First-Degree Sexual Assault, Second-Degree Sexual Assault, Fourth-Degree Sexual Assault and Risk of Injury to a Minor This is another example of the dozens of cases described in this database where child molesters find that abortion is their best friend. It allows them to “erase” the physical evidence of their crimes and continue to molest their victims. Abortion mills almost never report such molestation. In fact, “prochoice” groups routinely battle any attempt to make abortion clinics mandatory reporters so that they would be required to report such molestation.
42-year-old pro-abortionist Michael Britt had a great thing going. He liked his girls young (the younger the better), and he ran a modeling agency called Model World Enterprises that was ideally located ― on the floor above an abortion mill. He told girls that, if they wanted to be models, they would have to have sexual intercourse with him. He told one young girl "This is what it takes to be a model. If you want to be a model this is what you are going to have to do." When one 14-year-old girl got pregnant, Britt took her to the Summit Women's Center abortion mill, located one floor below his modeling agency, and had sexual intercourse with her under the guise of giving her an abortion, saying that he was applying "a special abortion cream." This was done after the usual killing hours of the abortuary. On July 14, 2005, police charged Britt with first-degree sexual assault, second-degree sexual assault, fourth-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor. On August 29, 2007, Superior Court Judge Richard Comerford Jr. sentenced Britt to ten years in

"Connecticut Abortion Center Staffer Sentenced to Prison for Sexual Abuse." LifeNews, August 30, 2007. First-Degree Sexual Assault (2 counts), Risk of Injury to a Minor, Failure to Report Suspected Child Abuse or Neglect (4 counts) This pitiful case shows one again what an excellent cover abortion is for child sexual abuse. A ten-year-old girl, whose name is being withheld by the press and police because of her age, met 75-year-old Jimmie Kave through an "Adopt-a-Godfather" program at Harborview Towers on East Washington Avenue, Bridgeport Housing Authority complex for senior citizens. Kave began having intercourse with the girl, who eventually became pregnant and gave birth to a child. DNA tests showed that Kave was the father of the child. Kave was arrested on March 22, 2002, when the girl's mother complained to police that Kave had impregnated her daughter. She said her daughter would visit Kave at his apartment, and they played games and went places together. Kave was charged with six counts of first-degree sexual assault, eight counts of risk of injury to a minor and two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault. Kave went to police headquarters on April 9, 2002, and gave a statement. He said he never forced the girl to have sex with him. Instead, he said he bought her clothes and gifts, and she repaid him with sex. Last Christmas Eve, Kave told police, they returned to his apartment after buying about $100 worth of clothing for the girl. He said once they got home the girl approached him and began touching him in a sexual manner. This led to intercourse, according to his statement. The girl gave birth in May 2002, and both she and her child are in the custody of the state Department of Children and Families. On October 8, 2002, Kave pleaded guilty to first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor. State's Attorney Jonathan Benedict recommended that Kave serve a 15-year prison term. Police said Kave has an extensive prior criminal record, including a 1984 conviction for sexual assault in New Haven. This tragedy was compounded by the fact that two city doctors, Mukeshkumar Shah and Ann Lule, examined the girl and determined she was pregnant, and then recommended that she have an abortion at the Summit Women's Medical Center abortion mill. Shah and Lule are believed to be the first physicians charged with violating the state's 37-year-old mandatory reporting law for child abuse. They were arrested at their Main Street office on April 25, 2002, and were each charged with two counts of failing to report suspected child abuse or neglect. The charge against the doctors is a misdemeanor punishable by a $500 fine or up to a year in jail. Doctors, nurses, teachers and priests are among the professionals required by state law to report any suspicions of child abuse within 24 hours. The clear-cut details of the 11-year-old Bridgeport girl's case made the arrests of Shah and Lule an easy decision. Dr. Robert M. Reese, Professor of Pediatrics at Tufts University, remarked "An 11-year-old who is pregnant? That has to be reported. ... This is not a subtle case." The doctors' arrest comes just two weeks after Chief State's Attorney John M. Bailey and Department of Children and Families Commissioner Kristine D. Ragaglia sent letters to hundreds of doctors and nurses reminding them of their legal obligations to immediately report all suspicions of child abuse. Similar letters were sent to area churches, synagogues and religious organizations. Bailey said the law in such instances is clear. "Our feeling is they have to report cases like this, it's mandatory," Bailey said Friday.

Kave pleaded guilty to sexual assault in November 2002. In December 2002, Shah received a special form of probation and was granted accelerated probation, a program for first-time offenders committing nonviolent crimes. The charges against Ann Lule were dismissed. References: Colin Poitras. "Failure To Report Pregnancy Brings Charges." The Hartford Courant, April 27, 2002; John Christoffersen, Associated Press.

Assault (2 incidents), Theft, and Disturbing the Peace On December 17, 2002, a male abortion client was arrested outside the Summit Women's Center abortion mill in Bridgeport for spraying a liquid at one of the Rosary-praying women who was trying to talk to him and his daughter as they entered the abortuary. The young woman was visibly upset as she buried her head with tears rolling down her face. In response to a call to the police, an ambulance and at least five police cars arrived at the scene. The man was arrested and charged with assault. Just six days later, on December 23, 2002, police arrested the abortion mill's parking lot attendant/guard for disturbing the peace. He had been complaining about pro-lifers holding signs near his precious abortuary, yelling at them not to touch the fence, and that they were preventing the abortion mill from doing its business. He then began arguing with a police officer and tried repeatedly to provoke pro-lifers. At one point he taunted the policeman, saying he should "go to church with the pro-lifers." Eventually, the police officer, after repeatedly warning the guard, got fed up and arrested him. This was the same man who had spit in a pro-lifer's face in the past, and who had stolen pro-life signs from picketers.

Harassment (11 incidents) Dennis Green is the Director of a Virginia-based pro-life group, Life and Liberty Ministries. He often drives his "Truth Truck," which is festooned with photographs of aborted babies, so that people can

see the truth about prenatal child lynching. In early August 2004, Dennis was driving his truck on Interstate 95 near Bridgeport, Connecticut, when state trooper David Febbraio pulled him over and told him that he could not continue driving until he removed the signs from his vehicle. Green refused, standing on his First Amendment freedom of speech rights. Green said Febbraio then "began to fish for any reason to charge" him. A second state trooper began to "verbally attack" him for displaying the images of abortion on his truck. Febbraio reportedly told Green that "People should have the freedom not to look at this." When one of Green's companions, 24-year-old Michael Marcavage of Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, tried to videotape the harassment, the troopers arrested him and charged him with a felony. The troopers claimed that they ordered Marcavage back to the truck "for his own safety," and arrested him when he refused to do so. When Marcavage was in police custody, they ridiculed him for his religious faith. Febbraio called him a "Jesus Freak," "wing nut," "brain-washed," and a "scam artist," among other things. Marcavage spent four hours in jail and was eventually released on $1,000 bail. Police told Green to get back into his truck and get out of the state. Police followed him and told him that he was not to stop or exit the highway. According to the Associated Press, police said the truck was a safety concern because it was moving too slowly and was drawing a great deal of attention. Marcavage denies that the truck was moving slowly. According to the American Family Association Center for Law and Policy, Febbraio was arrested and charged with eight counts of harassment of a disabled state police dispatcher in 2003. Febbraio allegedly referred to the dispatcher as "Gimpy" and used the dispatcher's home address to subscribe to Playboy, CosmoGirl and other magazines. Febbraio described the incident as a "practical joke." Brian Fahling, Senior Trial Attorney for the Center, said "This is a picture-perfect example of how to mishandle First Amendment issues." Michael J. DePrimo, Senior Litigation Counsel for the Center, added, "When a trooper behaves in such a rude, reckless and lawless manner, he opens the door for a federal lawsuit. That is exactly what Febbraio has done in this case." References: "CT State Police Arrest One Christian for Video Taping Harassment and Make Two Others Leave the State."

Indecent Exposure On October 18, 2003, pro-abortionist Vincent Brazeau saw pro-lifers picketing outside the Women's Health Care abortion mill in Bridgeport, Connecticut. He dropped his trousers and mooned them, and was arrested and charged with indecent exposure. Brazeau, who was walking into the clinic, told investigators that he disliked how the protesters were talking to him and wanted to vent his frustration, police said. The victims had asked Brazeau if they could pray for him, and he exposed his buttocks soon afterwards, police said. Reference: "Man Charged With Mooning Anti-Abortion Protesters."

Child Rape (3 counts), Rape, Indecent Assault (2 counts) and Battery This is another example of the dozens of cases described in this database where child molesters find that abortion is their best friend. It allows them to “erase” the physical evidence of their crimes and continue to molest their victims. Abortion mills almost never report such molestation. In fact, “prochoice” groups routinely battle any attempt to make abortion clinics mandatory reporters so that they would be required to report such molestation.
51-year-old Steven Infante was a typical “pro-choice” male ― he liked his girls young, and the younger, the better. Infante had a great job that gave him access to many young girls. He coached girl’s gymnastics in Massachusetts and Connecticut and was the president of the Five Star Gymnastics Overnight Camp held in Springfield, Massachusetts every year. He was also the former owner of Olympia Gymnastics in Brookfield. He had sex with at least six different girls he was coaching, half of them under the legal age. One girl was only 13 years old. Infante raped her repeatedly and, when she became pregnant, took her to an abortion mill that asked no questions. The abortionist took his money, aborted the girl, and sent her back to Infante to be raped again. He was indicted on charges of rape and child rape in November 2007 and released on bail after pleading not guilty. On May 26, 2010, after deliberating for more than two days, a Middlesex County, Massachusetts jury found Infante guilty of three counts of child rape, one count of rape, two counts of indecent assault and battery on a person over the age of 14. Middlesex Superior Court Judge Bruce R. Henry then sentenced him to eight to 10 years in prison. Judge Henry also ordered five years of probation following prison time, with the conditions that Infante have no direct or indirect contact with any witnesses, that he have no contact with any person under the age of 18, and that he register as a sex offender. Middlesex District Attorney Gerard T. Leone Jr. said that "This defendant took advantage of his position as a coach and mentor to these victims, violating the trust of these young girls and their parents by engaging in a pattern of inappropriate, prurient behavior and grooming in order to force these vulnerable victims into submitting to sexual assault." Leone said that Infante began "a pattern of grooming" victims in order "to become more comfortable with his approaches and excessive physical contact." This grooming included "gifts, alcohol, excessive flirtatious actions, sexual innuendo and inappropriate touching ... as part of camp rituals."

41-year-old dog trainer Adam Gault was a devotee of both pornography and "polyamory," having sex with a number of women over a period of time. He lived with two women, forty-year-old Ann Murphy and 26-year-old Kimberly Cray ― but what got him into trouble was the 15-year-old runaway girl, Danielle Cramer, he kept locked in a storage space under a staircase at his home in West Hartford, Connecticut for nearly a year. Danielle became pregnant by him and, on May 1, 2007, one of his female "companions" took her to a local Planned Parenthood abortion mill to solve his problems. About a month later, police discovered the girl locked in the storage space. Her frantic mother had been searching for her since she had simply disappeared in June 2006. On August 1, 2007, police filed charges of kidnapping, conspiracy, sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor against Gault and his "companions." A DNA test on the body of the preborn child confirmed that Gault was its father. Nobody at Planned Parenthood seemed to think it strange that an older unrelated woman would appear with a young girl for an abortion. Nobody knows what kind of identification the girl used, since she was too young to have a driver's license. In March 2008, Gault entered guilty pleas on eight felony charges ― two counts of first-degree kidnapping, four counts of second-degree sexual assault, risk of injury to a minor, and conspiracy to commit first-degree kidnapping. On July 11, 2008, Gault was sentenced to 25 years in prison by a state judge who said he couldn't decide whether he had a distorted sense or reality or was simply evil. On May 6, 2008, Murphy and Cray, who had full knowledge of what was going on, each pleaded guilty to kidnapping, conspiracy and risk of injury to a minor. References: Charlotte Allen.

Modesto Reyes was a "pro-choice" Pentecostal pastor who liked his girls young ― 11 and 13 years old, in this case. In the Spring and Fall of 2005, he sexually assaulted two young girls in his care. The eleven-year-old girl became pregnant by him and bore a healthy baby boy, and the thirteen-year-old also became pregnant. Reyes did everything he could to convince the second girl to have an abortion, but she eventually miscarried. Reyes asked the teenager's mother "You're not going to let her have the baby are you?" The mother told police that she found his response "very strange, coming from a pastor" because "it sounded like he was advocating for [her] to have an abortion." In October 2007, Reyes pleaded guilty to first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor in the first girl's case. On January 10, 2008, he pleaded guilty to four counts of second-degree sexual assault and four counts of risk of injury to a minor before Judge David Gold in Superior Court in

Hartford in the second victim's case. All pleas were entered under the Alford Doctrine, in which the defendant does not admit guilt, but acknowledges that the state's evidence is strong enough to secure a conviction. References: Tina A. Brown. "Reyes Urged Abortion." Hartford Courant, December 20, 2007; Tina A. Brown. "Pastor Pleads Guilty To Second Assault." Hartfort Courant January 10, 2008. First-Degree Sexual Assault (4 counts) and Attempted Criminal Abortion (3 counts) Pro-abortionist Edwin Sandoval, 35, was found guilty of seven felony charges, including first-degree sexual assault, on January 12, 2001, after trying to forcibly abort his girlfriend several times. During his trial, his girlfriend said that Sandoval was very angry the day she told him of her pregnancy, and he pressured her to have an abortion. She testified that he tried to induce an abortion with his fingers, and that she told him to stop. The next day, they had sex again, and again he tried to induce an abortion this way. She testified that "I said no, but he didn't stop this time. It really hurt. I pushed him away, and told him to get out of my house." On another occasion, on August 10, 1998, he forced two capsules of the abortifacient misoprostol into her vagina. She consulted a doctor a few hours after this last incident, after noticing vaginal bleeding. The doctor found the misoprostol tablets, removed them and urged her to call police. Her healthy baby was born in March 1999. In March 2003, Sandoval was sentenced to 12 years in prison, and the Connecticut Supreme Court unanimously upheld his conviction in May 2003. Now if he had been a licensed abortionist, and if his girlfriend had chosen to have an abortion, he would be several hundred dollars richer instead of sitting in prison.

Weber had his medical license revoked in New York for medical misconduct involving 13 patients. His medical license was suspended in Connecticut on charges that he performed an abortion on Mary Miller without her knowledge or permission. His application to practice medicine in Florida was rejected. The abortionist was disciplined in 1990 for failure to perform a needed C-section, causing the infant to die. Weber reportedly "allowed Patient L's marital status to influence his medical judgment." Additional obstetric allegations of failure to detect gestational diabetes resulting in fetal death, misadministration of Pitocin resulting in a torn cervix, almost causing the death of a patient, were also filed against him. He slapped the face of another patient in labor in October 1986, telling her "I want you to push with no noise." During a November 1986 delivery, he pulled so hard with forceps his "face and arms were tense and the bed shook." The forceps collapsed, and Weber fell on the patient. The infant was born with a blood cyst on his scalp, and a cut over his right eye, and the woman suffered tissue tears.

Attempted Murder, First-Degree Assault and Resisting Arrest Terrence Crawford is a typical “pro-choice” male who reflexively resorted to violence when he was confronted with an uncomfortable situation that he himself had caused. His underaged girlfriend was pregnant by him, and he told one of his friends that "I don't want no damn baby." On November 6, 2010, the 16-year-old girl met Crawford and one of his friends at the South Norwalk train station. Crawford told her he was having trouble with police and that they needed to “lay low,” and all three of them walked into a nearby wooded area. At that time, she told Crawford that she was pregnant with his baby, something he had previously suspected. Previously, Crawford had been talking to his friend about murdering the girl because she was pregnant, but the friend thought he was joking. The friend’s statement said that "As he began walking in the woods with her I saw him begin to pull a knife out of his jeans. I thought to myself `he is really going to stab her.’ A couple of minutes later I heard her screaming really loud. She was yelling, "It hurts" and "I'm bleeding." The girl said that "Terrence must have had a knife because I realized I was stabbed where Terrence was hitting me." She suffered several knife wounds to her left abdomen and neck, and cuts on her left elbow and both hands. After the attack, Crawford and his friend carried her out of the woods and police responded when a witness called them. They saw Crawford and his friend, who began to run upon seeing them. They were arrested shortly after. One officer noticed blood on Crawford’s body and clothing, and he said that "I didn't do anything. I gotta check on my girl. … It's my girl's blood. I tried to carry her from the woods. I gotta see if my girl's OK.” Crawford’s girlfriend was taken to Norwalk Hospital and lodged in intensive care, suffering from a punctured lung and numerous knife cuts all over her body. Her preborn child survived the brutal assault. On November 8, 2010, Crawford was charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault, and resisting arrest. Judge Bruce Hudock of Superior Court set his bond at $500,000.

Gross Negligence, Negligence, Incompetence and Malpractice (5 incidents) Abortionist Hanan Rotem, a member of the National Abortion Federation (NAF), fatally botched an April 29, 1986 second-trimester abortion on 20-year-old Gloria Aponte, who bled to death a few hours later. The Connecticut Medical Board disciplined Rotem for failing to perform an essential blood test and allowing a receptionist with no medical training to assist in abortions. In another botched abortion, a jury found that the abortionist failed to arrange appropriate follow-up, the patient was not advised of the risks prior to the surgery, and that a reasonable person would not have consented to the surgery if informed of the risks.

Rotem was also fined and reprimanded by the Connecticut Medical Board in 1989 for substandard care, incompetence, and negligence. He was reprimanded by the New Jersey Medical Board in 1992 for failure to order or perform appropriate blood tests prior to abortion and employing inadequately trained personnel.

Assault [Greenwich] On July 22, 1990, abortionist Stephen Kaali, the owner of the New York's Women's Medical Pavilion abortuary, arrived at his home to find a pro-life picket in progress. Kaali pulled up alongside picketer Carol Centonze in a pickup truck and dumped a bucket of urine and feces on her head, saying "This is all for you, honey." He was arrested for "breach of peace."

Assault on a Police Officer, Third-Degree Assault, Disorderly Conduct and Interfering with an Emergency Phone Call Arturo Rojas’ girlfriend was three months pregnant by him, and had refused his demands to get an abortion. So, on June 9, 2010, he decided to handle the situation the “pro-choice” way — with violence. He punched her several times in the stomach in an attempt to get her to miscarry. She attempted to call 9-1-1, but he took the phone from her and hung it up. Rojas left the scene of the attack but returned when police were there. He admitted to them that he had assaulted his girlfriend, saying, “Yeah, I messed that [woman] up. She is stupid and won't get an abortion.” Police charged Rojas with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and interfering with an emergency phone call. In 2009, he had spent several months in jail for assaulting a police officer. He was jailed on $95,000 bond and was prohibited from having any contact with the unnamed woman.
