Back in 2013 most of the nation, other than Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood, where both shocked and horrified when the “pro-choice” atrocities of Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell came to light. Gosnell operated with state complicity. Governor Tom Ridge, a “moderate” Republican, had allowed his clinic to operate without any inspections and to perform partial birth abortions in defiance of Pennsylvania law outlawing that particular form of genocide.
Now the stage for the same horror is being set in Virginia. It should not be so but under the maladministration of Clinton bagman and fixer, Terry McAuliffe who is taking a page out Obama’s playbook in ignoring the law, the replication of Gosnell’s baby chop shop is proceeding with state sanction.
In 2011, Virginia enacted a law regulating abortion clinics requiring them to operate as medical facilities rather than as chicken processing plants. But, as we’ve seen, laws are meaningless if the executive branch simply refuses to enforce them.
Enter abortionist Steven Brigham. Brigham is something of a notable incompetent even among the wildly incompetent who have been pushed into the abortion business.
The state’s physician disciplinary board tonight revoked the license of Steven C. Brigham, a controversial doctor accused of skirting state rules by starting the process of late-term abortions with five women in his South Jersey office, and ordering them to drive to his Maryland clinic where the procedure was finished.
Finding several counts of gross negligence, deception and official misconduct against him, the state Board of Medical Examiners also ordered Brigham to pay $140,000 in penalties. At a future hearing, the board will decide how much of the state’s court costs he will be ordered to pay; the tab is expected to exceed $500,000.
The board suspended Brigham’s license in 2010 after the Attorney General’s Office argued he used the two-state process to evade New Jersey’s requirement that terminating pregnancies must take place in a hospital or licensed health care facility after 14 weeks. Brigham did not have hospital privileges at the time and is not an obstetrician or a gynecologist.
