Pro-life businessman purchases abortion clinic with sordid history

imageEarlier this month quack late-term abortionist Reginald Sharpe was forced to close his Women’s Advisory Center abortion clinic in Livonia, Michigan, when the building went into foreclosure – this on the heels of Sharpe filing for bankruptcy last October.

If the walls of this 32-yr-old building could talk, their tales would certainly horrify most listeners, since the structure has suffered a sordid array of abortionist owners. Up-front thanks to pro-life investigator Lynn Mills for her research on this post.

The clinic was opened in 1981 by Eugene Ralph Marra, a convicted felon who, after serving time for committing abortions as a nonphysician, was again discovered during an undercover sting by the Detroit Free Press in 1974 to be posing as “Dr. Mike Morrison” at an abortion clinic in Detroit. Marra hired Ebrahim Fayazi to kill babies, who after all these years still commits abortions in the Detroit area.

Marra’s wife Rosemary Lavelle got the building when the two divorced and rented the abortion business to Enrique Gerbi for years. I recently posted video from 1993 of Gerbi kicking a pro-lifer at the Livonia mill. Gerbi had at least 11 malpractice lawsuits filed against him.

In 2002 the building was sold to Adriana Holdings, wife of abortionist Rodolfo Finkelstein. Finkelstein fled the country to Argentina in 2005 after being convicted of criminal sexual assault of several abortion patients at the Livonia property, including at least one minor.

Sharpe took over the abortion business from Finkelstein in 2005, even as Sharpe saw his own medical license suspended for negligence of an abortion patient.

In 2006 Sharpe’s father, who died in 2010, bought the building via Sharksky, LLC for $365,000.

Sharpe has been sued at least three times for negligence, including by the family of a patient who died in 2008.

Which brings us to today and a series of amazing Godincidences that lead to a happy ending for this sad building.

On March 7 Lynn Mills happened by the clinic when a man was changing the locks, and he told her the name of the bank that had taken possession.

imageWhen Lynn passed by the building on March 11, she saw that the abortion clinic sign was down – for the first time in three decades. Lynn was so overcome she collapsed on the sidewalk in tears and thanks to God.

A man driving by stopped to make sure Lynn was ok, and when he learned the building would soon be for sale, he said he would be interested in purchasing it to keep it from becoming an abortion clinic again.

It turns out the man, Bill, with whom I spoke this afternoon, is a neighbor of the clinic, involved in commercial real estate, and strongly pro-life.image

There was no “for sale” sign up yet, but Lynn, pictured left, knew the name of the bank and put the man and the bank in touch with one another.

The bank accepted Bill’s offer of $125,000 cash.

Bill told me a doctor friend involved in holistic medicine has already expressed interest in leasing the building. He has other leads if that doesn’t work.

But Bill assured me, “There will no longer be abortions there. Even if they offer me one million bucks a month, I will never, ever rent to an abortion clinic.”

  1. Thank God for people like this man and Lynn! We need more people like them. Proof that there are still good people in this world . However the backlash from the moon bats is yet to come. Hang on to your hats!!


  2. That’s just what i was thinking, Carla…
    But, hopefully, any “evil spirits” went out the door with the last abortionist!


  3. This place was first opened by a convicted felon who did abortions as a non physician. Abortion patients sexually assaulted. Injured and dead women. These sound like horror stories from pre Roe v Wade.
    Are you telling me legalizing abortion didn’t put the criminal element out of business?
    I’m speechless.


  4. Hi Mary…indeed the only thing abortion did was took the back alley to the front.


  5. And might I add these are still the same depraved individuals from the back alley days. The only difference now is that it’s all legal. Abortion is still the ultimate war on women!!


  6. Hi Heather,
    Did you ever check out that movie? The plot takes a very interesting twist centered around the illegal abortionist the detective is trying so hard to convict. Censorship in that era is also apparent, which is quite interesting. Nonetheless, a very emotionally intense and good movie.


  7. Mary would u be so kind as to post the title again? Id like to jot it down now. With the sudden unexpected death of my husband I was in a fog and things became a bit backed up for me. thanks:)


  8. Every time I go to the Planned Parenthood to pray with 40 Days for Life, I walk the length of the building once usually more praying for demons to be cast out and for demonic influence to be removed from the people there. It sure is great to hear this building will now be used for much better things than murdering babies and ruining the lives of mothers and families.

    Mary, thanks for the tip on the movie, I’ll look that up.


  9. Hi Victor,
    You’re welcome. Even with the censorship in place, its very apparent what is happening. Kirk Douglas is outstanding and the twist the movie takes where the abortionist is concerned will surprise you. As I said, its very intense drama.

    Me too Mary!!  Speechless and shocked!! Shocked I tell you!  
    Where in the world did all of these back alley butchers come from??? Roe V Wade totally took care of the abortionists hacks that were harming women!!  Didn’t it??


  11. Thanks be to God!  Call the bishop and arrange for Mass to be said inside the building first.  Exorcise the demons of death and bring them face to face with the Body of Christ.  They will flee!!  Then bless and anoint the place with holy water and oil on every wall and door!


  12. I am Protestant but I do agree a minister should pray against the spirit of death, barbaric mutilation, murder and any other demonic influence in this building before opening it again. I pray that this building will be put to good use. Thank God for the redeeming power of Jesus Christ to transform.
    As a healthcare worker, I can tell you the amount of blood that it takes to accomplish performing an abortion is a gory mess so to perform this procedure in this building was extremely risky. Along with the fact as I have stated before on this blog, the only “doctors” (and I use that term very loosely) that I ever knew who performed abortions were the bottom of the barrel ones who could not build a solid medical practice because they were incompetent butchers. What a sad building with a tragic history.  


  13. Hi Heather and Victor,
    Great news , the full movie is on Youtube. You can watch it in a series of videos or as a full movie.


  14. Sorry folks link failed. I’m not on my own computer so I’m having some problems. Just go to youtube and write in detective story 1951, You will find the full version.
    I’m watching it now.


  15. Ok mary will do I’ve been having problems with my you tube too. It keeps stalling. I wish i could fix it.


  16. I remember when the abortion mill in Witchita was purchased by pro-lifers. They went through it with a video camera and luminol to document the filthiness and presence of blood everywhere. Then, I would physically clean it and spiritually exorcise/purify it.


  17. Hi Joanne,
    I remember that video. While I have no doubt the place was a slaughterhouse, I would caution against anyone without some background in chemistry or police forensics playing amateur detective as the PL people in the video did. One can end up looking very foolish and discredit themselves bigtime by applying what they learned from watching true crime dramas and presenting it as solid proof of anything.


  18. Hi Heather,
    If no luck with youtube you can rent the movie for a couple of dollars from amazon, or buy it for about $5.
