Abortionist: Something besides life is owed to children
A Google Maps street view of a South Florida abortion clinic shows a pro-life protester holding a sign in front of an abortion clinic owned by a doctor once was arrested for forcing an abortion on his wife and saying that something besides life is owed to the children he kills.
The abortion clinic is the All Women’s Medical Center, located at 2100 Commercial Blvd in Ft Lauderdale, Florida.
It is operated by long time abortionist Theodor Lehrer and is an abortion facility that I have personally protested.
In 1988, this so-called “doctor” was arrested after his pregnant wife accused him of raping her and forcing an abortion on her in their home.
According to the Miami Herald, which reported the arrest at the time, Lehrer was angry when his wife refused to have sex with her because she was sick from her 11 to 14 week pregnancy.
Lehrer’s wife said that when he came home, he handcuffed her, dragged her into the bathroom and strapped her to a portable table.
She pleaded with him not to rape her so he placed a gauze pad over her mouth but removed it for fear she would suffocate, Lehrer’s wife told police.
Theoror Lehrer then had sex with her and when she thought the attack was over- she says he forced an abortion on her. A doctor at the hospital where she was taken after police were called verified that she had been pregnant and recently received an incomplete abortion.
According to the article, the sensitive abortion doc admitted that he tied his wife but said he denied the abortion.
But- this news did not stop pro-abortion groups like the National Organization for Women from supporting this abortionist.
In 1989, the Florida Board of Medicine decided not to discipline Lehrer’s medical license because they discovered that his wife had Hodgkins disease and her physician said it was unlikely that she would be able to testify against him making the probabilty of a successful prosecution of the abortionist unlikely.

In 1986, abortionist Theodor Lehrer wrote an op-ed on abortion which was published in the South Florida Medical Review, “A critical question is whether there is any point before birth,” he wrote, “at which fetal life attains a level of significance warranting legal protection because of the quality of humanness that out-balances a woman’s right to privacy over her own body,” the abortionist penned.
“As a pro-choice physician I acknowledge that the fetus is alive, but do not view it as a separate individual. Biologically the fetus is completely dependent on the woman’s body and as such is only a potential human being. The woman’s rights and life outweigh any alleged rights of the fetus because the birth and rearing of a child should be a happy and fulfilling experience. It should be something that the woman feels positive about and part of her choice for her life.”
Theodor Lehrer then promotes the eugenics ideology that it is “immoral” to bring a so-called “unwanted” child into the world because they allegedly add to suffering and should be eliminated under population control abortion policies.
“Unwanted children add to suffering for the woman, child, family and society. Something besides life is owed to children. Couldn’t it be considered immoral for parents-and even for countries-to produce more children than they can provide adequate food and education for? ”
The abortionist, who wrote at the time that a majority of Americans viewed abortion as acceptable, ended the op-ed with “the voice of the people is God’s voice.”
