Abortionists Face More Legal Woes In Three States

Los Angeles, CA – Abortionists in three states are feeling the heat as legal woes continue to mount.

Andrew Rutland, California

In California, a lawsuit has been filed against abortionist Andrew Rutland for malpractice and wrongful death in the case of Ying Chen who died in 2009 during a botched abortion at a filthy and ill-equipped acupuncture clinic in San Gabriel. The suit was filed by Chen’s boyfriend, Zixiang Hu, on behalf of their 2-year-old daughter after the coroner’s office reclassified Chen’s death as a homicide.

The California Medical Board has been after Rutland for months and recently amended their disciplinary petition against him to reflect the fact that Chen’s death is now officially a homicide. It is hoped that this will help the Board gain a permanent revocation of Rutland’s medical license when it meets to consider his shoddy abortion practices in February, 2010.

Alberto Hodari, Michigan

Michigan abortionist Alberto Hodari is the subject of a lawsuit filed last week by the Thomas More Society of Chicago for the release of government documents explaining why Hodari was never disciplined for the illegal dumping of the human remains of aborted babies in 2008.

Monica Miller of the Citizens for a Pro-Life Society discovered the remains of aborted children in dumpsters outside several of Hodari’s Detroit-area abortion mills along with private patient medical records. Hodari was placed on probation for illegal dumping of medical records, but was never disciplined for the illegal disposal of human remains.

Hodari faces possible disciplinary action after Caitlin Bruce filed a complaint with the Michigan medical board over an abortion Hodari forced on her in 2008. Bruce has also sued Hodari over her horrific ordeal where she says she changed her mind about the abortion and tried to leave, but was held down by a male assistant while Hodari forced the abortion on her. Additional malpractice suits are also pending against Hodari.

Hodari also recently divorced and has placed all of his seven abortion clinics up for sale.

Rapin Osathanondh, Massachusetts

Abortionist Rapin Osathanondh faces trial for manslaughter on September 7, 2010, in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, nearly 3 years to the day after he killed Laura Hope Smith during a botched abortion. Osathanondh’s Hyannis abortion mill was understaffed and ill-equipped for emergencies when Ms. Smith suffered complications to the powerful anesthesia that the abortionist improperly used. She died at the clinic.

Operation Rescue worked with Laura’s mother, Eileen Smith, to bring Osathanondh to justice. Since then, Osathanondh has surrendered his medical license and closed his two abortion clinics.

Please join Operation Rescue in praying for strength for the Smith family during this trial and that Osathanondh will be properly brought to justice in that court of law.
