Abortionist caught in illegal scam may have license suspended or revoked

An abortionist, once cited for sexual abuse, may have his medical license suspended or revoked after taking part in an illegal scam to keep an abortion clinic operating.

Officials in New Jersey say abortion doctor Vikram Kaji used a scam to keep an abortion clinic owned by Steven Chase Brigham operating in the state after his medical license had been revoked.

A report by the NJ.com reads in part:

Steven Chase Brigham

Abortionist Steven Brigham, who owned and operated abortion clinics in several states, lost his medical license in New Jersey after it was discovered that he started late-term abortions for women in his South Jersey office and ordered them to drive to his Maryland clinic to finish the procedure.

He used the two-state practice to evade New Jersey law prohibiting doctors from performing abortions after the 14th week outside a hospital or other licensed medical facility.

As a result, Brigham was ordered to reimburse the state’s Attorney General $420,000 for legal fees and was ordered by the state’s Board of Medical Examiners to pay an additional $140,000 fine.

State law prohibits doctors whose licenses have been revoked from operating clinics in the state.

To skirt the law, Brigham claimed that he sold his interests to his medical director Vikram Kaji, whose medical license was suspended in New Jersey and Pennsylvania in the mid-1990s for sexually abusing patients and wrongly prescribing controlled substances.

Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher’s book, Lime 5, details Kaji’s sexual abuse:

I sometimes get too friendly, but nothing is meant by it in my mind, for sure,” Kaji said at the time. “The problem is I don’t realize how the other person is taking it.”

Of course at the time this all happened and the state suspended his medical license, Kaji vowed that he was done practicing medicine – yet- he has managed to remain in the abortion industry as an active physician.

In April, Operation Rescue submitted a letter of complaint to Deputy Attorney General Jeri Warhaftig urging her office to disallow the alleged transfer of Steven Chase Brigham’s New Jersey abortion businesses to Vikram Kaji.

But, according to NJ.com, when an investigator from the Division of Consumer Affairs performed an unannounced inspection at a clinic in Hamilton April 22, Kaji denied he was the owner.

In addition to New Jersey, Brigham has lost or surrendered his license in California, New York, Pennsylvania Florida.

Despite that, Brigham’s abortion clinic chain, American Women’s Services shows they perform abortions in several New Jersey cities including, Elizabeth, Englewood, Paramus, Hamilton, Phillipsburg, Toms River, Voorhees, and Woodbridge. In addition, they also have clinics in Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland.

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who is also a co-host of Life Talk TV is calling for all of Brigham’s abortion clinics to be closed down.

“Because Brigham continues to illegally operate his chain of abortion clinics in New Jersey, they should all be immediately shut down and Brigham should be criminally charged,” Newman said.

“Brigham has made a career of deceiving the public and authorities in several states about his shoddy abortion businesses. It’s time for New Jersey authorities to see through this flim-flam man and end his notorious criminal enterprise with a long period of incarceration,” he said.

Officials have not stated whether there has been a case opened against Brigham as well.
