Ralph Bundy, The Abortion Clinic Doctor

By Editorial Staff
Published September 15, 1999

By Kate Santich Of the Sentinel Staff

Most doctors who perform abortions don’t say so publicly.

Fewer still consent to media interviews.

And it is nothing short of extraordinary for one to lend his face to the cover of a magazine labeling him: “The Abortion Doctor,” as the Florida magazine headline read on May 13, 1990.

But Dr. Ralph Bundy says he has no regrets. He is, in fact, as outspoken as ever.

“People think this is just about abortion, but it’s not. It’s the whole morality-control thing: You can’t watch The Last Temptation of Christ, the video-rental store is being told which movies it can stock, and they’re trying to dictate to Wal-Mart the magazines it can sell. It’s a matter of what you’re willing to lie down for and let them do to you.”

Bundy, medical director of The Women’s Health Center Inc. in Orlando and Daytona Beach, got a lot of mail for the first few weeks after the story ran -maybe 20 or 30 letters, he says, running 3-or 4-to-1 in his favor – and he still gets new patients who seek him out because they’ve read about him.

His colleagues expressed surprise. His friends, with one exception, expressed support.

“I did lose one really good friend that I’d had for 20 years,” he says. “She sent me a couple of books, and the message – both from the books and from her – was that I was going to burn in hell. She pretty much blew me off.’‘

Many of his friends didn’t know precisely what he did for a living. He had told them only that he worked in a clinic.

“I don’t hit people over the head with it,” he says. ‘‘I don’t go to a party and say, ‘Boy, I did a tough abortion today.’‘’

There have been no militant anti-abortion protests outside Bundy’s clinics in the 16 months since the story ran, but lately he has witnessed a rise in small prayer groups.

“They sit or stand in front of the clinic and pray, or at least that’s what they say they’re doing,” Bundy says.

“They don’t directly harass the clients . . . and they’re not screaming or chanting, though they occasionally carry signs.”

They come once a week or so, with usually four to 10 people at a time.

Bundy thinks anti-abortion fervor has subsided – given the Florida Supreme Court ruling affirming a constitutional right to privacy and the retention of Chief Justice Leander Shaw, who wrote that opinion.

He cites national polls that show people largely disapprove of the tactics employed by such anti-abortion groups as Operation Rescue.

“They’re going way too far,” he says. “I think, ultimately, their actions will have a negative effect on support for the religious right.”

Still, Bundy gets letters warning him that he has a made an enemy of God.

Bundy answers now as he always has.

“Well,” he says, “most of the people I admire are in, or are going to, hell. And I look forward to joining them.”

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan
