This week there have been two reported incidents where pro-choice men waived a gun at protesters opposing abortion outside abortion clinics, resulting in only one arrest.

Bristol, Tennessee, police arrested Derrick Doss Wednesday just outside the Bristol Women’s Clinic abortion clinic after he brandished a gun at pro-life demonstrators as he walked into clinic with his girlfriend.

Protesters accuse the abortion advocate of pulling a gun on them but Doss told police he didn’t take the gun out of its holster and removed it from his vehicle because he felt threatened.

The abortion advocate has been charged him with aggravated assault.

The clinic is the same cite owned by an abortion doctor who threatened pro-lifers with a gun years ago.

Charleston Police arrested abortionist Gary Boyle after he pointed a gun at three abortion protesters near the back entrance of the Charleston’s Women’s Medical Center abortion center in 2010.

According to the police report, Boyle works at the center.

He also practiced at the Bristol Regional Women’s Center in Tennessee where this latest incident occurred.

Meanwhile, police in North Carolina have refused to arrest another man who pulled out a weapon to threaten anti-abortion protesters.

In the video below – you can see the man who was in the parking lot of the A Woman’s Choice abortion clinic in Raleigh pulling out his gun when the demonstrators spoke to him:

A group calling themselves Abolitionists against abortion said the man pulled a pistol as they offered help to him as he drove a woman to the clinic.

Protesters outside the A Woman’s Choice abortion clinic in Raleigh, North Carolina immediately called police who took 20 minutes to respond they stated.

Police let the armed pro-choice man go, protesters reported, failing to arrest him or charge him with any crimes.

Instead, they claim that days earlier police opened a criminal case on the abolitionist protester at this same location for, “having their sign touching a fence and “blocking the public right of way” with tiny fetal models laying on the grass nearby the curb.”

The video shows below shows Police Captain Corrigan of the Raleigh Police Department, telling the abolitionists that there is nothing to charge the gun brandishing pro-choice man.

The anti-abortion group said that they later observed the offender enter the abortion facility after police removed his handcuffs and let him go. Afterwards they say that police escorted the man to his car and shook his hand.

UPDATE: The Johnson City Press had more on the Bristol Tennessee incident:

    Police said Doss went to his vehicle and retrieved a handgun, which he loaded by racking the slide. Police found Doss with a handgun.

    After gathering evidence and taking witness statements, police charged him with aggravated assault. He was taken to the Sullivan County Jail.

Do Tennessee abortion clinics operate in the dark like Gosnell’s House of Horrors clinic?

Posted in Abortion Clinic Inspections with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2014 by saynsumthn

Pro-lifers in Tennessee are working to pass Amendment 1 which would require inspections of abortion clinics.

Amendment 1 would give the state legislature more power to regulate abortion in Tennessee, essentially putting the state in line with what’s allowable under federal law.

In 2012, a conversation was captured on video between a lawmaker and a Tennessee Department of Health representative which explains why the Amendment is needed.

Tennessee legislator Joey Hensley, a licensed physician, discussed the lack of abortion facility regulations with the Assistant Commissioner from the Tennessee Department of Health and her answers were stunning.

She admited that the Department of Health has no enforcement ability to require abortion clinics to report to the state.

This sounds eerily similar to what took place in Pennsylvania when Kermit Gosnell’s House of Horrors abortion clinic was allowed to operate without any state inspections for years.

After operating for years, in the early 1990’s the Pennsylvania Department of Health instituted a policy of inspecting abortion clinics only when there was a complaint.

After Gov. Tom Ridge, who supported abortion rights, was elected, the state Department of Health stopped inspecting abortion clinics.

According to a grand jury investigation, “Officials concluded that inspections would be ‘putting a barrier up to women’ seeking abortions” and decided “to leave clinics to do as they pleased.” That practice continued under Gov. Mark Schweiker and Gov. Ed Rendell. It was not until after a drug raid in February 2010 at Gosnell’s clinic that the Health Department resumed regular abortion clinic inspections.

Less than a year later, eight charges of homicide for killing seven newborns and one female patient was brought against the abortion doctor. Various additional charges were brought against members of Gosnell’s staff. He was eventually convicted and is serving time in prison.

Do Tennessee abortion clinics operate in the dark like Gosnell’s House of Horrors clinic?

In the video conversation with the Tennessee Department of Health representative, she admits to lawmaker Joey Hensley, that when it comes to abortion clinics reporting to the state there is no teeth in current law to require them to comply.

TN Amendment 1 Vid

Hensley asks the Tennessee Department of Health representative, “You require presently everyone who performs an abortion to report to the state?”

She replies, “Correct.”

Hensley asks, “How do you enforce that requirement?”

SILENCE….. Then……Her response, “I’m not exactly sure how we enforce that.”

Hensley asks, “How do you enforce that? Do you check the abortion clinics and check their records and see if they have actually reported this information?”

She replies, “No sir, it’s not quite that active from our department.”

Hensley, “So you just ask ’em to and assume?”

She says, “We let them know a couple times a year that they’re supposed to be reporting this information to the Department of Health.”

Hensley, “So that all you do? And then just- you assume that they report it?”

What she says next says it all, “It doesn’t have any teeth in the law for us to force them to report to us.”

You can watch the conversation here:

To show how dangerous abortion clinics are to women, advocates of Amendment 1 released this video which containes actual audio of a 911 call from an abortion facility.

During the call a staffer, from The Women’s Center abortion clinic, operated by Dr. Gary Boyle, directs other unidentified personnel where to find medication, and provides the following details to the 911 dispatcher.

911: “Tell me exactly what happened…”

WC Staff: “She started coughing and she quit breathing….”

911: “Is she breathing?”

WC Staff: “Uh, some”

WC Staff: “She just started having a coughing fit and maybe had quit breathing at one point.”

911: “Is her breathing completely normal?

WC Staff: “Now? No.”

911: “And is she completely alert?”

WC Staff: “No.”

911: “Is she changing color?”

WC Staff: “Yes….She just looks ashen, she’s a black woman…”

911: “Does she have any abdominal pain?”

WC Staff: “Uh, I’m sure she does, she’s in the middle of getting an abortion.”

“Tennessee requires no health inspection of abortion facilities, has no informed consent and no waiting periods for abortion. Amendment 1 does not overturn Roe vs. Wade like the amendment’s opponents would have you believe. I wish it did. However, Amendment 1 does bring Tennessee back up to a standard equal to all the surrounding states by legally providing a safer environment for women who do choose to abort their babies,” said Randy C. Davis, executive director/treasurer of the Tennessee Baptist Convention, a group of more than 3,200 cooperating Baptist churches, and an advocate of Amendment 1.

Voters in the state will cast their final decision on the amendment November 4th.

UPDATE: 3/3/2011
Charleston County Associate Chief Magistrate James B. Gosnell Jr. has sided with the prosecution, ruling that enough evidence exists for the case to advance to trial, though a date was not set. The state law he is accused of violating contends that it is “unlawful for a person to present or point at another person a loaded or unloaded firearm.” The charge against Boyle is a felony that carries up to five years in prison.

Hearing set for doctor accused of pointing gun at protesters
1/20/2011
A preliminary hearing for an abortion doctor accused of pointing a firearm at protesters outside a West Ashley clinic in October is scheduled for Thursday.

Charleston police arrested Gary Boyle, 62, of Tennessee, on charges of pointing a firearm after protesters said he brandished a handgun loaded with 15 cartridges, according to a police report. The incident allegedly occurred Oct. 2 during a scheduled vigil by an anti-abortion group.

A preliminary hearing is when a magistrate hears evidence on whether there is enough probable cause for a case to move forward. The hearing is set for 10 a.m. Thursday in front of Charleston County Associate Chief Magistrate James B. Gosnell Jr. at the Preliminary Hearing Court on Leeds Avenue.

Boyle told officers that he showed the gun because he was afraid for his and his wife’s life when three protesters approached his vehicle outside the Charleston Women’s Medical Center, the report said.

He is charged with presenting a firearm, a felony that can carry a penalty of up to five years in jail. The law reads that it’s “unlawful for a person to present or point at another person a loaded or unloaded firearm.”

Boyle, 62, has a Tennessee permit to carry the pistol, according to the police report, a state that has a reciprocal agreement with South Carolina. After his arrest, Boyle was released on $25,000 bond.

Twice a year, members of 40 Days for Life stand vigil at abortion clinics across the country to protest abortion.

Shortly after the one year anniversary of a pro-choice man gunning down and murdering a pro-life abortion protester and only weeks after a patient’s father at the abortion clinic of Curtis Boyd in New Mexico threatened pro-lifers with a gun and was arrested, another act of violence with a gun has been committed against pro-life abortion protesters.

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.

Pro-lifers continue protests after arrest of gu…, posted with vodpod

CHARLESTON, SC — A Blountville, Tennessee doctor has been charged with pointing a gun at protesters outside an abortion clinic in Charleston, South Carolina.

Local police say 62-year old Gary Boyle was released on a $25,000 bail Saturday, after they say he pointed a handgun at three abortion protesters in the clinic’s parking lot.

It was not clear whether or not Boyle was actually performing abortions at the Charleston clinic, but the investigation is ongoing.

Police: Abortion doctor pulls gun
3 protesters approached him at West Ashley clinic

BY ALLYSON BIRD
The Post and Courier
Sunday, October 3, 2010

For the past 11 days, anti-abortion demonstrators have gathered at the Charleston Women’s Medical Center in West Ashley as part of the annual “40 Days for Life” movement against abortion, each of them signing a “statement of peace” before participating.

Police say the protest met a threat Saturday morning when an out-of-state abortion doctor flashed a gun at them.

Police arrested Gary Boyle, 62, a Blountville, Tenn., physician, on charges of pointing a firearm.

Boyle drove into the parking lot of the clinic on Ashley River Road near Fuseler Road at around 8:30 a.m. When three protesters, including a 17-year-old boy, approached him, Boyle brandished a black handgun loaded with 15 rounds, according to a police report.

Boyle then stepped out of his SUV and walked into the clinic without further incident, the report says. One of the three protesters, 50-year-old John Karafa, called 911.

“We were like, ‘Well, that was a gun,’ ” Karafa said. “You can’t do that.”

Boyle appeared by video conference at a bond hearing Saturday afternoon dressed in a light yellow button-down shirt. Charleston County Magistrate Priscilla Baldwin set his bail at $25,000, which he posted later Saturday.

Whether Boyle performed abortions locally is not known. He and another physician operate the Bristol Regional Women’s Center near his Tennessee home.

A woman who came to the courtroom on Boyle’s behalf declined to speak during the proceedings and ignored requests for comment after the hearing.

More than a half-dozen anti- abortion demonstrators also attended

The incident wasn’t the doctor’s first legal snag.

He and his partner operated their clinic without a required certificate of need from the Tennessee Health Department for several years in the 1990s, and the health department tried to shut them down, according to court filings.

The dispute dragged on for years until 2002, when an appeals judge ruled that the state statute requiring the certificate had violated a woman’s right to privacy.
