Notorious abortionist’s cold call mailing to doctors: Further evidence of abortion provider shortage

One of our supporters — a family practice doctor currently working in the Chicago area — recently sent us a cold-call mailing he had received from notorious abortionists Vinod and Vijay Goyal, a husband-and-wife team who own and operate more surgical abortion clinics than anyone else in Illinois. The letter [PDF] begins: Dear Dr. ________, We realize that it can be difficult to find a truly professional medical facility to refer your patients to for pregnancy termination services. Please allow me to introduce these State Licensed, outpatient surgery centers of www.IllinoisAbortion.com. Clearly, then, the purpose of this mailing is to […]

But “The Texas gubernatorial candidate didn’t flip-flop,” Goff assured readers on Feb. 18, “she just voiced what a large percentage of Americans already think of this hot button issue.” That issue is a ban on abortion after 20 weeks, and Davis’ recently expressed support for such a ban (provided certain changes) is indeed in line with what a large percentage of Americans think. But most Americans didn’t […]

Vulgar abortion doctor: And they wonder why they get no respect

After reading Robin Marty’s piece in Think Progress the other day about abortion doctor Cheryl Chastine (pictured right), I thought I’d peruse some of Chastine’s tweets to see what she has been up to. Chastine is on the cusp of sacrificing a promising career as a legitimate ob/gyn to to take abortionist George Tiller’s place at his retooled abortion clinic in Wichita. I’ve loosely followed Chastine’s whereabouts since I took part in Pro-Life Action League’s first protest and “outing” of her at her former Oak Park, Illinois, practice last April. I say “former” because the doctors at her day job let her go due to the public […]
