A Michigan abortion doctor may be facing possible sanctions after failing to notify the state about several arrests and criminal convictions in violation of state law. Thomas James Gordon performs abortions at Heritage Clinic for Women, a Grand Rapids National Abortion Federation clinic which has failed to publicly distance themselves from Gordon despite Live Action News documenting his criminal history in January. Now, the state’s medical licensing board has filed a formal complaint against Gordon for failing to notify them of the convictions.

Thomas Gordon

According to a search of Michigan Corporations conducted by Live Action News, Gordon is the Registered Agent for the Heritage Clinic for Women abortion clinic. His offenses included domestic violence as well as “Weapons – Firearms – Possession Under the Influence” among other offenses. In addition, Gordon has history of domestic violence directed at his wife which should cause concern for female patients under his care.

WZZM13, a local Grand Rapids news outlet, has reported that Gordon’s failure to report the arrests and convictions could affect his ability to practice:

“Documents we obtained show state experts are concerned the doctor’s past criminal cases could affect his ability to practice in a “safe and competent manner”.

Pro-life researcher, Lynn Mills spoke with Live Action News about the case and said that local activists who regularly pray and counsel outside Gordon’s abortion facility began noticing his absences in January and became suspicious. She provided a copy of the complaint filed by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs against Gordon in early March for failing to notify the state within 30 days of a criminal conviction. Michigan state law requires that, “A licensee or registrant shall notify the department of any criminal conviction within 30 days after the date of the conviction. Failure of a licensee or registrant to notify the department under this subsection shall result in administrative action under sections 16221 and 16226.”

April of 1992– Convicted of “Aggravated Assault” (suspended sentence – 90 days in jail a fine and 18 months probation.)

Even more disturbing, WZZM13 dug into the Gordon’s violent history further and discovered that he had allegedly threatened his wife with a pistol. They reported that “In 2010, Gordon’s wife Shelly filed a Personal Protection Order against him. She wrote quote:”Thomas has beat (me) several times in the past 3 years, he has even put his 45 mm pistol to my head when I was sleeping.”

A copy of the order provided to Live Action News from local activists shows that while on a trip to Jamaica, Gordon’s wife alleges that a “layover and wrong transport made him snap.” She describes his anger against her and the hotel front desk clerk. After being escorted to her room, she described how Gordon came back to the room where she was already sleep when, according to the abortion doctor’s wife, he “started hitting me in face, body said he doesn’t like me – hit me and damage my nose…”

Gordon’s wife Shelly writes that she defended herself and told Gordon he had a problem and she accused him of “probably beat his first wife” adding that she had filed for divorce.

A copy of a Kent County Sheriff Department Affidavit of Probable Cause dated November 6, 2011 provided to Live Action News paints a picture of how unstable and violent this Michigan abortionist is, reading :

    Suspect Thomas Gordon, did commit a felonious assault upon his wife, Shelly Gordon. The Gordons were involved in a verbal argument, in the finished basement of their residence. Thomas had a Kimber Combat Carry, semi auto pistol, chambered in .45 ACP, resting on the counter of a kitchenette area. The victim, Shelly Gordon, stated that she was going to go upstairs. Thomas stated “I’ll shoot you and anyone that fucks with me.” He then ran over to the counter top, picked up the pistol, racked the slide and pointed it at Shelly. Shelly then grabbed hold of the pistol and Thomas’ hand. She stated “you are not going to shoot me,” as she tried to pry the pistol from his grasp. They continued the physical struggle and Thomas fell against the wall and then on to the floor. Shelly was able to grab the gun and run upstairs. She secreted the gun under a pillow, on the upstairs couch. Shelly then ran outside and hid, where she called 911. Thomas did submit to a breathalyzer, upon arrival at the jail. This yielded the BAC results of .21. It should be noted that the magazine for the pistol, although loaded with six rounds, was not in the grip of the pistol. Shelly stated that she believed the firearm was loaded.

The affidavit also states that the abortionist told police officers called to the scene of the incident that he is a doctor who makes $1,000,000 per year and “drinks alcohol every day.”

Despite his violent history, the Heritage Clinic for Women website describes Gordon as possessing, “a strong sense of dedication, professionalism and integrity.” Live Action News called Heritage Clinic for Women and has verified that Gordon is still performing abortions at the center. A June 2, 2016 search of “abortion providers” listed at the NAF website reveals that the National Abortion Federation continues to refer to Heritage despite Gordon’s criminal record.

In an effort to persuade authorities to take immediate action against Gordon’s ability to practice medicine, local pro-lifers have set up an online petition asking The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) to act quickly to summarily suspend Gordon’s license. They are also asking concerned pro-lifers to please call Shelly Edgerton who is the Director of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs for the state as well as Michigan Attorney General, Bill Schuette to voice their concern about the abortionist as well. The petition along with additional contact information can be found here. According to WZZM13, Gordon has until June 6 to respond to the complaint filed against him by the state.

Man arrested after pointing gun at abortion activist outside Planned Parenthood

Posted in AHA, Guns at abortion clinics, Pro-choice People, pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2015 by saynsumthn

Chicago abolitionist Troy Buccini stands against abortion regularly outside the Planned Parenthood Aurora IL.

He calls out to men and women who come to the abortion business to kill their unborn children.

Over the weekend, 21 year-old Clifton Ratney, from Indiana who was escorting a woman into the Illinois Planned Parenthood pointed a gun at Buccini while he called out for the life of the child.

My friends don’t bring her before an assassin,” he said as he called out to a man accompanying a women into Planned Parenthood.

“Come on down here sir. Come on, father to father sir,” he said.

It was then that Buccini noticed that Ratney pulled out a gun – pointed it at him – and then walked into the abortion clinic.

That did not stop Buccini who kept on pleading that they turn around.

Buccini said that after the incident one of the pro-lifers called the police and the man was arrested.

He also said that, as a result, the unborn baby was spared for that day at least.

The Chicago Tribune later reported the Ratney was charged with misdemeanor unlawful use of a weapon and disorderly conduct after locating the loaded gun in his waistband, along with 15 additional rounds of ammunition. The pro-choice man showed police a conceal and carry license which was not good for the state of Illinois where he used the weapon to threaten the activists.

Ratney was escorted out of the Planned Parenthood waiting room and arrested on scene. Despite the seriousness of the threat, Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office has denied any felony charges against the Planned Parenthood supporter.

There have been 2 other gun incidents outside abortion clinics in July where abolitionist and pro-life sidewalk counselors reaching out to women seeking abortion were threatened.

Bristol, Tennessee, police arrested Derrick Doss outside the Bristol Women’s Clinic abortion clinic in Tennessee after he brandished a gun at pro-life demonstrators as he walked into clinic with his girlfriend, while, police in North Carolina refused to arrest another man who pulled out a weapon to threaten abortion abolitionists there.

Have you ever noticed how the media fails to repeat these stories of pro-choicers using guns to intimidate and even murder pro-lifers?????

Sometimes the ones pointing guns are the ABORTIONISTS:

Doctor charged with pointing handgun at abortion protesters
By George Jackson

A doctor was charged with a felony in South Carolina on Saturday.

Charleston Police said Dr. Gary Boyle, 62 of Blountville, pointed a gun at three abortion protesters near the back entrance of the Charleston’s Women’s Medical Center.
According to the police report, Boyle works at the center. He also practices medicine at the Bristol Regional Women’s Center in Tennessee.

Both offices are the focus of a 40-day protest by anti-abortion activists.

A national organization called ’40 Days for Life’ started their vigil outside Boyle’s Bristol office on September 22nd. Organizer Linda Edwards said she plans to continue through the end of October.

“[The Charleston group] were doing what they were supposed to be doing in a peaceful vigil,” Edwards said. “That is, praying peacefully without interaction with doctors and nurses who are part of an abortion clinic.”

The police report lists three victims: 50-year-old John Karafa, 60-year-old Kenneth Ray Collins, and a male juvenile.

“[The victims] stated they were standing at the back entrance of the building, waiting to hand out their religious literature,” police said.
“The victims advise that the offender pointed a firearm at them from inside his vehicle,” police said.

Boyle could not be reached for comment Monday. His office declined comment.

Boyle told police he drew the gun because he felt threatened.

“The offender admitted that he presented the firearm because he was in fear of his and his wife’s life,” police said.

Collins disagreed with Boyle’s version of their encounter. He said Boyle approached the group of protestors.

“I offered literature to the approaching car,” Collins said. “Then I saw that I was looking down the barrel of a handgun,” he said.

Collins said the protest group was standing on the public right of way. Boyle could have called the office security guard if he felt threatened, he said.
“The guard sometimes stands and talks with us,” Collins said.

Boyle was charged with ‘pointing a firearm at any person,’ a felony in South Carolina. It carries a maximum prison term of five years.

Boyle is scheduled to appear in Charleston County Criminal Court on December 17th, 2010. He is free on a $25,000 bond.

Cops called for abortion clinic threat Pro-life activist says man threatened to shoot

Updated: Tuesday, 31 Aug 2010, 10:13 PM MDT

ALBUQUERQUE, NM {KRQE} – The father of a teenage girl who was on her way into an Albuquerque abortion clinic, is accused of threatening to shoot a protester.

A protester standing just outside the clinic said the man lost it and said he was going to put a bullet through her heart.

These pictures were snapped by Operation Rescue, outside Southwestern Women’s Options on Lomas near I-25.

It’s one of the most controversial abortion clinics in the country, because it’s one of the few that performs late-term abortions

A man, his wife and their 16 year old daughter pulled into the clinic for the teen’s appointment Saturday.

Protesters claim the girl was interested in hearing about alternatives to abortion.

Bud Shaver with Operation Rescue was there and told News 13 what he saw, “(The girl) took the information that she was offering but the gentlemen lashed out.”

The female protester said the girl’s father yelled he didn’t believe in god and flipped her off.

The family went inside, but the man came back out.

The protester claims that’s when the father told her not to speak to his daughter again or he would quote “Put a bullet in her heart”.

“He kind of lifted up his shirt and showed something that was attached to his belt,” Shaver said.

The woman called the cops.

“They had all their guns drawn and they were kind of single file approaching the clinic and they had all of us, out on the street, kind of move behind the wall, they said we were in the kill zone,” Shaver said.

The father told police he was stressed over his daughter’s abortion and got upset when the protesters started yelling his family would burn in hell.

He said he did tell the woman not to talk to his daughter, but he denied making a threat.

Police did find a magazine clip full of bullets on him, but no gun. The man did have several guns locked inside his car.

Police confiscated them, citing the volatility of the situation.

Police said the case has been forwarded to the district attorney to see if the father should be charged with anything.

We tried to get a hold of the owner of the clinic Doctor Curtis Boyd for comment on what happened, he did not get back to us.

But, Operation Rescue reports that the Shooting Threat Raises Question Of Coerced Abortion

Additional information has come out concerning the incident on August 25, 2010, where a man threatened to shoot two pro-life women outside Curtis Boyd’s late-term abortion mill in Albuquerque, New Mexico. That information raises questions of coerced and/or forced abortions there.

The man, identified in police reports as Hal Cox of Arizona, brought his 16-year old daughter to Boyd’s Southwestern Women’s Options for an abortion and became upset when his wife and daughter voluntarily approached two sidewalk counselors that spoke with them about abortion alternatives. He flashed what appeared to be a gun and threatened to shoot them if they said anything else to his daughter.

Police were called to the scene where they discovered that Cox was in immediate possession of a magazine filled with bullets. They also discovered a number of firearms in the trunk of his vehicle. Police confiscated the weapons.

“This raises an important question of whether or not this young lady held any fear for her armed father, and whether she was seeking an abortion of her own free will,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We know that there is a silent epidemic of coerced abortions and even forced abortions going on in this country.”

“Pregnancy is a vulnerable time for women,” said Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Policy Advisor for Operation Rescue. “After over two decades of working with abortion-bound women, it has been my experience that a high percentage of them feel like they have no other choice than to abort because of pressure from family and even because of fear of domestic violence.”

Two cases in point are the dramatic stories of Michelle Armesto-Berg from Kansas and Caitlin Bruce from Michigan.

Armesto-Berg was coerced into an abortion she did not want out of fear that her family would disown her. Her abortion was started before the clinic staff obtained written consent. She gave stunning testimony of her ordeal before a Kansas Legislative Committee in 2007.

Bruce filed a lawsuit against abortionist Alberto Hodari for a forced abortion she endured in 2008. She says she withdrew her consent for an abortion after viewing an ultrasound image of her pre-born baby. According to Bruce, Hodari ordered a male clinic worker to hold her down while Hodari forced the abortion on her. Her mouth was covered to muffle her screams.

These stories are just the tip of a very large iceberg. More needs to be done to insure that vulnerable women do not have to endure abortions they do not want.

Boyd’s clinic is of particular concern because women come to it from all over the country for late-term abortions that are not legal or available in their home states. Studies show that domestic violence against women actually increases in their last four months of pregnancy, a time during which Boyd particularly solicits women for abortions.

“We hope that the police thoroughly investigate the Cox case to determine if the young woman was coerced or aborted out of fear for her safety. But unfortunately, in New Mexico abortion laws are so permissive that there is likely no statute that could punish a person for forcing or coercing an abortion on an unwilling woman,” said Sullenger. “This lax attitude toward abortion coercion and accompanying domestic violence places women and their wanted babies in grave risk. It is really outrageous that more hasn’t already been done to protect women at this vulnerable time of their lives.”

As for Cox, his case has been referred to the district attorney, who will evaluate it to see if charges should be filed.

“If they let this man walk away without charges this will send the wrong message to bullies who want to threaten peaceful pro-lifers and coerce young girls into unwanted abortions, as we suspect may have been the case in this instance,” said Newman. “They need to make an example out of Mr. Cox in order to stem the violence inside and outside the abortion clinic.”

Pro-Choice Violence: Threatening with a Gun

Another incident of threatened violence against a pro-lifer.

Outside a Phoenix Planned Parenthood abortion center on Wednesday an Arizona man pulled a gun on a pro-life advocate who handed him a brochure with information on alternatives to abortion.

Phoenix police Lt. Larry T. Jacobs said in a television interview that the man had just dropped off his girlfriend for an abortion at Planned Parenthood – the billion-dollar abortion business – when the pro-life advocate handed the man the brochure. The man pulled out a gun and pointed it at the woman for a few seconds, then got in his vehicle and drove off.

The pro-lifer wrote down the gunman’s license plate and report it to authorities. Police eventually arrested the alleged defendant.

The woman says she was only trying to help the man consider other options.

NOTE- NEVER FORGET the shooting death of pro-life activist James Pouillon- murdered for holding a pro-life sign ! Pouillon was gunned down in cold blood by a pro-choice activist angry at his message

In September of 2009, a pro-life activist was gunned down on a public sidewalk by a violent pro-choicer who hated his message. James Pouillon was standing in front of a Michigan High School, where he had stood peacefully many times before, carrying a pro-life sign. The Shiawassee County Prosecutor’s office has charged pro-choicer, Harlan J. Drake, 33, of Owosso with two counts of first-degree, premeditated murder.

Pouillon’s sign depicted a picture of a baby and simply said “LIFE” and for this he was brutally killed.
