Support doctor; stop investigating him

Dr. Byron Calhoun, vice chairman of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department of West Virginia University Physicians of Charleston, wrote a most firm complaint of a botched abortion to West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. He also complained of the horrible state of affairs of West Virginia abortion mills and abortion medical procedures.

In response to Dr. Calhoun’s complaint to the attorney general, Delegate Nancy Guthrie, D-Kanawha, has called for an inquiry by the West Virginia Board of Medicine to investigate Dr. Calhoun for his scathing letter.

Delegate Guthrie’s complaint also states that Dr. Calhoun has violated his medical ethics by not reporting the substandard service of the abortion mills killing fields. What in the world is Delegate Guthrie talking about, as Dr. Calhoun HAS reported on the sad, sad facts of the abortion mills to the attorney general?

It appears that Delegate Guthrie is following her Democrat party platform of unlimited and unfettered abortions to any and all comers, regardless of age or creed. Is it possible that Delegate Guthrie is condoning an obviously run-amok medical problem with the abortion mills? What is in it for the West Virginia Democrat Party and Delegate Guthrie in particular?

In the upcoming session of the West Virginia Legislature, Delegate Guthrie needs to author and sponsor legislation to outlaw the killing fields of West Virginia abortion mills, instead of going after God-fearing physicians who report on the dire conditions of West Virginia abortions and the slums where the abortions are performed.
