Five More Texas Abortionists Scheduled for Hearings on Abortion Abuses

Austin, TX – Operation Rescue has been informed that the Texas Medical Board (TMB) has scheduled five more abortionists to appear at Informal Show Compliance and Settlement Conferences based on complaints of abortion abuses made by Operation Rescue. The complaints were the result of a three-month undercover investigation conducted by Operation Rescue with the assistance of The Survivors.

Robert L. Prince, Margaret Kouril Kini, Pedro J. Kowalyszyn, H. Brook Randal, and Sherwood C. Lynn are scheduled to appear before the TMB on July 25, 2012, beginning at 11:00 AM. Operation Rescue’s complaints included evidence of numerous violations, including the illegal dumping of private patient medical records, violations of the informed consent laws, and failure to report suspected child sex abuse.

In all ten abortionists, known as the “Texas Ten”, have been summoned for hearings by the TMB.

Last month, the TMB disciplined two abortionists from the troubled Whole Women’s Heath abortion chain, Alan H. Molson and Robert E. Hanson, based on Operation Rescue complaints. Molson, 60, and Hanson, 72, both admitted before the Board to conduct that constituted violations of the standards of patient care. Each were fined $3,000 and ordered to take continuing medical education classes in risk management.

Also as a result of Operation Rescue complaints, Whole Women’s Health in Austin and McAllen, along with the waste disposal company Stericycle, were fined $83,000 for the illegal dumping of identifiable remains of aborted babies.

“During our undercover investigation of abortion clinics in Texas, we did not find a single abortion clinic that complied with the law,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. “There is now an official record that Whole Women’s Health and other abortion businesses in Texas have broken the law. But our investigation revealed just the tip of the iceberg. This problem of abortion clinics violating health codes, standards of patient care, and even criminal statutes is prevalent at abortion clinics in every state.”

Abortionists Franz Theard and Douglas A. Karpen are also facing Board discipline. Their hearings have been set for May 16, 2012.
