Female pastor steps in, SBC votes out
A Christian apologist is praising the Tennessee Baptist Convention for rejecting a congregation that chose a woman to be its senior pastor.
A pro-life group in Michigan says felony convictions may have put the "trunk abortionist" out of business for good.
Michael Arthur Roth, 75, has been dubbed the "trunk abortionist" after his involvement in a 2015 car accident. After his car struck a 31-year-old man with special needs, police found in his trunk the remains of aborted babies, along with drugs and equipment that would have enabled him to perform illegal abortions out of his home. Police found additional evidence during a subsequent search of his home.
Roth has since pleaded guilty to three felony charges. Although the charges are not directly related to at-home abortions, all three stem from that suspected practice.
According to Chris Gast of Right to Life of Michigan, Roth was caught in the past doing home abortions and had previous violations.
“He took equipment and drugs out of the office of his former employer, an abortionist," Gast alleges, "to apparently provide abortions at home. And so this guy is obviously scummiest of the scum."
Barbara Listing, the president of Right to Life of Michigan, describes Roth as "an example of how dangerous sub-standard abortionists are still out there and allowed to practice."
Roth, who asked for leniency because he recently suffered a stroke, is to be sentenced December 7. The Michigan Medical Board suspended his license for a year effective last week and fined him $25,000 for unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
Gast predicts that because of Roth's age, his license suspension, and pleas to felony charges, Roth might be out of business permanently.
