Kermit Gosnell Is Not An Isolated Case As Florida Abortionist License Suspended For 5th Time Highlights

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Susan Duclos

Kermit Gosnell, the man accused of murdering living babies by severing their spinal cords once born alive and breathing after a botched abortion, where descriptions of the crimes he is charged with are brutal and heartbreaking, is not an isolated case, as the fifth suspension of James Scott Pendergraft, IV, a Florida abortionist, highlights another abortionist with a sordid history.

This is the fifth time that Pendergraft’s medical license has been
suspended by the Florida Board of Medicine. He continues to operate five
abortion clinics in Florida, primarily in the Orlando area.

The fines resulted from a 2010 case where Pendergraft was heavily fined and placed on suspension related to a 2006 botched elective 19-week abortion.

Patient S.B went to Pendergraft for the second trimester abortion on
Feb. 3, 2006. He prescribed doses of Cytotec, a drug that is known to
cause severe and unpredictable uterine contractions and sent her home
for three days to take the medication on her own. Pendergraft did not
have a valid DEA number at the time.

When S.B. returned to the clinic, he further illegally administered
doses of Cytotec, Demerol, and Phenergan. He attempted the abortion
before the patient was adequately dilated, lacerating her cervix and
sending her to the hospital where she underwent an emergency

At the hospital, staff delivered the remains of S.B.’s baby and found
that it was missing a lower limb. Efforts were made to locate the limb
in the abdominal cavity to no avail. There were no indications on the
patient’s chart. Later, it was discovered that the limb had been removed
at the clinic. This lack of documentation caused issues in providing
the patient with proper emergency care.


Pendergraft has a long history of abortion abuses. An Operation Rescue undercover investigation discovered
that he was working illegally in Maryland with another abortionist
Harold O. Alexander, to offer late-term abortions while his license was
under suspension in Florida and filed complaints. Alexander was later
disciplined for destroying patient records related to his business with
Pendergraft, closing down Pendergraft’s Maryland operation.

In 2011, Pendergraft was hit with a whopping civil medical malpractice judgment of $36,737,660.16 in
compensatory and punitive damages in a case involving a botched 20 week
abortion that resulted in the live birth of a child physically damaged
by Pendergraft’s incompetent abortion process amid what was described as
“third world conditions” with virtually no counseling.

Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue states ” Pendergraft is a prime example of how an abortionist operating outside
the law in a manner that is reminiscent of the Kermit Gosnell murder
case. He is proof that Gosnell is not an outlier, but is a snapshot of
degenerate nature of the abortion cartel in America today.” He continues “Pendergraft belongs in prison just as much as Kermit Gosnell, but the
reticence of the Board to revoke his license means he will be back to
wrecking more havoc on women. People wonder how Gosnell continues to
operate for so long, but the Pendergraft case explains it. Oversight
agencies are just too slow to revoke abortion offenders.”
