Gary Clayton Boyld works as an abortionist at Charleston Women's Medical Center.
Pulls Gun on Pro-Lifers
On March 2, 2011, LifeNews reported that abortionist Gary Boyle, apparently upset at the fact that local pro-life advocates had been participating in the national 40 Days for Life campaign, met their peaceful presence by pulling a gun:
- "Boyle drove his silver Lexus vehicle into the parking lot and he allegedly approached the pro-life advocates, including a 17-year-old boy, and produced a black handgun loaded with 15 rounds. As Boyle, who also runs the Bristol Regional Women’s Center abortion facility in Tennessee, made his way to the abortion business, 50-year-old pro-life resident John Karafa called 911. Police arrested Boyle and charged him with pointing a firearm.
- According to the Post and Courier newspaper, a police detective said in court today that Boyle, during an interview with police officials, admitted to having a weapon but claimed he pointed it at the ceiling of his SUV and not at any of the pro-life advocates. Boyle told officers he was worried for his life even though pro-life advocates did not threaten him in any way and claimed three pro-life people approached his vehicle. The people at the abortion center that day dispute that claim.
- Boyle is officially charged with presenting a firearm, a felony that could see him face as many as five years in prison if convicted and sentenced to the maximum term. Boyle reportedly holds a Tennessee permit to carry the gun, and the state has a reciprocal agreement with South Carolina to allow weapons to be carried that are eligible in Tennessee. He has already been freed on $25,000 bond."
