Arrested Michigan abortionist has long rap sheet
Pro-lifers in Michigan have uncovered a long rap sheet of offenses including charges of assault and domestic violence from an abortion doctor in Grand Rapids whose NAF abortion clinic describes him as having “professionalism, integrity, and superior skills.”
Thomas James Gordon performs abortions at the Heritage Clinic for Women abortion clinic in Grand Rapids, according to pro-life activist Leisa Speheger Snow. Snow who regularly sidewalk counsels outside the clinic notified pro-life investigator Lynn Mills that Gordon had not been seen at the clinic for several days. After receiving advise from Mills, Snow located the arrest information at the Kent County Sheriff website.
According to Kent County booking number 1600779, Gordon spent 4 days in jail after his arrest on January 13, 2016. Records indicate that Gordon was charged with “disorderly person/fighting jostling.”
A search on the Michigan Department of Corrections website, reveals that Gordon was also arrested in 2011. In that incident, Gordon’s offenses included domestic violence as well as “Weapons – Firearms – Possession Under the Influence.”
Records on file with Michigan’s Internet Criminal History Online website provided to Saynsumthn by local grand rapids pro-lifers shows that Gordon may have other arrests that date back to 1991. The document shows a Thomas James Gordon with same arrest record as located on the Michigan Department of Corrections website with a long rap sheet of criminal history.
In addition, it shows misdemeanor aggravated assault charges dating back to 1991. More recently, in 2015 charges against the Gordon listed on that state document include misdemeanor domestic violence, misdemeanor operating while intoxicated.

Interestingly, the Heritage Clinic for Women, which is a member of the National Abortion Federation (NAF) described Gordon this way on their website:
“Thomas J. Gordon, M.D., Gynecologist, is the current Medical Director and has served in this capacity since 1986. He possesses a strong sense of dedication, professionalism and integrity in combination with his medical knowledge and superior skills.”
Perhaps they will reconsider after this information becomes public.
