Addressing Abortion Myths

Dr. Anthony Levatino

Hello Fr. Jerry ,

A popular myth from the abortion industry is that abortion is medically necessary and women are hurt by abortion bans. But former abortionist and practicing Ob-Gyn Dr. Anthony Levatino says, "You never need a late-term abortion to save a woman's life." Dr. Levatino goes on to explain,
I was faculty at the hospital for nine years, and I saw hundreds of cases of really severe pregnancy complications--cancers, heart disease, intractable diabetes out of control, toxemia of pregnancy out of control. And I saved--in those nine years--I saved hundreds of women from life-threatening delivery, either induction of labor or cesarean section, delivering the baby. And I always tell people, in all those years, the number of babies that I had to--that I was obligated to deliberately kill in the process--was zero. None.

Abortion is not medically necessary. Approximately 12,000-13,000 late-term abortions (20+ weeks gestation) take place in the U.S. each year. Research shows that late-term abortions are performed for the same reasons as early abortions -- nearly all are for elective reasons. None are necessary to save a woman's life.
