Abortion facility leased under false pretenses by abortionist Steven Brigham ordered to close

Delaware pro-life activist Moira Sheridan, reporting for Operation Rescue, says an abortion facility in Wilmington, Delaware, which was leased by abortionist Steven Chase Brigham under the guise of being a “family health” clinic operated by “three female OB-gyns,” has been ordered to close.

Judge Susan Ufberg is allowing two weeks for the Premier Ob-Gyn facility to vacate the premises after Brigham failed to pay nine months’ worth of rent — over $37,000. Premier is reportedly owned by Integrity Family Health, a company which previously owned a Philadelphia facility which was also forced to close after its affiliation with Brigham was discovered. Brigham has had his license “revoked, relinquished, or suspended” in five different states, and a 2010 police raid on his Elkton, Maryland, facility led to the discovery of 35 late-term aborted babies (one as old as 36 weeks) stored in a freezer.

Pro-lifers observed that the abortionists on staff at Premier were Eric Yahav (who just lat year assaulted and attempted to coerce his pregnant girlfriend into an abortion) and 90-year-old Albert Dworkin, whose medical license was suspended in 2013 due to his association with Philadelphia “house of horrors” abortionist Kermit Gosnell.

In 2015, this same Wilmington facility was ordered to either obtain accreditation or close. The facility opted at that time to temporarily halt its surgical abortions until 2016.

Pro-lifers say that a dentist who owns the building has been attempting to break Brigham’s lease for years, having rented the space under the impression that the office was an OB/GYN facility that did not commit abortions.
