Abortionist Romeo Ferrer Closes Gynecare Abortion Facility, Ending His 20-Year Reign of Terror

Contact: Jack Ames, Defend Life, 410-961-2008

BALTIMORE, Md., Sept. 24 /Christian Newswire/ -- Notorious abortionist Romeo Ferrer is closing his Severna Park, Maryland, abortion facility after a 10-year campaign from dedicated pro-life organizations and the suspension of his medical license by the Maryland Board of Physicians.

Pro-Life activists learned September 23 that the Gynecare Center is not scheduling new appointments and does not have a doctor to perform the procedure. The staff answering the phone indicated they are closing the facility.

Ferrer had recruited another Maryland doctor, Ghevont Wartanian, to continue the killing of innocent pre-born babies at his Severna Park facility after Ferrer's license was suspended for professional malfeasance.

Wartanian, who has been sued over 18 times for malpractice and negligence, is no stranger to controversy. Lawsuits blamed Wartanian for incidents ranging from the death of newborn babies to causing brain damage and a host of other medical mistakes.

It appears Wartanian, a doctor of obstetrics and gynecology, has abandoned the idea of supplementing his income by child killing. Wartanian contacted Gynecare one day after the 40-Day for Life vigil was moved to his Glen Burnie, Maryland, OB-GYN medical practice. He instructed Gynecare to cancel all of his existing appointments, and informed them he would not be returning to the facility.

"We are grateful for the news that Gynecare has closed its doors and will no longer be murdering innocent babies in their mothers' wombs. This is a great first step regarding abortionist Ferrer; we now have to continue to pressure the Maryland Board of Physicians to permanently revoke Ferrer's license," said Defend Life Director Ames.

Pro-Life activists are anxiously awaiting news whether Gynecare is closed for good or just temporarily until Ferrer can find another abortionist to continue child killing.

National pro-life leader and Maryland attorney Steve Peroutka commented, "The closing of Gynecare and the suspension of Dr. Ferrer's medical license is the culmination of a decade of hard work by numerous pro-life organizations and thousands of prayer warriors. I am grateful that Defend Life, Operation Rescue, 40 Days for Life, Maryland Right to Life, Living Hope for Life, and countless others joined me in this noble crusade to close one of the most notorious child killing facilities in our state."
