Georgia abortion clinic closes after landlord sued abortionist for fraud
MARIETTA, Georgia, March 1, 2016 (Operation Rescue) – The Alpha Gynecology and Consulting abortion clinic, which opened on Via Rica Way in Marietta, Georgia, last August, shut down as of February 28, 2016, as part of a mediation agreement with the landlord.
Cobb Pediatrics, PC, sued the abortion facility owner and abortionist, Daniel McBrayer, for fraud and breach of contract for not disclosing that his business would conduct abortions. McBrayer’s office was not licensed to do abortions at that location.
When McBrayer moved into the former pediatric office located in a predominately residential neighborhood, it upset residents of the area, prompting frequent protests.
The website for Alpha Gynecology and Consulting indicated that the facility would be closed as of February 28, 2016.
The lawsuit was just the latest of problems for McBrayer.
In 1989, McBrayer was involved in the death of abortion patient Catherine Pierce, who went into cardiac arrest while unattended after an abortion done at Atlanta Surgi-Center where McBrayer worked at the time. It was found that she was given an overdose of anesthesia, entered a coma, and died five months later.
In 2002, McBrayer was disciplined by the Georgia Board of Medical Examiners for conducting illegal second-trimester abortions in an unlicensed facility. He was fined $5,000 and placed on probation for two years.
McBrayer was arrested in 2009 during a road rage incident. After a traffic altercation, McBrayer got out of his car, walked up to the woman involved, and slapped her in the face.
A suit was filed against him in 2014 by women whose personal information and records were illegally dumped.
Last year, McBrayer was involved in yet another lawsuit filed against him by the Governor’s Ridge office complex, which resulted in him selling his office and announcing his “retirement.” But instead of retiring, he “moonlighted” at Summit Medical Association in Atlanta, Georgia.
“I put McBrayer in the same category as criminal abortionists Steven Chase Brigham andJames Scott Pendergraft. He poses a danger to the public and you never know what kind of underhanded trick he will try to pull to keep his abortion business open,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “The people of Marietta should be on alert that he will likely try to relocate to yet another office.”
