Update on this post as of June 16th: Several of our readers brought to our attention that in February, the Arizona Board of Medical Examiners conducted an investigation of Goodrick and released its findings in a document available online here. According to BOMEX’s Findings of Facts, Goodrick, “reported to Board Staff that she had taken Fentanyl from her office for her personal use and that she may have a substance abuse problem.” The Board’s Physician Health Program Contractor also “determined that Respondent [Goodrick] was not safe to practice due to her health issues and recommended that she attend a chemical dependency evaluation.” BOMEX then place Goodrick on probation for five years.
I remained stunned that Phoenix Magazine would still publish this article!
My wife picked up the latest issue of Phoenix Magazine today and was shocked to read a disturbing and disgusting puff piece on a local Phoenix abortionist. The article is entitled “The Provider” and it is hitting mailboxes today.
The abortionist, Gabrielle Goodrick, proudly and readily admits that she performs about 40 abortions a week. That’s over 2,000 babies a year!
The article even mentions several pieces of pro-life legislation that were recently passed and signed by Governor Jan Brewer including legislation that prohibits abortions based on race and sex.
I’m not going to take the time to repost the entire article but you can view a copy of the images below.
Phoenix Magazine and Jessica Testa, the author of this article, ought to be ashamed for glorifying and presenting this practice in such a positive manner.
As a board member of a local crisis pregnancy center, we have to pick up the pieces for women who go through an abortion. Many of them carry the tragic burden of an abortion the rest of their lives. We have to help them try to heal after undergoing an abortion.
According to CamelbackFamilyPlanning.com, the website for Goodrick’s practice, she charges the following for the abortions she conducts:
Doing the math on performing 2,000 abortions at the rate of $460 (the cheapest rate at 5-11.6 weeks), Goodrick is paid around $920,000 a year! I guess you could say that Gabrielle Goodrick is really “making a killing” doing abortions here in Arizona.
