Abortionist accused of cannibalism has license revoked only because of public pressure

Topeka, KS — The Kansas State Board of Healing Arts moved Saturday, June 11, to permanently revoke the medical license of Krishna Rajanna, the Kansas City abortionist accused of cannibalism in his filthy, rat-infested abortion mill. Rajanna’s abortion clinic has been closed for the past three months.

Photographs obtained by pro-lifers revealed appalling conditions that included blood-soaked carpeting in procedure rooms and improperly sterilized surgical instruments, which were stored next to a blood-stained open toilet where aborted baby parts were allegedly flushed. Clinic employees told a Kansas City Police Detective that Rajanna had been seen mixing aborted baby parts into his lunch.

In February, the KSBHA fined Rajanna a mere $1,000 after considering the case for nearly two years. Pressure brought by pro-life groups, including Operation Rescue, during debate on a bill that would have required abortion mills be regulated spurred the KSBHA to suspend Rajanna’s medical license in March. Rajanna’s abortion mill closed soon after.

The decision to revoke Rajanna’s license came after the Board determined that Rajanna could not practice medicine unsupervised.

“This decision is a long time coming,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “But it is important to note that if public pressure had not been brought to bear, nothing would have happened to this man and his filthy abortion mill would still be in operation.”

“The Kansas Board of Healing Arts has shown that it has far too many political ties to the abortion lobby and that these political arrangements are crippling the Board’s ability to act swiftly to protect the public,” said Newman. “Making Rajanna the ‘sacrificial lamb’ to show they are capable of doing their jobs only emphasizes how corrupt the system has become. They have shown that they will cover their backsides, but will do nothing more. Meanwhile unsafe conditions continue to exist at other Kansas abortion mills and the responsibility for this lies directly at the feet of the KSBHA and abortion lackey Gov. Sebelius.”

Newman challenged the Kansas Board of Healing Arts to revoke he license of abortionist George Tiller during the investigation of a January 13, 2005, death of an abortion patient. “If the KBHA is truly dedicated to securing excellent health care in Kansas, then they should ban Tiller from practicing medicine until they can determine the true cause of death for the January 13 patient.”
