Undercover sting exposes Maryland illegal late-term abortion mill

FORESTVILLE, Md., July 12, 2012/Christian Newswire --

A seven-month undercover investigation conducted by Operation Rescue revealed scandalous details of a late-term abortion scheme involving one of the nation's most notorious abortionists that is shockingly similar to one run by disgraced abortionist Steven Chase Brigham.

Operation Rescue caught late-term abortionist James S. Pendergraft IV and his Maryland accomplice, Harold O. Alexander, red-handed operating an illicit late-term abortion business in Forestville, Maryland, even though Pendergraft is not licensed to practice there.

Beginning on November 8, 2011, Operation Rescue staff members, posing as potential late-term abortion customers, began recording a series of conversations with Pendergraft of Florida, which document a suspicious bi-state abortion business aggressively advertized on the Internet as LateTermAbortion.net.

"Documentation that Pendergraft is operating a late-term abortion operation in Maryland confirms that state as the Late-term Abortion Capital of America," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. "Pendergraft joins the likes of New Jersey's Steven Brigham and Nebraska's LeRoy Carhart, who targeted Maryland for their late-term businesses because of the state's reputation of allowing abortionists to operate without regulation or accountability, something we hope will be remedied by Maryland's new clinic regulations that are set to go into effect on July 23."

A video and a full report of Operation Rescue's findings can be viewed at OperationRescue.org.

Pendergraft offers late-term abortions in the second and third trimesters. His business uniquely provides women with "intracardiac injections" that kill the pre-born babies prior to the abortion. The women are then sent back to their home states or countries where the abortions are completed by others. The dangers of this process are shockingly high and place the lives of women at unacceptable risk.

In addition, OR caught Pendergraft contriving "mental health" justifications for the abortions. In one call, he said that stress over a boyfriend being in jail was a medical reason for a late-term abortion.

Complaints filed against Alexander have already yielded results. Alexander has been charged with violations of the Maryland Medical Practice Act, listing a number of shocking allegations that could cost him his medical license including a charge that he illegally shredded a medical record of a late-term abortion patient that was subpoenaed as a result of OR's complaint.

Pendergraft's complaint file remains open and late-term abortions dangerously continue at his Forestville clinic.

"We are urging the Maryland Board of Physicians to immediately act to protest the public from Pendergraft's dangerous late-term abortion operation in Maryland," said Newman.
