Order your copy now -- $19.95

The highly anticipated dramatic story of married abortionists!

Released on June 20th in time for the historic anniversary of the overturning of Roe vs. Wade.

There is no book like this. The dramatic story of Haywood and Noreen's life -- before and after their conversion -- is unprecedented.

Abortion gets labeled and thrown around as many things, what is left out are the people who do abortions, how they do it, and why they do it.

This book takes you into a world you've never seen and drops you off into a hope that too many in our culture do not think is possible. A must read.


What people are saying

This powerful book could single-handedly launch the next moral awakening.

Mary Eberstadt

Senior Research Fellow at the Faith & Reason Institute

Abortion supporters have long relied on abstraction to advance their bloody campaign. In The Scalpel and the Soul, doctors Haywood Robinson and Noreen Johnson offer an intimate and particular account of how the abortion industry really works. Their story is at times heart-rending, at others inspiring, and consistently illuminating. Their courage in writing is a powerful gift to the pro-life cause.

Michael Knowles

The Daily Wire

Dr. Haywood Robinson’s and Dr. Noreen Johnson’s book is a monumental gift to the cause of defending life from the womb to the tomb and beyond. We are grateful.

It's hard to walk away from this book without marveling.

Mollie Hemingway

Editor in Chief of The Federalist

The Scalpel & the Soul is not a fictional story about people pretending to be doctors. This is a real-life version of two physicians with professional medical credentials who kept their wedding vows but broke the Hippocratic oath to do no harm. Both experienced a transcendental 180-degree turn in their lives. In their quest to save children and future generations, they remained united in love and marriage until, as they had promised each other, separated by mortality. And with this book about what happened and why, their legacy with their spiritual transformation is written for all to see.

All of us are on journeys. So few are on so great a journey as Dr. Haywood Robinson and Dr. Noreen Johnson, who traveled from performing abortions to being pro-life champions. The Scalpel and the Soul reveals the story of this couple and reflects the stories of so many other medical professionals who, once confronted with the real truth about abortion, can no longer stay where they are but must journey toward the truth about life. You won't regret taking the time to go on this journey with Dr. Robinson and Dr. Johnson.

I first met Haywood and Noreen decades ago and have accompanied them on the intense road of healing. Now, in The Scalpel and the Soul, you can walk with them too. The book is not only an inspiring testimony; it is a roadmap for how our whole society can be cured of what the authors call the “cancer” of abortion. “There was nothing to do but weep,” they tell us at one point. Our culture must get to that point too, so that having wept, we too will be able to embrace the freedom and joy that they did.

National Director, Priests for Life

Dr. Robinson and I both grew up in South Central L.A. I’ve known him and his late wife, Dr. Johnson, a long time. Their testimony of how Jesus transforms a person’s life resonates soundly within my soul, as I have a similar experience.

Star Parker

Founder and President, Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE)

The Scalpel and the Soul is a testament to God’s pursuit of man. It uncovers one family’s path to God’s promise of redemption and is a must read for those whose lives seem shattered by the “choice” of abortion.

Catherine Davis

Founder and President, The Resotration Project

It happened at a pro-life fund raiser at the Rio Ballroom in Las Vegas. I was the entertainer and Dr. Haywood was the keynote speaker. When he told his conversion story, I sang afterwards with tears in my eyes. I believe this book will do that for you and even more as you travel on his and Noreen’s life-changing journey.

Leon Patillo

Singer and Evangelist

With the precision of surgeons, and the pen of the redeemed, Drs. Johnson and Robinson cut through popularized claims of postmodernism to expose a gut-wrenching reality. With unnerving first-hand accounts of detached docs who dehumanize women while terminating pregnancies, Johnson and Robinson unveil arguments for “choice,” leaving in the wake an inescapable reality. Thank God for two former abortion doctors . . . who possess an unflinching courage to speak life . . . that precious lives might be saved.
