A Must See video for Every New Zealander to view in understanding why abortion is not an option!
Retired Southland doctor Dr Norman MacLean performed up to 200 abortions early in his career, but after a year of performing the abortions and being somewhat uneasy but cooperating with the system, he realised that this is not what he should be doing. It was not the medicine or the life giving, healing medicine that he wanted to practice, and from that day he stopped.
We interviewed Dr MacLean earlier this month, and released it yesterday. The interview was viewed more than 20,000 times in the first 24 hours.
The 17-minute interview covers the truth about the reality of abortion including late term abortions, the risks and harms of abortion to the mother, the importance of the heartbeat, foetal pain, the age of viability, and NZ's close connection to operative procedures performed on the unborn child during pregnancy.
(In 2015, Dr Norman MacLean was named a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit
in the Queens Birthday Honours for services to obstetrics and gynaecology.)
