Dr. Bernard Nathanson


He shows you how the unthinkable is done

I WARN YOU, IT'S NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!!!!!


I guess the good Doctor, after doing Tshuveh, decided that Jews were not in this mission with him. He ר"ל converted to Catholicism.

He probably couldn't deal with the RaMBa"M's position regarding Yotzei Dofan.

DID you watch the video? Did you see the body parts just lying there all chopped up? שה' ישמור

Sort of like Dr.Laura, looking for support among Jews, and coming away disappointed?

"DID you watch the video?..."

I saw this thing over 20 years ago when it made a serious sensation nationwide and had the NARAL and Planned Parenthood folks all a-tizzy trying to disprove its content. Like I said, I think even halachic considerations allowing the procedure in limited circumstances would have been far too much for him to bear. In his mind he is in better company with the Papists!

when would Halocheh allow it after the 12 weeks (where he begins to speak of it)?

Camp Runamok said...

Halachah allows it up to the point of Yotzoh Rovo at full term IF the mother's life is in danger. The Papists, meanwhile, say the baby's birth is more important so it will not die unbaptized, even if this means near certain death for the mother!

I say, good riddance, Herr Doktor. Don't let the swinging doors hit you in the backside when you leave.

Oy, stop talking about the papists. The question is, is Dr. Nathanson doing a service by trying to stop abortions?

"...is Dr. Nathanson doing a service by trying to stop abortions?"

He is doing a service by showing what the process actually "looks" like on the sonogram. Yes, hopefully that will convince more people that the bumper sticker is right; "It's a child, not a choice." and they will reconsider elective procedures. OTOH, he has allied himself to an ideological and political strain that, if granted power, would force certain death on someone whose religion otherwise allows them to be saved because of Din Rodeif. That is simply too much for me to swallow. Al Ta'amod al...
