Suspended abortion docs dukes it out with pro-lifers outside hearing room
An abortion doc whose license was just suspended after the state health department found abysmal conditions at his Michigan abortion clinic went head to head with pro-life leaders outside the hearing room.
According to a report by Operation Rescue, Abortionist Robert Alexander appeared before the Michigan Board of Medicine this week for a final hearing on charges of gross negligence and incompetence after he was caught operating a squalid abortion facility in Muskegon that rivaled conditions found at Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia “House of Horror.”
Despite the fact that an administrative judge found that Alexander, who suffers from mental illness, was not fit to practice medicine and recommended his permanent license revocation, the Board voted to suspend Alexander’s license for 6 months and 1 day. They also told Alexander that he would have to re-apply to have his license reinstated, at which time he would be required to pay a fine of $75,000.
If Alexander does not reapply for licensing, his license would not be automatically renewed after his suspension and he would continue to be barred from practicing in Michigan. ( read more here)
Outside the hearing room, the abortion doctor accused pro-lifers of using inside connections to close his clinics down. Pro-life leaders had an angry response, “May I remind you that it was the Fire Marshall that shut the building down,” one of them stated, “It had nothing to do with the Board of Medicine or the State investigators.”
When asked about the accusations by former patients that he had botched abortions he responded, “Botched abortions is when they are done wrong. Every patient is handled with care. Every patient is handled with delicate gloves, “ Alexander told a WoodTV8 reporter.
To avoid further questions by the news media, Alexander said, “Let me go, okay? I gotta go, I got to go to see some patients right...”
He was then asked by eh reporter, “How can you see patients, you don’t have a license?”
The conversation which clearly shows how confused this abortion doctor is has been uploaded in full by WoodTV8:
Here the abortionist blames the death of his wife who died this year on harassment by pro-lifers but then he later calls the people from Right to Life, “good people.”
He also elaborates on why he can still practice telling the reporter that the revocation of suspension order isn’t in effect yet.
The pro-lifers then respond to his accusations that they placed someone inside his office to get him closed down.
That accusation is based on an article published by Life News in 2012.
Pro-life activist Lynn Mills explains that one of Alexander’s staffers wanted out of the abortion business so she contacted Abby Johnson’s group. Mills says that Johnson put the former clinic worker in touch with Operation Rescue who asked her if she wanted to file a complaint against the clinic.
It is no secret for officials to use former employees to gather inside information or complaints about people doing illegal or unprofessional activities which cause harm to the public. Alexander just needs to face the facts, he did this to himself and there is no one else to blame.
