Pharmacist pleads guilty to abortion charges
For The Review)
Published: January 19, 2011

Orbin Tercero, 39, formerly of Bath, N.Y., recently pled guilty to violation of the Abortion Control Act and to tampering with evidence, according to a press release from Bradford County District Attorney Dan Barrett.

The release continues:
The abortion crime was a felony of the third degree, punishable by a sentence of up to seven years. The tampering charges are punishable by a sentence of up to two years.
Sentence will be imposed on March 9, following a pre-sentence report.

Tercero was charged by Sayre Police Officer Nathan Ross. Police charged that Tercero, a pharmacist, had applied misoprostol, a drug with abortifacient effects, on a Sayre woman who was pregnant with his child. The woman was not aware that Tercero was applying the drug.

Officer Ross was the investigating officer.

Under Crimes Code Chapter 32, the Abortion Control Act, it is a felony for a person who is not a physician to perform an abortion. The consent of the mother is not a defense.
Under the Crimes Code chapter covering Crimes Against Unborn Child, causing the death of an unborn child is a criminal homicide but there is no liability under that chapter for acts committed with the consent or cooperation of the pregnant woman.

In the Tercero case, the mother of the unborn child later married the Defendant, Orbin Tercero. She advised us that she no longer wished to cooperate with the prosecution and wanted it terminated. She could be compelled to testify or the Commonwealth could use her prior testimony, but her attitude might have an impact on the case.

The Abortion Control Act charge was a serious felony and did not require proof of the lack of the mother’s consent.

The charge under the Abortion Control Act was a serious felony and did not require a jury finding that the mother did not consent. We concluded that conviction on that felony was an appropriate resolution of the case. It will allow the court to fashion an appropriate sentence.

This press release was submitted by the Bradford County District Attorney Dan Barrett.

  2. What a disgusting double standard.

    If a woman kills the baby that’s her “right”, if a man does it then it’s “murder”?

    If a man cannot choose or decide then he should be held liable for “child” (whore) support.

  3. Ah, should NOT be held liable
