40 Days for Life is holding a vigil at a Charlotte, North
Carolina, abortion clinic that received some media attention
recently for racial slurs by one of its abortionists.
Pro-lifers are checking information on what is believed to be a
botched abortion at the Preferred Woman's Health Center. Gretchen
Fitz of the Charlotte Coalition for Life tells OneNewsNow
that after some demonstrators left, an ambulance was spotted.
"Sure enough, the ambulance pulled into the Latrobe
Drive parking lot, and [the pro-lifers] stood there, took some
pictures and waited, saw the woman being carried out on a stretcher
into the ambulance, and she was taken to the hospital with their
sirens on," Fitz details
The patient was known to have been high risk for complications,
and though her identity and current condition are unknown, the
abortionist on duty that day has been identified as Ron Virmani --
the same man who was recently caught on video making racial slurs
and referring to his aborted infants as "ugly black babies."
"We have the story of him breaking the law, where a man showed
up with his wife, drove up from South Carolina to have an abortion,
and they did not require the 24-hour waiting period, which is
required by North Carolina," the 40 Days for Life spokesperson
The husband, who is willing to testify to that effect, says
he changed his mind about the abortion but was not permitted to go
to his wife to discuss it.
The same clinic ran into trouble with the Health Department in
2007 and was temporarily shut down.
