John Hamilton Oklahoma murder: that would be abortionist John Hamilton, who bludgeoned his wife, Susan, to death in the bathroom of their home on Valentine's Day of 2001.

how late can you have a abortion in nj: Steve Brigham advertises up to 24 weeks, which I assume is the legal cut-off for elective abortion. Trust him at your own risk.

Douglas Karpen: Performed the fatal abortion on 15-year-old Denise Montoya in 1988 at a National Abortion Federation member clinic. And I myself heard a tape of Karpen at a National Abortion Federation meeting complaining that prolifers were interfering with his late-abortion business by helping women who changed their minds get the laminaria removed so they could continue their pregnancies. Instead of suggesting that he improve his counseling techniques so that he wouldn't be initiating abortions on women who were uncertain, his fellows suggested that he have his patients sign papers promising to continue the abortions even if they changed their minds.
