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.
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.
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!
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.
