Efforts to boot a "grossly negligent" abortionist from an East Coast state continue.
Although Stephen Chase Brigham still owns abortion clinics in at least four states, his latest difficulties are centered in New Jersey. Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue has been keeping up with the case. She explains:
"Brigham is an abortionist in New Jersey who had his license revoked in 2014 for gross negligence involving 250 women who had late-term abortions in this bi-state abortion scheme that Brigham had developed in order to evade abortion laws in two states."
The pro-life spokeswoman tells OneNewsNow that Brigham would start an abortion in New Jersey and then drive the woman to Maryland – where abortion laws are more liberal – to complete the procedure. His license was revoked in New Jersey and an appeals court now has struck down his latest effort to have the license restored.
Brigham operates several abortion clinics in New Jersey, which requires an owner to have a valid medical license. To get around that requirement, he transferred ownership in 2014 – on paper only – to his medical director Vikram Kaji, who has nothing to do with managing the clinics.
"[Brigham is] not licensed, he's totally disgraced, he's well known for his deceptive and dangerous practices – and we believe that all of those clinics should be closed and he should be put out of the abortion business permanently," Sullenger argues, "because we know that he still profits from these businesses."
Brigham continues to operate abortuaries in Maryland, Virginia, and Florida as well – even though six states have revoked his medical license.
