Brigham Opens Clandestine Washington DC Abortion Facility after Eviction from Delaware

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, DC – In the wake of the forced closure of his Delaware abortion facility due to failure to pay rent, the notorious abortionist Steven Chase Brigham has quietly opened a new abortion facility in Washington, D.C.

Ever attempting to conceal his ownership and the true nature of his shady abortion business, Brigham is calling his new facility Capital Women’s Services, located at 6323 Georgia Ave NW, Suite 210, Washington, D.C. It is not listed on Brigham’s flagship American Women’s Services website, but a call to a 202-area code number listed for Capital Women’s Services is redirected to the American Women’s Services central appointment line.

A D.C. Business License Verification search yielded no results for Capital Women’s Services, Steven Brigham, or any of his many known business entities.

The abortion business offers medication abortions up to nine weeks and surgical abortion up to 24 weeks.

A description of medication abortions offered appears to imply use of the Abortion Pill cocktail of Mifeprex and Misoprostol. However, a confidential source has informed Operation Rescue that Brigham facilities mislead women into thinking they will get abortion pills, but actually receive cheaper, more dangerous Methotrexate injections, which, according to the source, have a worrisomely high rate of incomplete abortions.

Brigham has a decades-long history of flouting the law and engaging in deceptive practices. He has lost medical licenses in six states, most recently in New Jersey, which revoked his medical license for operating an illegal bi-state abortion facility and practicing without a medical license at an illegal late-term abortion facility in Elkton, Maryland.

In Delaware, Brigham obtained a lease on a Wilmington office space only by concealing his true business of abortion from the property owner, a deceptive practice Brigham may have used to obtain his new Washington, D.C. location.

Brigham has a habit of employing incompetent misfits of dubious character to conduct abortions at his facilities, and Capital Women’s Services is no different. The abortionist there is Myron Rose, an elderly abortionist who splits his time between the D.C. office and Brigham’s Maryland medication abortion centers in Baltimore and Cheverly, conducting both surgical and medication abortions.

Rose was disciplined last year after the Maryland Board of Physicians determined he lied on his renewal application about having completed the requisite number of hours of continuing education. He was fined $2,600.

“Brigham-run abortion facilities represent the bottom of a very rotten barrel. We warn women to avoid his facilities at all costs and never believe a word that is told to them by schedulers,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “I am aware that there are workers who are trying to help women within his organization, and I urge them to quit their jobs that only enable Brigham’s abortion abuses. For Brigham, the abortion business is all about money. Women’s lives and safety take a back seat to his bank account every time.”

Operation Rescue continues to actively work to halt Brigham’s abortion abuses and shut down his exploitive abortion facilities through the complaint process.

    From my understanding of your article, Brigham is not doing abortions himself, so there is nothing the Board of Medicine in D.C. can do about this. Is this accurate?

  • A better tactic might be to approach the property management company and ask if they are aware that Capital Women’s Services is an abortion business. In the past, he has misrepresented this fact to other landlords. It may be possible to evict him. I have left a message with the company, but never received a call back.

    The man deserves to be locked up for a long time.

    Good try! I would not have known how to get in touch with the building owner. Yes, in additional to a trail of blood and murdered babies, abortionists appear to practice deceit with alacrity.

    When will the revocation of a medical and or attorney license by a state invalidate a license in EVERY state?
    This is a LOT like the wild west. The criminals and bank robbers have warrants posted for them in one state so they move to the next territory and start clean!
    This is WRONG on SO MANY levels. The wrongness is that this is an INTERSTATE matter not a intrastate matter and just like a sexual predatory there needs to be a registry for BOTH doctors and Attorneys that have had licenses REVOKED. They should NOT be able to practice at all!

    This would entirely depend upon the state and state laws as well as whether he was listed as one of the required Doctor Shareholders or as an individual holding shares.

    Bottom line, if his license was revoked in any state it needs to be revoked in EVERY state, he needs to be banned from working in the medical industry altogether as well.
