Thanks to LifeNews for their great reporting: Since the New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners voted to revoke Steven Chase Brigham’s last remaining medical license on October 8, 2014, the fate of his seven New Jersey abortion facilities remains uncertain.
Suspicious activity was noted at one of his American Women’s Services facility in Phillipsburg the day following news of Brigham’s license revocation. That facility continued operations with locked doors, drawn shutters, and office lights out, as if the staff did not want anyone to know it was open. Women who arrived for appointments at the clinic were forced wait in a dirty, trash-strewn entryway until staff members could quickly usher the inside, only to lock the door again behind them.
In New Jersey, only licensed providers are allowed to operate medical facilities. Now that Brigham has no valid medical license, he should have 90 days to divest himself of the abortion business or shut them down.
“It seems obvious that Brigham’s employees were acting as if they were doing something improper and trying to hide it,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “This kind of deceptive behavior and devious practices has characterized Brigham’s entire abortion career. It is worrisome that women continue to be subjected to risk at his chain of seventeen abortion facilities that remain open in at least four states. They should all be shut down immediately.” More
