This year’s annual banquet features Dr. Wiliam Lile. Dr. Lile is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology. He is licensed to practice medicine in both Florida and Alabama and served as instructor with both the University of Florida and Florida State Medical School OB/GYN residency programs.
In 1999, Dr. Lile and a partner bought out the practice of the largest provider of abortion services in Pensacola, Florida. Along with putting an immediate stop to abortion procedures at the clinic, Lile and his partner included a clause in the contract providing that the man, who at one time led the area in abortions, must leave the region if he wanted to keep trafficking in abortion.
The abortionist left all of his tools behind. Lile and his partner immediately set out to put the tools once used for tearing apart pre-born babies to good use, starting with a simple educational talk for their local church. That was the beginning of Dr. Lile’s venture into what has become somewhat of a second career, providing education on abortion procedures for the pro-life and Christian communities through speaking appearances, as well as articles and videos, hosted online at ProLifeDoc.org. Dr. Lile’s simple, non-graphic videos have gained close to a million views combined.
Dr. Lile worked with the United States Council of Catholic Bishops to produce “God’s Miracle of Life,” a 60-minute DVD that includes bloodless demonstrations of common abortion procedures and argues for the sanctity of life on scientific, legal, and scriptural grounds.
