WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump was chosen by a pro-life organization to receive the first Dr. Bernard N. Nathanson “Courageous Witness for Life Award” for his efforts to defend the lives of the unborn.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson received the award on Dec. 8 on behalf of Trump at a gala event hosted by the Hosea Initiative, a pro-life nonprofit organization.
Terry Beatley, founder and president of Hosea Initiative, said the organization selected Trump for his “courage to be able to stand up for the right thing.”
Beatley was inspired by her 2009 interview with Dr. Bernard N. Nathanson, an American medical doctor who was once known as “The Abortion King.” Nathanson later said he made a mistake in leading the pro-abortion cause and became a prominent opponent of the procedure.
Two years before his death in 2011, the doctor told Beatley that he misled American public opinion in the 1970s about abortion, promoting it as “women’s health care.”
Beatley shared her exclusive interview with the doctor in her book “What if We’ve Been Wrong: Keeping My Promise to America’s ‘Abortion King.’”
In 1969, Nathanson co-founded the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws, now called NARAL Pro-Choice America, which advocates for abortion rights. His efforts succeeded with the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide in 1973.
