William Egherman, M.D. filed a suit against Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky, Inc. (“PPSONK”) and Roslyn G. Kade, M. D. in the Court of Common Pleas in Hamilton County, Ohio on May 26, 1998. The Case No. is A9802950 before Judge Tracey.
Egherman claims that PPSONK fired him without cause and therefore broke a contract with him. The one year contract is attached to the Complaint as an exhibit and was signed by Egherman on 3/26/97. The contract stipulates that Egherman would be paid $65.00 per abortion (6-14 weeks LMP), $15.00 for a physical exam, $20.00 for physical exam with ultrasound, and $20.00 for physical exam with laminaria insertion.
Egherman claims $50,000 to $100,000 in damages so far in loss of income, plus commuting costs to travel and eventually live in Florida.
Egherman claims he was fired because he refused to follow PPSONK procedures which required him to:
- Reuse syringes on more than one patient.
- Not use parenteral pain medications with anti-emetics, when in Dr. Egherman’s medical opinion they were required.
Dr. Egherman claims that Dr. Kade told PPSONK employees that Dr. Egherman’s procedures were unsafe and that he was being discharged based on that information.
Planned Parenthood Responds
Planned Parenthood (PPSONK) responded on July 31, 1998 with a MOTION TO DISMISS COMPLAINT for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. This motion is a standard legal maneuver to test the sufficiency of the complaint. The material factual allegations in the complaint must be assumed to be true and not argued at this point. All reasonable inferences must be taken in Egherman’s favor.
PPSONK is walking a fine line in trying to show that they fired Egherman for cause while not admitting that any unsafe procedures occurred at their facility.
Egherman files Memorandum in Opposition
On or about August 14, 1998 Egherman filed a Memorandum in Opposition to Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss.
A decision from Judge Tracey on the Motion to Dismiss is pending.

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?
This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.
Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.
The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?
As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).
Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!
Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.
Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.
