Dr. Bernard Nathanson was a notorious abortionist in the United States, and hew was instrumental to the pro-abortion movement’s initiatives to legalize abortion on demand in the Supreme Court Cases Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. Nathanson later admitted to lying about the number of women who died from illegal abortions, which would later persuade some of the justices in their decisions. In fact, the pro-abortion lobby still uses Dr. Nathanson’s false numbers when they make their outrageous claims.
Dr. Nathanson later renounced his pro-abortion views when he came to the realization that the unborn are in fact human beings worthy of protection. He stopped performing abortions, and later became one of the most important pro-life activists in the movement.
One of Dr. Nathanson’s most persuasive teaching tools was a documentary called The Silent Scream. This documentary shows Dr. Nathanson explaining the different methods used by abortionists to dismember and destroy the unborn baby inside his mother’s womb. The documentary also shows an unborn baby on an ultrasound and the reality of what an abortion looks like on a television screen. The disturbing and sad demise of the unborn baby is revealed by Dr. Nathanson as he explains each step of the abortion.
The Silent Scream is well known by many in the pro-life movement. In fact, the short film persuaded many Americans, and even activated some of them to join in the cause to protect the unborn. This film is always worth sharing, particularly with those who think abortion is necessary, but fail to see the reality of what abortion truly is.
