Pro-lifers in Michigan have uncovered a long rap sheet of offenses – including charges of assault and domestic violence – for a Grand Rapids abortionist whose National Abortion Federation (NAF) facility describes him as having “professionalism, integrity, and superior skills.”
Thomas James Gordon performs abortions at the Heritage Clinic for Women in Grand Rapids, according to pro-life activist Leisa Speheger Snow, who regularly sidewalk counsels outside the facility. Snow noticed that Gordon had not been seen at the abortion center for several days, and with the help of pro-life investigator Lynn Mills, located Gordon’s arrest information at the Kent County Sheriff website.
According to Kent County booking number 1600779, Gordon spent 4 days in jail after his arrest on January 13, 2016. Records indicate that Gordon was charged with “disorderly person/fighting jostling.”
A search on the Michigan Department of Corrections website reveals that Gordon was also arrested in 2011. In that incident, his offenses included domestic violence as well as “Weapons – Firearms – Possession Under the Influence.”
Records on file with Michigan’s Internet Criminal History Online website (provided to Live Action News by local grand rapids pro-lifers) show that Gordon may have other arrests. The document shows a Thomas James Gordon with same arrest record as located on the Michigan Department of Corrections website with a long rap sheet of criminal history.
In addition, it shows misdemeanor aggravated assault charges dating back to 1991. More recently, in 2015, charges against Gordon listed on that state document include misdemeanor domestic violence and misdemeanor operating while intoxicated.

Interestingly, the Heritage Clinic for Women, which is a member of the National Abortion Federation, described Gordon this way on their website:
Thomas J. Gordon, M.D., Gynecologist, is the current Medical Director and has served in this capacity since 1986. He possesses a strong sense of dedication, professionalism and integrity in combination with his medical knowledge and superior skills.
Perhaps they will reconsider after this information becomes public.
