These two reports come from our friends at Operation Rescue:
Las Vegas, NV – Abortionist Frank Silver was evicted from his office on North Buffalo in Las Vegas, Nevada, on December 10, 2011, but pro-lifers only just discovered the reason for its closure this month when a local woman posted photos of Silver’s eviction notice on her Facebook page. The clinic was set back from the street in a business park, so when the eviction notice was posted, pro-life supporters were not immediately aware of it.
“We knew that this office had closed, but we only got news of Silver’s eviction last week,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “This eviction is just more evidence of a failing abortion industry and of an abortionist who cannot or will not follow the law and keep his contractual obligations.”
The building was sealed by authorities with an orange sticker that reads “Warning, Keep Out,” but the sticker has been broken.
Silver had once done abortions at three Las Vegas clinics. He continues to operate at one remaining location.
There are six abortion clinics left in Nevada. Five of them operate in the Las Vegas area and one is in Reno. Since 1991, over two-thirds of all surgical abortion clinics have closed across the country, according to Operation Rescue’s Project Daniel 5:25, a listing of the nation’s surgical abortion clinics named after the Biblical story of Daniel, who was able to read the handwriting on the wall and predict the fall of a wicked kingdom. Daniel told the king that God had weighed his kingdom in the balances and found it wanting, therefore its days were numbered.
“In 1991, there was an estimated 2,200 abortion clinics in the U.S. Today that number had dropped to 679, and continues to decrease by the month,” said Newman. “The closing of Silver’s clinic brings us another step closer to a final end to abortion in this nation.”
Two Delaware Abortion Mills With Gosnell/NAF Ties Won’t Reopen
Wilmington, DE – A scheduled hearing was called off yesterday after the Delaware Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline reached an undisclosed agreement with Panzy Myrie, the owner of two Delaware abortion clinics that had ties to accused murderer Kermit Gosnell.
Authorities had sought a cease and desist order against Myrie, the sole owner of two Atlantic Women’s Medical Services abortion clinics in Dover and Wilmington, who had portrayed herself as a medical doctor in clinic advertisements even though she holds no license in Delaware. Instead, Myrie plans to place the clinics up for sale and “move on.” The two clinics have been closed since March and will not reopen.
Both clinics were members of the National Abortion Federation, an association of particularly troubled abortionists and dangerous abortion clinics. The NAF suspended the clinics’ membership only after embarrassing details of abortion abuses there were reported by the news media.
Kermit Gosnell, a Pennsylvania abortionist who is being held without bond on eight murder charges, worked at Myrie’s Wilmington clinic one day per week. He allegedly began late-term abortions there and told patients to cross state lines to have their abortions completed at his “House of Horrors” mill in Philadelphia.
Two other Delaware abortionists, Albert Dworkin and Arturo Apolinario, also had their licenses suspended for not reporting Gosnell’s illegal activities and allowing him to improperly take or destroy patient medical records that contained evidence of his crimes. Dworkin’s suspension has been partially lifted, but he still faces a formal hearing at a later date.
Also postponed yesterday was a hearing on a list of violations discovered at the two Atlantic Women’s Services abortion mills. The clinics faced fines of $10,000 for the first offense and $50,000 for each offense thereafter. It is unknown if that postponement was related to the Myrie agreement.
The Grand Jury Report that recommended charges for Gosnell and eight of his workers listed Leroy Brinkley as the owner of the Atlantic Women’s Medical Services clinics instead of Myrie. Brinkley owns a troubled abortion clinic in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, that once employed Eileen O’Neill. He introduced her to Gosnell, who hired her to work at his Philadelphia clinic. She pretending to be a licensed physician, and was later arrested and charged with him. It is possible that Brinkley sold the Atlantic mills to Myrie.
“The Atlantic Women’s Services case is one of unlicensed abortionists, illegal late-term abortions, disappearing medical records, gross clinic violations, and aiding in the murder of newborns. It really does not get much worse than this,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We are grateful that the Delaware clinics will not reopen and pray the authorities will follow through with criminal charges for those responsible for the massive abortion abuses that took place there.”
