Charleston, SC – Police arrested abortionist Gary Boyle, 62, for pointing a gun at pro-life demonstrators outside the Charleston Women’s Medical Center on Saturday, October 2, 2010. He was taken to jail and later released on a $25,000 bond.
Boyle was approached by peaceful pro-lifers who were praying and offering help to those entering the abortion clinic when Boyle pulled up and flashed his gun, which police said was loaded with 15 rounds.
Boyle is a Tennessee abortionist who flies into Charleston, South Carolina, to do abortions there. His own clinic in Bristol, Tennessee, had operated without the necessary certification for years in the 1990’s. The Health Department had tried to shut down his abortion business, but judge inexplicably ruled in 2002 that the certifications somehow violated a woman’s right to privacy.
This incident follows just a month after a man threatened pro-lifers with a gun outside an abortion mill in Albuquerque, New Mexico. That man was also arrested and charged.
“Boyle is another dangerous and arrogant abortionist that has a history of acting as if laws do not apply to him,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We stand behind our fellow pro-life activists by calling for Boyle to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law in order to send a clear message that this kind of pro-abortion violence against peaceful protesters will not be tolerated.”
