TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey's Board of Medical Examiners has stripped an abortion doctor accused of violating state laws of his final medical license.

The board voted unanimously to revoke Steven Brigham's license at its meeting Wednesday.

The revocation means that he will lose his eight abortion clinics in New Jersey.

Brigham was cited for starting late-term abortions in New Jersey and finishing them in Maryland in violation of the laws of both states.

He has also lost or given up his licenses to practice medicine in California, Florida, Pennsylvania and New York.

The Philadelphia Inquirer (http://bit.ly/1rZlM4t ) reports Brigham told the board he was "a good doctor" who did not deserve to have his license taken away.

He can appeal the decision in court.
