A judge in California has denied a request to suspend abortionist Andrew Rutland's medical license.
The state medical board was "disappointed that the judge did not agree with our petition that Dr. Rutland poses an imminent threat to public safety," said spokeswoman Candis Cohen.

Cohen said the board would pursue its effort to revoke Rutland's license "as expeditiously as possible."

Arkansas-based abortionist William Harrison wrote an e-mail to 40 Days for Life participants thanking them for protesting because he thinks it will show people where they can get an abortion.
Harrison wrote an email to the organizers of the protest, saying they're more than welcome to demonstrate because it'll show their children and newcomers where to get an abortion.

“You know, we have a lot of new people in the area. And since we don't do any advertising, a lot of people don't know the services that we offer. So I am glad they're over there,” said Harrison.

And he admits he even joked around in the e-mail, telling them to look serious and to bring priests along, or else it'll deliver the wrong message.

A man in Texas is facing the death penalty after being found guilty of killing and robbing his former next door neighbor. When he admitted guilt, he claimed he needed the money to pay for an abortion.
Jurors saw surveillance videos of Estrada making purchases with Barrios' credit cards and driving her stolen Mercedes. But in an odd twist, prosecutors stifled efforts by Estrada's attorneys to let jurors see a video of the teenager confessing to police.

In the video, Estrada sobs and tell police he needed $300 for an abortion because he got someone pregnant. He went into Barrios' house with his hunting bow and one arrow, he said.

"She said, 'Who's there?'" Estrada tells police in the video. "I just turned and I fired. I hit her."

An embryonic stem cell proponent in California's legislature has introduced legislation to bring more transparency and oversight to CIRM, California's stem cell agency, whom she says "is essentially accountable to no one."


  1. OC,
    Your apparent glee over Rutland keeping his license is disturbing.

    This is a guy you called a "bad abortion doc" about a month ago.

  2. JJ my glee is not about him keeping his licence. And we don't know about that yet--maybe it will be yanked, the case is still in progress.

    My glee is over the fact that he was NOT violating the conditions.

    He may be bad but he's not as bad as you alleged.
