While growing up, Rosaria Butterfield became convinced that abortion was an indispensable part of “the good life” for humanity. She had learned the story of a relative with a houseful of children who had chosen to abort her last pregnancy. The woman had neither the money nor the strength to care for one more child clinging to her skirts. In Rosaria’s view, mankind (and womankind) would just have to get on as best it could while making such decisions — God was not in the picture.
College did nothing to turn Butterfield in another direction. But she was intrigued by the tale of a scientist who created life in the laboratory, and the miserable creature he produced: Dr. Frankenstein’s monster. Her testimony continued:
Like Dr. Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services for Planned Parenthood, Dr. Victor Frankenstein understood the need for intact hearts.
Like Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Dr. Victor Frankenstein believed there’s no higher calling on the human body than the donation of tissue for scientific research.
And like both doctors, one fictional and one real, I followed in their footsteps.
Like Victor and Deborah, I wanted to control nature and believed I could with enough hutzpah and smarts.
And then I met Jesus Christ.
