The State of Florida is threatening to close an abortion clinic owned by a notorious late term abortion provider who was recently arrested on drug charges in another state. James Scott Pendergraft, who operates 5 abortion clinics in the state, was arrested in October of 2015 for possession of drugs after being stopped for speeding in South Carolina. As Live Action News previously reported, at the time of his arrest, Pendergraft, was also found to have in his possession surgical implements that were covered in blood and human tissue from abortions he had illegally performed throughout South Carolina. Despite having his medical license revoked at the time, Pendergraft was only charged with being in the possession of illegal narcotics.

Spartanburg County filed the criminal charges against Pendergraft and made his first court appearance in December of last year.

In January 2016, The Agency for Health Car Administration (AHCA), which licenses abortion clinics in the sunshine state, filed an action to revoke Pendergraft’s license to operate the Orlando Women’s Center abortion clinic located at Lucerne Terrace. AHCA’s complaint states that, “with his arrest and criminal charges, Mr. Pendergraft is disqualified and is no longer in compliance with Florida law.”

“It all has to do with drug charges out of South Carolina but unfortunately nothing to do with any of the other things he has done in the state,” Michele Herzog, spokesperson of Pro-life Action Ministries who side walk counsels in front of Pendergraft’s Orlando abortion facilities.

Pendergraft has had his medical license suspended several times by the state’s medical board before it was eventually revoked indefinitely. In 2011, Pendergraft lost a lawsuit after the baby survived a late term abortion attempt. The woman was awarded $36 million in damages to take care of the child who is now severely disabled.

Herzog pointed out that Pendergraft aggressively advertises his late term abortion clinics nationwide, offering women abortion discounts to get them to his door as well appointments on Sunday. But, despite his persistence, Herzog is optimistic that his abortion clinics will eventually be shut down. She said that are a number of faithful Christians are praying in front of Pendergraft’s abortion clinics and reaching out to the women he profits off of.

PRO-LIFERS PRAY OUTSIDE FLORIDA ABORTION CLINICS

All 5 Pendergraft abortion facilities are covered in prayer Herzog said noting that she organizes the outreach outside EPOC abortion clinic in Orlando where other faithful pro-lifers join her. Pro-lifer and evangelist John Barros and several others ministers outside Orlando Women’s Center (OWS), where pro-lifers have witnessed women taken from the clinic by ambulances. But, they often speak to women who change their mind and choose to keep their baby.

“Through Barros’ faithful ministry many babies are alive today,” Herzog said.

Barros responded to news that OWS might be closed by the state, telling WFTV, “God uses different things in different ways and it usually is in different ways than we could ever have imagined.

Ft Lauderdale Womens

In Ft. Lauderdale, John and Tewannah Amen as well as members of Broward County Right to Life pray and sidewalk counsel outside the Ft. Lauderdale Women’s Center. Pendergraft’s Tampa and Ocala abortion facilities are also covered with prayer and pro-life sidewalk counselors on a regular basis.

This abortion empire needs to come to an end,” Herzog said.

Pro-lifers in Florida have watched God close a number of clinics in the state including two already this year. WomanCare in Orlando and Planned Parenthood of Winter Haven closed their doors after years of prayer and hard work from the activists. Herzog said that WomanCare abortion clinic was evicted the end of January just months after she and a group of prayer warriors walked inside the clinic on Good Friday 2015 and prayed for God to close the clinic permanently. Although staff was in the building, no one knew the pro-lifers were in the waiting room until they left.

The Winter Haven Planned Parenthood, which just closed their doors, was also covered in prayer on a regular basis. Herzog said that pro-lifer Scott Newman along with members of Sidewalk Advocates for Life, who originally reported the closing, faithfully prayed and sidewalk counseled in front of that abortion facility as well.

Operation Rescue has learned that the traveling abortionist that was arrested in South Carolina as the result of a traffic stop is the notorious Florida abortionist James Scott Pendergraft IV.

pendergraft

Pendergraft operates a chain of late term abortion clinics in Florida even though his medical license has been suspended in the state.

Suspension Pendergrat

According to a report by Operation Rescue at the time of Pendergraft’s arrest on October 5, 2015, he had in his possession surgical implements that were covered in blood and human tissue from abortions he had illegally performed throughout South Carolina.

He was also in the possession of illegal narcotics.

His illegal abortion operation was described as a “mobile abortion clinic.”

Pendergraft, 58, was charged with four drug-related offenses, but remains under criminal investigation for practicing medicine without a license.

Pendergraft-Booking-Info-Spartanburg-Co

Operation Rescue also learned that his accomplice, described by Spartanburg Co. Sheriff Chuck Wright as Pendergraft’s “wife,” is Angela Jackson, 55, of Cary North Carolina.

Jackson was charged with intent to sell marijuana out of the back of Pendergraft’s vehicle.

Jackson-Booking-info

Pro-lifers in Florida have been trying for years to stop Pendergraft from operating in the state. They say this news is an answer to prayer.

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright announced at a press conference on Friday that his deputies arrested an man and his wife, who were operating a mobile abortion clinic out of their vehicle. The unlicensed abortionist was conducting abortions on women up and down the State of South Carolina. The arrests were made as the result of a multi-jurisdictional traffic sweep called Operation Rolling Thunder.

We got a guy and a girl early in the week that was a traveling abortionist. He traveled around the state of South Carolina without a medical license, with drugs and with medical tools, performing in-home abortions,” Wright said. “So basically we got an illegal baby killer.”

Late term abortion clinic sends spam to pro-life blog

Posted in Abortion Clinics, Abortion Coupon, Florida Abortion Clinics, Pendergraft with tags , , , , , , , , on October 6, 2014 by saynsumthn

For months now, this blog has been spammed by a late term Florida abortion clinic.

The clinic is founded by an abortionist with an abysmal record toward the care for the women he allegedy serves. His name is James Pendergraft.

PendergraftJune2013clinicseizure

Last year, Pendergraft lost a $36 million lawsuit and because he had not made any payments to the woman he injured, his office equipment was seized. But within weeks, the abortionist was up and running and in business yet again.

COrp OWS

In 2012, Operation Rescue caught the late-term abortionist and his Maryland accomplice, Harold O. Alexander, red-handed operating an illicit late-term abortion mill in Forestville, MD.

According to the Forerunner Blog, Pendergraft has lost his medical license five times in the state of Florida:

The clinic he operates is the Orlando Womens Center. The late term, abortion center advertises heavily by posting coupons and spam ads online, as well as uploading a ton of youtube videos for “Cheap, Affordable, Late Term and Second Trimester Abortions!” Which I have blogged about here.

So, I was not that surprised when I started seeing spam from the abortion clinic in my comments section here. At first, it was annoying and up until recent, I have been deleting the spam.

It looks to me like the spammer the abortion clinic is using is phishing the internet for any mention of abortion and a doorway to get their links on that website.

I have repeatedly marked the unapproved comments as spam- and – the abortion clinic continues to send them to my blog so I have decided to publicize some of what I received here.

In July of 2014, under the rouse of “praising” my work – these abortion clinic spamming goons sent a link to their youtube ads for the late term abortion clinics.

The link for the above spam left on my blog goes to this site:

I have no idea why this abortion clinic is spamming a blog that both exposes them and opposes abortion.

I can only assume that they are spamming a ton of blogs in an effort to get their clinic out to anyone who they can so they can bring in more women for profit ! What else could it be?

I want to warn other pro-life bloggers to be on the lookout for this baby killer’s tricks…it just shows you how unprofessional and self serving the abortion industry really is.

According to the Forerunner Blog, Pendergraft has lost his medical license five times in the state of Florida:

The most recent suspension stems from unpaid fines going back to 2006. A Florida Department of Health suspension order filed on Friday, April 19, 2013 reads in part:

Suspension Language – Respondent’s Florida medical license shall be indefinitely suspended until such time as Respondent complies with the following outstanding terms in the Final Order (DOH-10-0208-FF-MQA) issued in Case Number 2006-05930:

A. Respondent must pay the outstanding a fine in the amount of nineteen thousand ($19,000.00) dollars;

B. Respondent must pay costs in the amount of one-hundred two thousand three hundred and twenty-one cents ($102,303.22)….

Addresses – Respondent must keep current residence and practice addresses on file with the Board. Respondent shall notify the Board within ten (10) days of any changes of said addresses.

Pendergraft’s first three suspensions were the result of evidence that he did illegal third trimester abortions in 2004 and 2005. These suspensions were imposed in 2006, 2007 and 2009. The fourth suspension was imposed in 2010 on evidence that Pendergraft

Allowed a woman employee to administer narcotics to patients although she had no license to do so;
Knew she abused drugs but gave her “free reign” to order drugs under his name;
Prescribed steroids for the woman without medical justification.

Pendergraft’s license then came up for review on April 24th, 2012. The complaint stated that Pendergraft still owed a fine of $121,303.22 from the time of the previous suspension of his license in 2010. As a result of a pledge to pay his fines, James Pendergraft’s medical license status was changed from “suspended” to “probation.” This meant he could operate under the supervision of another doctor. Then in February 2013, the state board suspended Pendergraft one more time, this time “indefinitely” for failure to pay.

As far back as 1999, a Florida Agency for Health Care Administration report noted the following incidents of babies that had been born alive at several of Pendergraft’s abortion clinics:

Interview with the physician revealed there was an incident … where a patient allegedly went out to get some lunch after starting the procedure, got lost, delivered a viable fetus in the car, and patient and fetus were sent immediately to the hospital. Baby lived 2 days. Policy changed, patients no longer leave after getting medication…. Physician also stated that sometimes an 18 week old fetus may twitter but this is not considered “viable.”

On April 2nd, 2006, 911 Emergency received a frantic call from a woman claiming her friend had given birth to a live baby at Pendergraft’s EPOC clinic in Orlando. Harry Perper was the abortionist on duty. When the mother alerted medical staff that her baby was born alive, the staff told her to leave the baby in the toilet. An autopsy report and photos revealed a perfectly formed baby boy who died from premature birth, confirming part of the mother’s story.

Abortion clinic fraudulently uses image of actress Kate Hudson

Posted in Abortion Ads, Abortion Advertisement, Abortion Coupon, Abortionist, Pendergraft with tags , , , , , , on August 20, 2013 by saynsumthn

KateHudsoninAdA controversial abortion clinic in Orlando is now using the picture of a Hollywood celebrity to advertise for an abortion coupon.

Just seconds into a YouTube video that advertises coupons for the Orlando Women’s Center, actress Kate Hudson’s picture appears right before an image of a doctor and an offer for $100 off.

The commercial shows a series of pictures of smiling women along with a web link to the abortion coupon, but Hudson appears to be the only celebrity featured in the ad.

In an email to Local 6, Hudson’s publicist said the actress did not approve the commercial.

“I can confirm that this use is unauthorized and we had no knowledge of it,” said Brad Cafarelli, Hudson’s rep.

We could not locate the precise Video that the Orlando station used, but we did locate another vid used by Orlando Womens Center abortionist James Pendergraft:

Now the abortion clinic has posted a YOUTUBE- which advertises $100 off an abortion:

So after several run ins with the Medical Board over his complete disregard for unborn children and women- Pendergraft remains in business. Abortion is very lucrative as is obvious from the many ways that Pendergraft advertises online:

Why all the effort to advertise, to keep running abortion clinics and stay in business after several run-ins with the state – the only explanation is that Late Term Abortion is BIG BUCKS for James Pendergraft !!! What do you think? Leave a comment –
