The state of Pennsylvania has shut down a late-term abortion clinic in Philadelphia run by a notorious abortion clinic owner who has lost his license in multiple states.

Pennsylvania looked the other way for decades as Kermit Gosnell killed babies in brutal abortion procedures that looked more like infanticides and ran a disgustingly dilapidated abortion clinic.

Recently, state officials were looking into another notorious abortionist, Steven Brigham, who has been such a horrible abortion doctor and abortion business owner in other states that he’s repeatedly lost his medical license, been fined, and been kicked out of states for his shoddy operations. he was kicked out once before but Brigham may be trying to slip back in through a new abortion facility in Philadelphia called the Integrity Family Health.

The facility applied for and was granted a state permit earlier this fall. According to reports, the toll free number for Brigham’s multi-state abortion business will set up appointments for patients at the new Pennsylvania center.

After a thorough investigation, pro-life Gov. Tom Corbett’s administration is shutting down the abortion facility.



“Brigham’s license to practice medicine was yanked in Pennsylvania and numerous other states. In addition, he was barred from owning or operating abortion centers in Pennsylvania,” the pro-life group Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation told LifeNews today.

“The Order to Show Cause issued by the PA Department of Health was served on the business Monday afternoon, according to state officials. Based on the order, no abortion-related services can be provided by the facility after November 29, 2013,” it said. “Published reports say Brigham once ran an abortion ring with 15 facilities in four states, including four in Pennsylvania. His Pennsylvania facilities, in Erie, Allentown, State College, and Pittsburgh, have since closed.”

Michael Ciccocioppo, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, said, “We commend Governor Corbett and his staff for taking this matter so seriously and investigating it so thoroughly. Even though officials say Brigham was not personally performing abortions at the facility, this action is good news for women and their preborn babies across the Commonwealth.”
