Here's a charming story.
Dr. Steven Brigham, 55, of Voorhees, N.J., lost his New Jersey medical license in 2010 after regulators discovered an arrangement under which he would begin second- and third-trimester abortions in New Jersey, and then have the patients drive themselves to Maryland the next day to complete the procedures.
In this case "begin" an abortion means killing a late-term baby in utero. But it must be okay, because Dr. Brigham is a licensed health care professional, right? Not so much.
Over two decades, Brigham’s medical licenses in at least four states have either lapsed or been taken away, amid complaints about botched late-term abortions, according to published reports.
Incredibly his lawyers say Maryland has no jurisdiction over this butcher, because the babies died in New Jersey. Not surprisingly, Brigham's New Jersey license prohibits him from performing late-term abortions, hence the drive to Maryland. Incredibly, his lawyers go on to argue that Maryland's law against fetal murder doesn't apply, because it leaves the final judgement of a baby's viability in the hands of the medical professional. So this doctor, who kills babies in one state, then has the mother drive them several hours for extraction the next day, is using his own "medical judgement" as his defense against his own lawlessness.
