Michigan “Trunk Abortionist” Pleads No Contest to Three Felony Counts of Larceny

By Cheryl Sullenger

Detroit, MI – Abortionist Michael Arthur Roth, 75, appeared in a McComb County Circuit Court today and entered a plea of “No Contest” to three felony counts of Larceny in a Building.

The no contest pleas constitute felony convictions.

Activist Lynn Mills of Pro-Life Michigan was in the court room during the hearing and told Operation Rescue that Roth made a plea for leniency because he recently suffered a stroke.

Roth was criminally charged as the result of a car accident in 2015, when police discovered stolen drugs, abortion equipment, and aborted baby remains in his trunk. Roth had been secretly carrying out hazardous home abortions. He and an accomplice had stolen the instruments and drugs from an abortion facility owned by Angel Ojeda, who had employed Roth.

The incident earned him a nickname as the “Trunk Abortionist,” because he operated his illicit home abortion business out of the trunk of his car.

Roth’s Michigan medical license was suspended for one year, effective on October 13, 2017. He was also fined $25,000 for the “unlawful possession of a controlled substance” by the Michigan Medical Board.

Roth is due to be sentenced on December 7, 2017.
