A pro-life activist group is pleased to see that Maryland has shut down a late-term abortion business operated by a Florida clinic owner.

Sullenger, CherylOperation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger says her organization conducted a four-month investigation of the facility, which attracted clients via Internet.

"Florida abortionist James Pendergraft was operating an illegal late-term abortion business with the help of another abortionist in Maryland named Harold O. Alexander," she details.

"What made this illegal was the fact that Pendergraft himself is not licensed to practice in the state of Maryland."

Alexander has been suspended in part for shredding medical records subpoenaed by the medical board and for "other nefarious conduct," including sexual boundary violations and prescribing Viagra to people he did not know and had not seen. The substandard abortion protocol was also an issue.

"What they would do is they would inject the heart of the baby with a poison that would stop the baby's heart, and … the procedure would take about two minutes," Sullenger explains.

"The woman would be monitored for about 15 minutes, and then she would be sent back to her home state or town, where she would expel the dead child."

Pendergraft operates several abortion clinics in Florida, where he has been jailed more than once and his medical license has been suspended four times. He is the same man who offered a $50 discount for women who chose to get an abortion on Sundays, November 2011 through May 2012.
