r. George Delgado — a man who has put abor-

tion reversal on the map — practices medicine

with Christ in mind. As the founder and director of

Culture of Life Family Health Care (

COLFS), a non-profit,

pro-life family medical group that offers medical care

consistent with Catholic Church teaching, he has dedi-

cated his life to providing healthcare to women in crisis

pregnancies — no matter their financial circumstances.

In May, he was a featured speaker at the

11 th Annual Divine Mercy Medicine, Bioethics, and Spirituality Conference

in Worcester, Massachusetts, sponsored by

Healthcare Professionals for Divine Mercy, an aposto- late of the Marian Fathers.

“He and his work serve as guideposts for many of us

on how to be both great medical providers — drawing

on the latest advancements in science and technology

— and faithful Catholics,” said Marie Romagnano, RN,

the founder and director of Healthcare Professionals for

Divine Mercy.

The sixth of seven children in a Catholic household,

Dr. Delgado, 53, said he recognized at an early age his

pro-life views and desire to heal others.

“I’ve always understood that innocent life is some-

thing to be treated with respect and dignity,” he said.

Dr. Delgado, a member of St. Mary’s Church in San

Diego, California, is unabashedly Catholic. His two

family planning centers’ waiting rooms in San Diego

County have statues of Mother Teresa and Our Lady
