March 2, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Yet another formerly pro-abortion doctor is denouncing the abortion world after a powerful conversion experience.
In recent video with the Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (APLOG) Dr. Lori Buzzetti, a gynecologist and current APLOG member, detailed her sudden change of heart after years of backing abortion ideology.
Prior to her conversion, Dr. Buzzetti “believed that the government shouldn’t have a say in what a woman did with her pregnancy,” she said. “I felt that abortion shouldn’t be used as a form of contraception, but there were certain circumstances where I felt that it was acceptable for a woman to undergo” an abortion.
Buzzetti noted that she had learned how to commit abortions at her university-based training program while in residency.
“[W]e were actually required to go through the procedure and how to learn to do an elective termination,” she said. “My mentor showed me how to do the first abortion and then he had me take his seat and he walked me through the steps of the termination, and at the end I just remember feeling very nauseated.”
“As I left, I ran into one of the staff and he told me how proud he was that I had participated in that activity, and I don't remember what I said to him, but I just remember thinking, that is nothing to be proud of,” Buzzetti said.
Despite that experience, Buzzetti still supported abortion. It was only after her own experience of losing a child that she began to recognize the personhood of the unborn.
“After I completed my residency, I entered into private practice, and soon after that, my husband and I were expecting our first child,” she related. “Early on, we were able to see our baby's heartbeat. I found myself lying on the ultrasound table looking at a screen where our baby's heart lay motionless.”
Buzzetti initially tried to ignore feelings of grief over the loss of the baby, as, “after all once a woman experienced an early pregnancy loss everything went back to normal, right?”
However, after six months, the grief didn’t go away, and she found working at her obstetrics practice increasingly difficult. “I finally confided my feelings with a close friend of mine and she told me that I was grieving the loss of our child,” Dr. Buzzetti said.
“I hadn't let myself recognize my grief because of the following thought: if life didn't begin until the baby could sustain itself outside of the womb, why was I in so much pain?” she continued.
“So my pro-choice stance started to crack,” she said. “As I continued on in my practice, I was given a new set of eyes with these revelations and I began seeing the brokenness that these terminations were causing.”
PETITION UPDATE (9/26/2020):
With President Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are closer than we have been in decades to seeing Roe vs. Wade overturned.
We now encourage the Senate to confirm Barrett as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
Judge Barrett has a fantastic track recond on sanctity of life issues, has seven children, and is a devout believer. She is the perfect remedy for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's radical pro-abortionism.

And then, please SIGN this petition telling the High Court that it's now time to end the activist Roe vs. Wade judgment. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (6/29/2020):
In a decision which has imperiled more abortion-minded women, sentenced more preborn to death, and upset pro-lifers across the nation,the United States Supreme Court decided 5-4 to strike down a Louisiana law requiring basic medical precautions in the event of abortion complications, with Chief Justice John Roberts reversing his own past decision to uphold a similar Texas law.
Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion, which held that the Louisiana law was unconstitutional for the simple fact that it was “almost word-for-word identical” to the Texas one the court already struck down in 2016.
In his concurring opinion, Chief Justice Roberts acknowledged that he had “joined the dissent in Whole Woman’s Health and continue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today however is not whether Whole Woman’s Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.”
We call on the Supreme Court to stop supporting the culture of death and overturn Roe vs Wade, now.
PETITION UPDATE (1/20/2020):
Hundreds of thousands of people will gather in Washington, D.C., this coming Friday, January 24th, for the March for Life. They will be praying for an end to Roe vs Wade, as the Supreme Court will hear a crucial, abortion-related case later this year in March. United our voices can change the course of history.

PETITION UPDATE (1/3/2020):
In advance of the Supreme Court's hearing arguments in an important abortion case later this year in March, 207 U.S. Senators and Representatives have signed amicus briefs supporting a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby an abortion center.
Some of these supporting briefs also suggest that now is the time to reconsider Roe vs Wade as sound law.
Please SIGN this petition, calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Roe vs Wade.
More than 60 million Americans have been slaughtered in their mother's wombs as a result of Roe v. Wade. This activist, unconstitutional ruling in 1973 has left countless women emotionally and psychologically scarred.
It was believed by many that Roe would be overturned in 1992 with Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Despite having eight Republican-appointed judges at the time, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold it.
Since then, major gains have been made in the fight for life, and many lives have been saved.
However, Roe v. Wade remains the law of the land, leaving millions of defenseless pre-born children vulnerable to murder.
According to a 2016 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35% of aborted babies are African American, despite black women only making up six percent of the U.S. population. 19% of aborted babies are Hispanic.
We thus again call on the court to do everything they can to end Roe vs Wade.
Now is the time for pro-lifers to join together and ensure that all of God's children have a right to life.
Roe v. Wade must come to an end!
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Buzzetti added that her suffering forced her to “realize that as obstetricians we need to stop being complacent and allowing these babies to be disregarded.”
Despite their role in facilitating life, many obstetricians and gynecologists nevertheless promote the killing of pre-born babies. A recent survey of members of the top OG-GYN association in the U.S. showed that 25 percent had committed at least one abortion in the previous year.
“When we completed our medical training, we took an oath to do no harm and in what I have seen there are two of our patients that are suffering when we allow elective [abortions],” Dr. Buzzetti said.
“It's time for us to really take a hard look at what our profession is doing and advocate for our patients health and well-being. I would invite you to join me as we hold out our hands to help the most vulnerable in our society our unborn children,” she added.
Dr. Buzzetti’s testimony is the latest in a long line of countless converted, formerly pro-abortion doctors, like Bernard Nathanson, Carol Everett, Paul Jarrett, Jr., and Anthony Levatino. Priests for Life, one of the largest Catholic pro-life ministries, runs a group, Society of Centurions, specifically for the healing of ex-abortionists.
