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.

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism
Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner
The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.
Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.
Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification
In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.
By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

“Give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.
The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).
