NJ abortion doctor's license is suspended

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - October 13, 2010

The New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners temporarily suspended Dr. Steven Brigham's only remaining medical license Wednesday. Its ruling calls him "manipulative" and "deceptive" in transporting the patients from Voorhees, N.J., to Elkton, Md., to take advantage of differences in state abortion laws.

Authorities say Brigham started late-term abortions with medication in New Jersey and finished them in Maryland, where the law is more permissive.

Brigham plans to appeal.
