The National Abortion Federation Honors the Memory of Dr. Barnett Slepian
On this day 10 years ago, NAF member Dr. Barnett Slepian was senselessly murdered in Amherst, NY, and we honor his memory today.
Dr. Slepian was a caring physician who devoted his life to providing quality reproductive health care to women. Tragically, he and his family paid the ultimate sacrifice at the hands of an anti-abortion extremist.
Dr. Slepian was a devoted husband, father, colleague and friend. Today, it is with great respect and sadness that we join our members and his family in remembering Dr. Slepian’s life and his many contributions to women’s reproductive health care.
