“Saving The One” Pro-Life Conference
On behalf of West Pasco Women’s Wellness and Pregnancy Center, St. Thomas Aquinas Church, New Port Richey, is hosting a pro-life conference with noted speaker and author Terry Beatley on Saturday, May 11, 2019. In the early 1970s, Dr. Bernard Nathanson ran the largest abortion facility in the western hemisphere. In 1996 he repented and converted to Catholicism. In 2009, Dr. Nathanson, terminally ill, shared with Terry how he and Planned Parenthood duped America into accepting and legalizing abortion. Terry promised Dr. Nathanson she would teach the truth of how he deceived our nation with the lie that abortion is “women’s healthcare”.
