Veteran abortionist with a sordid history dies at 75

GRAND RAPIDS, MI, December 7, 2012, (Operation Rescue) — Operation Rescue has just received word that abortionist Dr. Edwin C. Weathington, age 75, passed away on October 7, 2012, after a struggle with pancreatic cancer.

After obtaining his Michigan license in 1980, Dr. Weathington performed abortions at Women’s Medical Center in Grand Rapids until the facility closed its doors in January 2012.

Typical of abortionists, Dr. Weathington demonstrated improper behavior both in professional relationships and business practice.

According to state documents, the Michigan Bureau of Health Services issued a $5,000 fine and six-month suspension of Dr. Weathington’s medical license on June 16, 2000, after finding that Dr. Weathington had engaged in illicit relations with patients, a violation that is unfortunately more common among abortionists that is commonly known. He was later placed on probation in August 2002.

In 2011, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) found Dr. Worthington’s clinic out of compliance with federal regulations regarding clinical laboratories. When the clinic failed to submit an acceptable plan of correction, the CMS instituted a daily $1,500 civil penalty fee against Women’s Medical Center and Dr. Edwin Clark Worthington on Nov 15, 2011.

Eventually, the civil penalty, combined with Dr. Weathington’s poor health, caused Women’s Medical Center to shut its doors in January 2012.

Dr. Edwin Clark Weathington had a many talents and opportunities in life. After serving in the Armed Forces, Weathington married in September 1967, and went on to complete his B.S. in microbiology at Ohio State University, and medical school at Toledo in 1976.

Rather than serve in a life-saving field of medicine or research, Dr. Weathington chose to provide abortions. Along with it, he chose the inevitable path of depravity that such a career entails.

Dr. Weathington leaves behind his wife, two children, and eight grandchildren. Thankfully, none of them are continuing Weathington’s sad legacy as an abortionist.

We would encourage all our readers to pray for the salvation of Dr. Weathington’s family, and the women that he affected during his abortion career. Just as saving babies from physical death is important, so also is saving souls from eternal death.

As we see from the closure of Women’s Medical Center, we must continue to hold abortionists accountable for legal violations and professional misconduct, and hold state and federal agencies accountable for enforcing legal requirements and penalties.

Most importantly, however, we must hold ourselves accountable for our words and actions, and seek always to advance the cause of life.

I don’t. He’s in for a long day of rough questions at the pearly gates.

Yeah, he’s probably thinking pancreatic cancer is less painful than what he might endure for eternity. /chilling though

Eternity: Smoking or non-smoking? Everyone gets to choose. He made his choice.

“after finding that Dr. Weathington had engaged in illicit relations with patients, a violation that is unfortunately more common among abortionists that is commonly known. “

So he pressured and bullied the already traumatized women he provided his ‘care’ to into sexual relationships?
And he was reinstated to his position?
How many women did he prey on in that fashion?

What a d-bag.

What? Did he go back to school and get his MD just so he could kill babies?

There are those of us who have a world view that we are ultimately accountable to our maker - for every single thing we think, say, or do. We behave accordingly.

There are those whose world view is that this life is all there is. They behave accordingly.

The “doctor” will be surprised when he finds out that his world view was wrong. And worse, he will not be able to do anything about it.

Each of us has to make his world view decision in this lifetime. You do not get a second chance at the Pearly Gates.

SkyDancer, you said: Hope he gets to meet all those babies he aborted.

Unless he truly repented and accepted Jesus Christ as the son of God and his savior, he will never see another baby again. But he may run across some of the women he aborted.

At least Jack Kevorkian only killed people who asked for it.

I'm think more on the Last Judgment. Everybody gets judged then.

So that is why we are having a warm snap here in Georgia.

Hell just got a little more fuel delivered.

All those babies are now safe in the arms of Jesus - he's not going to meet them but he'll feel the guilt for all eternity.

It'd be interesting at Judgment Day for him to see those babies as grown adults. Let him listen to what they might say. Then let him carry the guilt.

Death resulting from a wood chipper accident would have been more fitting for the “doctor”.Then his death would have resembled that of somewhere around 50% of his “patients”.

I didn’t realize Georgia was so close to hell that you could feel the heat. :-)

Oh, Georgia isn’t close to hell at all. I was talking about the murderer abortionist going to hell and fueling Hell’s fire.

Please let me know if you need me to explain any further.
