Abortion Practitioners Have Murder Charges Dropped

March 6, 2012 at 8:52 pm (Abortion, Albany, Democrats, Dennis Vacco, Dr. Mark Binder, Dr. Steven Chase Brigham, Eliot Spitzer, John Meekins, Life, Murder, New York, Nicole Riley, Operation Rescue, Pro Life)

Steven Chase Brigham and Nicole Riley, two abortion practitioners charged with murder, have had their charges dismissed.  This means that babies older than eight months will continue to be murdered under their watch.

Last month, we reported on this chilling case:
The case of Dr. Steven Chase Brigham grows ever more disturbing.  Brigham has a long history of jumping from state to state in an attempt to collect as much cash as possible for the termination of not only viable fetuses, but baby’s that would almost certainly have survived because of their advanced growth and development.  The doctor has faced charges, license revocations, and clinic closures in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Florida, and New York, yet has still maintained his deadly operation simply by packing up and moving.
Mental Recession readers have already been briefed on how the Democratic political machine in Albany, New York, allowed Dr. Brigham to escape relatively unscathed, being charged only with fraud despite evidence that abortions had been performed on fetuses that exceeded 24 weeks.

Now, Brigham has not only escaped prosecution in New York thanks to a well-oiled Democrat machine, but he has also escaped prosecution in Maryland thanks to conflicted expert witnesses.

Via LifeNews:

State Prosecutor Ellis Rollins today dismissed criminal murder charges against abortion practitioners Steven Chase Brigham of New Jersey and Nicola Riley of Utah. Rollins indicated in a press release that conflicting opinions of expert witnesses made it impossible to proceed with the prosecutions.
As LifeNews has reported, Steven Chase Brigham and Nicola Irene Riley have been charged with murder related to the deaths of viable babies at an illegal secret abortion clinic that the pair operated in Elkton, Maryland. Brigham is currently in the custody at the Camden County Jail in New Jersey and Riley now faces charges of murder related to the killing of healthy, viable late-term babies at a secret late-term abortion business the two operated.
Brigham was charged with five counts of First-Degree Murder and Riley with one count of First-Degree Murder after a botched abortion at a clandestine Elkton abortion clinic alerted authorities to their bi-state late-term abortion ring. Police investigators discovered the bodies of 35 late-term babies stored in a freezer inside the clinic. Brigham is not licensed to practice in Maryland, and Riley was apparently on her second day of late-term abortion training when she perforated the woman’s uterus and pulled out her bowel. The patient required emergency surgery to save her life.

To drive home the point, here is what Brigham and Riley were involved in…

Operation Rescue, which has done a fantastic job of tracking the murderous trail left behind by Dr. Brigham, has a copy of the original indictment, which includes 5 counts of first-degree murder, and 5 counts of second-degree murder.

More chillingly, they have obtained logs of the abortions that were performed in Brigham’s Maryland clinic.  They include several abortions performed on fetuses that had developed well over 8 months, including one seen below that had been documented at 36 weeks!

Questions continue to abound regarding Brigham’s case in Albany.  If his Maryland clinic clearly shows that abortions were performed on fetuses well past 24 weeks of development – a violation of New York’s fetal homicide law – is there any question that he was doing the same in Albany? 

Why were witness accounts pertaining to the clinic essentially ignored – including victim statements, an undertaker interview claiming one fetus had developed to 8 months, and a Medical Conduct Board interview in which a nurse claimed that one case involved “a 26- to 28-week pregnancy”?

John Meekins, a former assistant attorney general who worked the case stated he “encountered political pressure against the investigation from the Albany Democratic machine, including a judge who had ties to the Colonie clinic’s landlord.”

Who were the Democrats involved in the suppression of the investigation into Dr. Brigham back in 1996?  Was the case reduced to fraud charges under former Attorney General, Dennis C. Vacco, or former Attorney General, Eliot Spitzer, who took over the case in 1998?  Who were the supervisors that Meekins claims told him to “stick with just the Medicaid fraud”?  And who was the judge that pressured Meekins to drop the investigation?

More importantly, should these political operatives alleged to have hindered the investigation, be held as accessories to murder?

The deaths of 35 fetuses in Maryland, and countless other untold deaths, may have been prevented by the Albany Democrats that Meekins is calling out. 

While we may never know the answers to these questions, the lives lost at the hands of Dr. Brigham certainly deserve an answer.

Instead, Brigham continues to get a pass, and a license to kill again.

Liberal Radio Host Glad Breitbart’s Dead, Would Pour Weed Killer on His Grave

March 6, 2012 at 5:32 pm (Andrew Breitbart, Bias by Omission, Condoleeza Rice, Culture/Society, Democrats, Double Standards, John Sylvester, Liberals, Media Bias Debate, Rebecca Kleefisch, Sly Sylvester, Wisconsin)

A few days ago, conservative author Ann Coulter summed up the left’s reaction to the death of Andrew Breitbart with this statement:  “Even in death he shows liberals in their true colors”.  With that, those true colors, the same rage and venom being spewed in Breitbart’s direction, continues.


Last week, we saw Rolling Stone publish a piece in which author Matt Taibbi lamented how happy he was for Breitbart to be gone.  We saw Slate columnist, Matt Yglesias, proclaim that “the world outlook is slightly improved” with Breitbart dead.  And then there was former editor of the New York Press, and Taibbi cohort, Jeff Koyen, mock writers defending Breitbart as “hitching yourself to a corpse”.

Continuing in that same vein of sub-standard decency is liberal radio host, John “Sly” Sylvester of WTDY in Madison, Wisconsin.  Sylvester recently aired a 20-minute segment on his radio show which was posted as a Podcast entitled, “Andrew Breitbart:  Dead (thankfully)“.

From Media Trackers (h/t Washington Free Beacon):

Last Friday, liberal Madison radio-host John “Sly” Sylvester aired an extended segment on 1670 WTDY that celebrated in no uncertain terms the death of conservative activist Andrew Breitbart. Sly posted the 20 minute podcast on his website under the title “Andrew Breitbart: DEAD (thankfully).”

While the title was simply beyond the pale, the content of the podcast is as vile as it gets. Starting at the 5:00 mark and continuing to 6:43 is a monologue by the host Sly in which he mockingly says he would pour weed-killer on Breitbart’s grave. He then compares his joy at the news of Breitbart’s death to that of Yemeni terror leader Anwar al-Awlaki’s death in September 2011.

Here is a short list of Sylvester’s most vitriolic comments towards a recently deceased husband and father of four young children:

  • “I’m gonna pour Round-Up on his grave …so there’s no chance that he ever comes back to life!  And I can kill him like the weed that he was.”
  • “I’m glad he’s dead!”
  • “To me Andrew Breitbart’s death is kinda similar to Kim Jung Il.  Kind of a similar thing.”

The podcast has since been removed from Sylvester’s site, but fortunately the folks at Media Trackers posted a screenshot, which can be seen here.

Sylvester has a history of such controversial segments, once referring to Condoleeza Rice as an “Aunt Jemima” and also accusing GOP Lieutenant Governor, and cancer survivor, Rebecca Kleefisch, of having performed “fellatio on all the talk-show hosts in Milwaukee.”


Additionally, I’ve contacted Program Director for WTDY, Rex Charger via e-mail seeking a comment, but have yet to receive a response.  Perhaps Mental recession readers would have better luck (h/t Bethany) by clicking here…
