These words underscore something of the visit's significance, Medvedev's first after the establishment of full diplomatic relations between the Holy See and Russia.

By Karna Swanson

NEW YORK, FEB. 21, 2011 ( Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the obstetrician and leading pro-abortion advocate who changed his views on abortion and later converted to Catholicism, died today at the age of 84.

Once a leader of the pro-abortion movement, Nathanson was a keynote speaker at the First National Conference on Abortion Laws in 1969, and that same year he was a founding member of the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws, which is now known as NARAL Pro-Choice America.
