A Texas abortionist who vowed to stay open after the state passed sweeping new pro-life laws has said he is closing down his abortion mill. The abortionist is Lester Minto, who operates Reproductive Services in Harlingen, located on the border with Mexico.
Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue tells OneNewsNow that Minto vowed to stay open. “He has vowed to do (abortions) under a mesquite tree or on a shrimp boat, if necessary,” says Sullenger, “and he also made a really bizarre statement about how the government would have to pry his speculum out of his cold, dead hand.” The speculum is an instrument used in abortions.
The Valley Morning Star newspaper reported Minto spoke at a pro-abortion rally where he held up the speculum and made the “cold, dead hands” vow. Minto has now announced he will close in 90 days.
The Texas law, in part, bans abortions after 20 weeks; raises the standards for administering RU486, the abortion pill; places new regulations on abortion clinics to improve their medical standards; and requires abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges within 30 miles of the clinic.
