On February 3, 2006, Denise Crowe walked into Ferrer’s Gynecare Center abortion clinic in Severna Park, Maryland, for a second trimester dilation and evacuation abortion in her 16th week of pregnancy under the mistaken impression that an abortion would solve her problems. Ferrer was accused of failing to properly administer anesthesia or monitor her during and after the abortion. Once Crowe suffered complications, Ferrer did not adequately properly administer resuscitation. Less than two hours after her abortion began, Crowe was pronounced dead.I do hope that Crowe's family gets justice, but after all these years, I'm not holding my breath. We may have to be content with him ceasing to be an immediate danger to women and unborn children.
Her death was kept secret for four years until the Maryland State Board of Physicians filed to initiate disciplinary action against him on April 7, 2010. That is when the pro-life community activated to insure that Ferrer was brought to justice. Operation Rescue worked with Maryland pro-life groups to draw attention to the dangers Ferrer’s abortion business posed the public and call for speedy discipline and criminal charges.
“We have every reason to believe that criminal charges could soon be filed against Ferrer for his part in Crowe’s death. We will keep working until that becomes a reality and Ferrer is behind bars where he belongs,” said Newman.
On a completely unrelated note, there are two really interesting conversations going on about William Saletan's recent recommendations for pro-lifers and pro-choicers.
