VANCOUVER, July 4, 2001 ( – A former abortionist at the center of a sexual molestation scandal in British Columbia has had his profession hidden by the media which refers to him only as a doctor. Dr. Mark Walter Stewart, is facing a dozen sex charges involving nine female patients and has been identified by pro-lifers from his home town of Campbell River, BC as an abortionist.

Reports by Global Television, the Canadian Press, and The (Nanaimo) Daily News all refer to Stewart merely as a “doctor”. John Hof, President of Campaign Life Coalition BC, told LifeSite: “If Stewart were in dentistry or psychiatry he would be identified as a dentist or a psychiatrist, however, since he is an abortionist he is only referred to as a local physician. Interesting.”

At the trial, well-known abortionist Ellen Wiebe will testify against her colleague noting that the sexual touching Stewart is accused of is not associated with medical examinations. Stewart has admitted to having sex with at least one patient in his office.
