Abortionist and abortion clinic owner James Scott Pendergraft is under investigation. His killing places in Florida are closed and his license to practice medicine is suspended.
I have been counseling aborting women outside Pendergraft's Orlando Women's Center abortion clinic ever since it opened over 10 years ago. So many children have died at his hands and the hands of the abortionists who work for him. Randall Whitney, Harvey Roth and Emil Felski among them. Baby Rowan was delivered alive into the toilet of Pendergraft's EPOC clinic in April of 2005. Carol Howard left during her abortion procedure at Orlando Women's Center and delivered a little girl at a local hospital around Thanksgiving five years ago.
I have been reporting Pendergraft's illegal third trimester abortions for a decade.
This is truly wonderful news.
I hope to learn more in the days to come.

Florida Abortion Doctor Suspended
The state of Florida has issued an emergency suspension against Dr. James Pendergraft for allegedly performing a third-trimester abortion and illegally administered drugs.
Third trimester abortions are illegal in the state of Florida outside of a hospital.
Pendergraft refutes all of the allegations and vows to clear his name, but for now, his future as an abortion doctor is in limbo. Pendergraft's five Florida abortion clinics can no longer take new clients, nor can they perform new procedures.
Health officials said in July of 2005, Pendergraft performed an abortion on a woman seven months along in her pregnancy after hospital doctors refused.
Authorities said this isn’t the first time Pendergraft has been in trouble. In 2001, a Marion County jury convicted Pendergraft of conspiracy, mail fraud and extortion.
Pendergraft served seven months in federal prison before a U.S. circuit court of appeals overturned his conviction.
"The termination I performed was not only medically necessary; it most likely prevented her from extremely difficult and potentially life threatening surgery," Pendergraft said in a statement.
A spokesperson for Pendergraft said they expect to have these restrictions overturned and plan to file an emergency appeal.
The emergency suspension order prevents Pendergraft from practicing in Florida until the State Board of Medicine takes final action.
