The Hand of God (book)

"The Hand of God" is an autobiographical book (ISBN 0-89526-463-3) written by Bernard N. Nathanson, M.D. on the subject of abortion. Nathanson chronicles his life from being a "perfunctory Jew" who helped found NARAL and oversaw New York City's Center for Reproductive and Sexual Health, the largest abortion clinic in the world at the time, through his conversion to the pro-life movement in the late 1970's, to the eve of his conversion to Roman Catholicism. In doing so, he describes his relationship with his father, his motives for becoming an abortionist and the act of aborting his own child, how ultrasound changed his mind, and the abortion procedure itself.
