Dr. John Bruchalski is the founder of the Tepeyac Family Center in Fairfax, Virginia which is one of the only all pro-life OB/GYN health care practices in the nation. He is a dynamic and engaging speaker whose story and style reaches people on all sides of the culture battle and shows them the value of an evidence-based approach to medicine and the value of treating the whole person.

All along his recent national tour of medical schools, students who came out to hear Dr. B’s presentation were challenged, educated, and equipped. His presentation entitled, “The Struggle Making Abortion Safe, Legal, and Rare: A bioethics & clinical discussion on barriers to access, health care reform, and evidence-based medicine,” was a huge success in bringing students out from all sides of the abortion debate.

Many students who started the evening with the stance that abortion is good healthcare left questioning this position, and several even confided after the presentation that their minds had been changed. Just to put that into perspective – for each of these med students who have decided not to refer for abortion thousands of lives will be saved. For the students who have now decided not perform abortions in their future practice that is 10,000 plus lives saved!

The MedSFL team wants to extend Dr. B our warmest thanks for graciously giving of his time and talents, sometimes driving through the night, oftentimes speaking at multiple campuses in one day, and joining us at all 27-stops on this tour. While the tour reached hundreds of med and pre-med students – thousands more need to hear Dr. B’s message.
