Special report:
Arizona abortionist sent to prison for manslaughter

Abortionist John Biskind Abortionist John Biskind appears in Maricopa County Superior Court.
Mark Henle
The Arizona Republic

Abortionist John Biskind of Cleveland was sentenced to five years in prison on May 4, after being found guilty of manslaughter by a Phoenix jury. Biskind was also ordered to pay $12,841.40 in restitution. His former administrative assistant, Carol Stuart-Schadoff was sentenced to four years probation and the same amount of restitution. The jury found her guilty of a lesser charge of negligent homicide.

The trial was held as a result of the death of LouAnne Herron, 33, who bled to death after a late-term abortion at the A-Z Women's Center on April 17, 1998. Biskind ruptured her uterus with a sharp medical instrument during the abortion. The A-Z Women's Center is now closed, and Biskind's Arizona medical license has been revoked.

"The conduct by Dr. Biskind is so outrageous, it shocks the conscience."

- County Attorney Rick Romley

Biskind has 20 days to file an appeal.

This page documents news reports about this case, and other reports relevant to abortionist Biskind. If there are any further developments in this case, we will do our best to keep this page updated. (Some breaking stories we haven't posted here yet should be on the news feed on our main news page.) We also hope to provide you a perspective on this case from some of the pro-life missionaries who minister to women in the Phoenix area. (If you are one of these Arizona missionaries, please send us a message.)

Editorial cartoon

This case was one more example of the fact that most abortionists care almost as much about the women they "serve" as they care about the tiny children they mutilate. When will we stop allowing our nation's precious women to be subjected to such blood-thirsty scoundrels?
