Dr. Joseph Randall was an abortionist who practiced for many years before leaving and becoming pro-life. The reasons why he left the abortion business were varied, but he mentioned that seeing the baby on the ultrasound affected him very deeply.
I think the greatest thing that got to us was the ultrasound. At that time, the ultrasound, or soundwave picture which was moving, called a “real-time ultrasound,” showed the baby on TV. The baby really came alive on TV and was moving. And that picture, that picture of the baby on ultrasound bothered me more than anything else… We lost two nurses. They couldn’t take looking at.
The ultrasound is a powerful tool for the pro-life movement. Pictures of prenatal children, available now to anyone who wants to see them, make it very difficult for abortion activists to lie about the development of the human beings in the womb. They also have a powerful effect for the pro-life cause. They have convinced abortion minded women to let their children live, convinced pro-choicers to become pro-life, and, in the cases we’ve seen, contributed to the conversion of abortion providers.
