A California hospital has reportedly severed ties with an abortionist involved in a “demonic” confrontation with a pro-life activist, in which the doctor charged through the front doors of a medical facility while wielding a pair of scissors and proclaimed his “love” of tearing unborn babies apart in the womb.
The bizarre exchange with Dr. Robert Santella outside his Family Planning Associates abortion facility in San Diego was captured on video and uploaded to YouTube, reported WND.
“Stinky breath!” screamed Santella when the sidewalk counselor told him to repent.
“That’s pretty evil of you,” the counselor responds.
The abortionist then raises the scissors in his right hand as if to stab the counselor in the neck.
“That’s what you do to babies,” the pro-life activist calmly replies. He mocks the abortionist and tells him to “keep tearing the babies apart.”
“I will … I love it. I love it!” Santella sneers.
In a different version of the video, another pro-lifer at the scene describes the abortionist’s demeanor as “demonic.”
Santella has now been dropped by the local hospital, according to the pro-life group Operation Rescue.
A woman watching the video after it was posted online noticed the identification badge he was wearing and brought the encounter to the attention of Sharp Healthcare, a group of hospitals throughout San Diego County, reported the group.
Allyson Smith posted to her Facebook page the email she sent to the company:
“Hi there, I would like to bring this video to your attention. The crazed doctor in this video is Robert Santella, who performs abortions at Family Planning Associates on Miramar Road. You’ll notice he is wearing a Sharp Healthcare ID tag. A quick Internet search reveals that he is affiliated with Grossmont Hospital. Why is this “doctor” allowed to be affiliated with Grossmont Hospital? He is nuts and should be fired. What will you do about him? Thanks.”
Grossmont Hospital replied to Smith’s email:
“Thank you for your message. We appreciate your concerns regarding this physician, and we can assure you that he is no longer affiliated with any of our hospitals, he is not employed by our medical groups, and he does not practice or have admitting privileges at any of our facilities. We are currently looking into other aspects of this matter, and we will provide updates as we have more information.”
“This is a great example of how much can be accomplished with just a little smartly directed effort,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, in a statement. “Allyson’s letter will probably save a lot women from being subjected to Santella’s unstable behavior.”
In 1983, Santella’s license was suspended for 60 days by the California State Board of Medical Quality Assurance. He was also put on probation for five years after injuring three female patients and contributing to another woman’s miscarriage, reported LifeNews.
“Some people are not fit to practice medicine, and Robert Santella is among them,” added Newman. “We pray the Medical Board will take sterner measures to limit his options so he will be forced to look for another line of work. We also pray he gets the spiritual and mental health assistance he obviously requires.”
