To the Editor: Dr. Anthony Levatino, a board certified obstetrician-gynecologist, during a four-year period performed more than 1,200 first and second trimester abortions.
However, shortly after his 6-year-old daughter was killed in a car accident, Dr. Levatino performed a second trimester abortion that shocked him into reality.
As he was taking an inventory of the baby’s body parts to make sure he had pulled them all out of the formerly pregnant mother, he said he suddenly couldn’t see a woman’s right to choose — he only saw someone’s dead son or daughter. Soon after that, he stopped doing all abortions.
What will it take to shock our country into reality? We are committing national suicide.
In 2017 the population of the United States was estimated to be 325,700,000.
The number of abortions in our country since 1973 is estimated at 60,070,000 (equal to 18.4% of current population).
In fact the COMBINED populations of: Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming is LESS than the number of babies who have died by abortion since 1973!
