Embracing Catholic Teaching on Abortion – Dr. Alicia Thompson
Even as an agnostic, when Dr. Alicia Thompson was studying to be an OB/GYN and the opportunity arose for her to train to perform abortions, she knew she couldn’t go down that path, but she wasn’t sure why her conscience was so bothered by the idea of abortion.
Later, she would discover Catholic teaching on the sanctity of human life from womb to tomb, and it would be a major factor in her decision to enter the Catholic Church.
Dr. Thompson also discusses what she sees in regard to how the question of abortion is viewed in the medical community, and shares some thoughts for aspiring doctors and nurses who want to practice medicine according to their pro-life convictions.
