Pediatricians Incensed When Late-Term Abortionist Opens Clinic Next Door

By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Journalist A group of pediatricians in Sharonville, Ohio are furious about the opening of a clinic by late-term abortionist Martin Haskell next door to their practice, forcing parents and children to walk past the abortuary every time they visit their pediatricians. is reporting that Haskell's new facility shares a common driveway with Liberty Sharonville Pediatrics and forces pediatric patients and their parents to pass by the abortion clinic on their way inside. One of the pediatricians, Steve Brinn, M.D., was so upset that he wrote a letter to the editor of the Cincinnati Inquirer expressing his opposition to the abortion business. “Imagine our shock and disbelief, when we learned that an abortion clinic was opening in the building 50-feet from our front door. Why would a clinic performing abortions be so insensitive to a group practice treating children for 31 years?” he wrote. “To have a group of OB/GYN doctors terminating fetuses just outside our door, to force our mothers and their babies to drive through a common driveway, driving by the front of an abortion clinic, in order to park in our lot to have their babies cared for, is an atrocity. We are here to prevent infant diseases, and they are here to end infant lives. We may not have the legal right to get them to move but we will do anything in our power to vocalize our personal disgust with their mission.” Haskell is best known for his false claim to being the inventor of the grisly and now illegal partial birth abortion procedure. A modified version of the procedure that exploits a loophole in the Partial Birth Abortion Ban is still in use today by Haskell and other late-term abortionists. “It is shameful that Ohio has placed the profit interests of abortionists ahead of the health and safety of women," said Operation Rescue president Troy Newman. "We applaud Dr. Brinn’s brave stand in defense of children and encourage him to pursue all legal avenues to run Haskell’s abortion business out of town." © All Rights Reserved, Living His Life Abundantly®/Women of Grace®
