Dr. John Bruchalski, author of the new Ignatius Press book "Two Patients: My Conversion from Abortion to Life-Affirming Medicine" calls in to share his story. John was born and raised Catholic and became an OBGYN. Unfortunately, he bought into the culture of death for many years and performed dozens of abortions. John talks about how his conscience, which was developed by his childhood faith, began to bother him with every abortion until he finally renounced it. He talks about his conversion experience and the pressure doctors feel in his profession to perform abortions.
