One of the Groundbreaking OBGYN's on Abortions in the '70s (with Thomas Kerenyi)

Updated: Apr 21

Christine interviews Dr. Thomas Kerenyi, the former head of the OB/GYN department at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Dr. Kerenyi was one of the first doctors to perform abortions in New York City clinics in 1970, when New York State made abortion legal, before the United States Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. He had much to say about those times, and about his mentor, Alan Guttmacher, the late president of Planned Parenthood and head of Mount Sinai’s OB/GYN team, who taught Dr. Kerenyi that, “Every pregnancy should be a planned one.” Don’t miss this walk down memory lane and warning about today’s challenges that continue to promt the review of abortion laws. “Women will always get abortions,” Dr. Kerenyi states. “It’s a question of whether they have the right to do it safely.”
