Six strikes, you're out, for Fla. abortionist?

abortion examination roomA notorious Florida abortionist is now facing a possible final reckoning.

James Pendergraft is less valuable to the medical board in Florida because of his checkered history.

He was once caught operating a secret and illegal late-term abortion clinic, and the abortionist he was working with lost his license afterwards. But his is not a lone incident.

At one of Pendergraft’s clinics in Florida, a woman having an abortion discovered her baby being born alive, and when she could not get help from staff, she called 911, but clinic staff stopped the paramedics at the door, and the baby died.

After this tragedy, Pendergraft made history again in South Carolina.

Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger provided the details.

“He was pulled over in a traffic stop, and in his trunk all kinds of illegal drugs [were found] – like LSD, Sentinal, marijuana and some other drugs – and they also found in the back of his van bloody surgical instruments that were used to conduct home abortions,” the pro-life advocate informed.

Pendergraft performed these at a discount, and he is not licensed to practice in the state.

He is now facing a hearing before the Florida Board of Medicine.

“He'd already had his license suspended five different times in the state of Florida, which – I think – is excessive for anybody,” Sullenger noted. “It's one thing to give somebody a second chance, but five chances? And now, this is his sixth offense.”

She pointed out that if his license is not permanently revoked this time, there is something wrong with the process.

However, Sullenger is confident that the board will act positively and quickly.
