Dr. Bernard Nathanson: Physicians Staffing Clinic Were “Deplorable”

Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who became pro-life, described the clinic he ran the following way:

“The counselors were largely young radicalized college-educated women who were unapologetically feminist and regarded the largely male physician staff as the enemy. This attitude did not make for harmonious relations and the clinic, especially as the quality of the physician staff was – in a word – deplorable, consisting of an extra ordinary variety of drunks, druggies, sadists, sexual molesters, just plain incompetents, and medical losers. At least one was a fugitive from justice, with the FBI close on his tail.”
