Abortionist’s license suspended

A Utah abortionist had her Maryland medical license suspended this week after accusations that she had botched a late-term abortion, resulting in the perforation of the patient’s uterus and other damages.

The abortionist attempted to apply for a medical license in Virginia but the Maryland medical board made sure that Virginia authorities knew about her past history.

“We took open record documents that included interviews with her that were conducted by the medical board in Maryland, and we sent all of those open record documents to the state of Virginia,” a spokesperson for the Maryland board said.


Octomom’s doctor could lose medical license

The California Medical Board filed an official complaint against fertility specialist Dr. Michael Kamrava, the physician who implanted embryos into Nadya Suleman, also known as “Octomom” to the media.

Suleman gave birth to octuplets in January 2009, following the implantation of embryos in her by Dr. Kamrava. The board complaint states that Dr. Kamrava should have referred Suleman to a psychiatrist when she stated that she wished to add to her brood of six. The board also names another woman on whom Dr. Kamrava negligently performed embryo implantations.

The hearing next Monday could lead to the revocation or suspension of Dr. Kamrava’s medical license.
