An abortionist from Michigan who killed thousands of babies in abortions has passed away. And his abortion business has closed as a result.
Abortionist Thomas Gordon died in August at age 74. The clinic he operated, Heritage Clinic for Women in Grand Rapids, will permanently close as a result.
That means the only place actively killing babies in surgical abortions in western Michigan is the Planned Parenthood abortion business in Kalamazoo.
Although pro-life Michiganders are excited about the news and the potential to help women and save babies from abortions, Planned Parenthood mourned the loss of the abortion center.
“This is a big loss for the Grand Rapids community and in fact, it’s already impacting patients across West Michigan,” said Planned Parenthood of Michigan’s Chief Medical Operating Officer Dr. Sarah Wallett.
In addition to thousands of babies who lost their lives by his hands, Gordon had a long rap sheet of offenses, including assault and domestic violence charges. His Michigan medical license was suspended in 2017 for not reporting his criminal convictions. He also filed for multiple bankruptcies.
“Pro-lifers spent decades on the sidewalk of Gordon’s killing center praying while working to save babies and provide help to their parents,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Countless prayers and efforts went into reaching Gordon, but he chose to continue killing to the end. May God have mercy on his soul.”
Gordon’s criminal record finally caught up with him in 2017 and he lost his license. The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) fined Gordon $10,000 and suspend his medical license pending successful completion of a rehabilitation program.
Right to Life of Michigan Barbara Listing said, “It’s about time. For decades Thomas Gordon has plied his deadly trade in downtown Grand Rapids, taking thousands and thousands of lives. It’s good when the abortion industry is finally held accountable.”
The complaint from LARA stems from Gordon’s failure to inform health regulators of his many criminal convictions.
Gordon had an arrest record in Michigan dating back to 1991, when he was convicted of aggravated assault. After an incident in November of 2011, Gordon was originally charged with felony assault with a dangerous weapon. He later pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence and possessing a weapon while under the influence. In 2015 Gordon was convicted of disorderly conduct for fighting/jostling and operating under the influence. In 2010 Gordon’s wife filed a personal protection order against him, alleging he beat her several times and put a gun to her head while she was sleeping.
Listing said, “Gordon was either never fit to practice medicine in the first place, or he should recognize that the heavy personal toll from taking thousands of lives in the womb has led him to commit violence against women outside of the womb as well.”
LARA had ordered Gordon to complete the Health Professional Recovery Program within six months, or face having to reapply for reinstatement of his medical license. If he can pay his fine and complete rehabilitation to have his license restored, Gordon faces two years of probation.
Listing said, “Gordon is not the exception in the abortion industry, but rather the rule. How could any woman ever feel safe in his operating room knowing he has put a gun to a woman’s head and has three convictions for violent crimes? How many women have been informed of his record in the past?”
