Longtime abortionist Gary Boyle lives in Northeast Tennessee where he and business partner Wesley Adams, along with their wives, own and operate the Bristol Regional Women’s Center, an unlicensed abortion facility. The couples also own and operate similar abortion facilities in both Nashville and Charleston, South Carolina.
For many years Drs Boyle and Adams have considered themselves above God’s law as they have promoted and participated in the killing of thousands of unborn children while harming their vulnerable mothers and families.
The Boyles and Adams families have also placed themselves above statutory law as they continue operating facilities which do not meet the same health regulations as other outpatient clinics.
Tragically, Boyle went so far as to challenge this commonsense state law requiring that abortion facilities be licensed, insured and inspected the same as any other ambulatory surgical center in Tennessee (http://www.tsc.state.tn.us/opinions/tca/PDF/024/BoyleGC.pdf).
Relying on the deadly precedent in the Tennessee Supreme Court’s 2000 ruling which established a ‘fundamental right to abortion’ in the Tennessee Constitution, abortionist Boyle and his attorney, Thomas Jessee, won their lawsuit against the Tennessee Department of Health and, unbelievably, do not have to abide by the same health and safety laws as other surgical facilities!
According to news reports, Dr. Boyle was arrested October 2 after pointing a loaded gun at pro-life protesters participating in a peaceful vigil in front of his Charleston abortion facility. The handgun held 15 rounds and Dr. Boyle was charged by local police for having illegally pointed the weapon at peaceful protesters.The incident is similar to one documented by Nashville pro-life advocates earlier this year in which Boyle, brandishing a handgun, got out of his car to confront a pro-life supporter outside The Women’s Center.
Unfortunately, Dr. Boyle has been released on $25,000 bond and is free to continue his campaign to eliminate as many unborn children as possible for as much money as possible. But clearly Dr. Boyle has less and less peace about the gruesome practices which have financially enriched his family while leaving a poverty of heart, soul and spirit.
