As we’ve gone from1982 to 1986 and into the late 1980s we realize that the fetus really is a child and that it really is moving, and that the heart beat is really beating by the use of ultrasound and modern techniques of detecting the fetus.… In one day I walk to the abortion clinic with 10 or 12 or 13 women waiting and I realized I cannot do anymore abortions. I felt uncomfortable doing it, I felt disgusted at myself. I realized now that I’d started doing second trimester abortions and not only did I I see a little tissue coming out ,  I saw fetal parts, I saw babies coming out, and I felt that I was so uncomfortable at this point that I could not continue and I walked out of the clinic and left that clinic without doing the abortions and never entered the abortion clinic again.”
