Dr. Alicia Thompson – Former Agnostic
Dr. Alicia Thompson wasn’t raised with any kind of religious formation, but when she went to med school to train to be an OB/GYN, she felt an increasing sense of conscience, especially when she realized she had to make a decision about whether or not to learn how to perform abortions. Those questions of conscience, as well as questions about her own self-worth, led her to become more curious about faith, and eventually have a born-again experience at a Baptist service. Still hungry for more, she kept praying and exploring, and her questions led her to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which had direct answers for so many of the questions she’d been wrestling with her whole life.
Dr. Thompson now works in Ohio as a board certified OB/GYN, supporting patients and families without referring for abortion or contraception. She is also trained in NaPro technology.
