Requiescat in Pace, Dr. Bernard Nathanson

I learned through a blogpost by Dr. Ed Peters that Dr. Bernard Nathanson has died at the age of 84.  Dr. Nathanson was the abortionist who converted and was baptized into the Catholic Church.  He is probably most known for the movie, Silent Scream, in which an ultrasound video of an unborn baby, 11 weeks into gestation is aborted.  Keep in mind, it was witnessing just such an ultrasound that prompted Abbey Johnson, the former Planned Parenthood director to walk out into the arms of peaceful pro-lifers in front of her clinic.

Peters offers some very good catechesis on how we should pray for Nathanson.  You might ponder this question:  Do we need to pray for him on account of the roughly 75,000 abortions he was involved with?  Find out here.

Here he is speaking in an ad found on YouTube:

Was he the dude who had a dream about Thomas Aquinas?

Nathanson described in his first book the Gosnellesque characters legalized abortion attracted. Too bad nobody but the prolifers listened.

Pray also for my friend Holly, who is going to get an abortion.
