Former Abortionist Confronts Capitol Hill
He bases his case on hard personal experience:
After years of trying to get pregnant, he and his wife finally did -- about a month after they had chosen to adopt. He calls himself blessed by the fact that they now had two children, just ten months apart. One day the little boy ran across the street, and his sister ran to stop him. She was killed by a passing car.
“If you haven’t gone through that kind of tragedy, you don’t have a clue. You may think can imagine it, but trust me: You have no idea what it’s like to lose a child, in any way.”
“What do you do after a tragedy? You mourn for awhile and you try to get back into your routine. I don’t know how long after her death I had to do my first D&E abortion. I remember reaching in and literally ripping out an arm or a leg and looking at it in the clamp and I got sick…. I soldiered on and finished that abortion”.
But, according to the article, “something had changed”.
Dr. Levatino goes on to tell his story:
“For the first time in my life I really looked at that pile of goo at the side of the table, and all of a sudden I didn’t see her wonderful right to choose, and I didn’t see the $600 wad of cash I made in 15 minutes. And I couldn’t think about what a great doctor I was because I took care of her problem.“All I could see was somebody’s son or daughter.”
We pray that his powerful and simple presentation of truth might melt the hearts of those men and women charged with protecting the lives of all Americans – born and preborn.
