Practitioner Arrested, Violated Ruling Suspending Medical
License by Steven Ertelt (LifeNews.com
Miramar, FL (LifeNews.com) -- A Florida abortion

perform abortion procedures. After a warrant was issued for his
arrest, Robelto A. Osborne turned himself into local police last
Osborne, 44, was released on bond
after being processed by Miramar police last Wednesday, according to
an Associated Press report. He was charged with a third degree
felony of performing medicine without a license.
Despite his status, Osborne had
been performing abortions at the A Gyn Diagnostic Center
abortion business in Miramar.
State records reveal Osborne was
stripped of his license after botching several abortions,
including one where parts of the unborn baby were left inside
the mother. He failed to perform pre-operation procedures on
several women and did not treat one woman's severe uterine
infection that could have led to her death.
AP also reported that Osborne was
also found not returning phone calls to his emergency phone line
by women who had abortions and were experiencing severe pain or

suspension of his license and a $7,000 fine, which he did not
Police also have a warrant out

having a medical license.
According to the AP report, the
Florida Department of Health was notified about Osborne's
abortions in a mid-November tip.
Police temporarily closed the
abortion facility on December 15 to execute a search warrant.
Before performing abortions there, Osborne was an abortion
practitioner at A Woman's Choice Clinic in Miami Lakes.
State health records also reveal
Osborne botched an abortion on a woman in 1996 at a Hialeah
abortion facility. The woman was treated at a local hospital to
repair damage to her small intestine.

Business Owner Who Injured Woman Shuts Down California Facility
(LifeNews.com) -- An abortion business owner who was the
subject of a lawsuit after a woman was injured by a botched
abortion says he will be shutting down one of his southern
California abortion facilities for lack of business.
Joseph Durante said Friday that the only facility he operates in
the High Desert area has closed. "It wasn't feasible," he said
of the Victory Valley abortion business. He told the Desert
Dispatch newspaper that he would continue to operate his Palm
Desert abortion facility.
Durante was the subject of a
lawsuit filed by a woman who was injured in a botched abortion.
Durante was accused of not providing adequate follow-up care
after a botched abortion that perforated the uterus of Ann Marie
Santana in 1998 performed at his abortion facility. The abortion
also perforated her uterus and bowel and Santana was forced to
have emergency surgery as a result. Santana reached a settlement
with John Allen, who performed the abortion. Her attorney, Jack
Schuler, said Santana was pleased with the terms of the
settlement, but the lawsuit against Durante has not been
resolved. Durante has run afoul of the state medical board on
several occasions. He was once placed on probation by the
Medical Board of California.

Brookline, MA -- The shop talk at Planned
Parenthood and Women’s “Health” Services — we have our sources! — is that the
government has shut down Howard Silverman’s abortion mill chain, which
includes Repro in Brookline and WomanCare in New Bedford and Hyannis, MA.
This dovetails with our own investigation that has
revealed years-long, and ever increasing federal and State tax liens
against this baby-killing enterprise. They now owe well over $150,000 — not a lot
for a rapid-fire, profitable child-killer, but evidently they were not
profitable. Security guards in New Bedford had complained of not being paid,
and business there was cut to biweekly. In Brookline, they eliminated one
killing day per week, and the volume was down on other days, too, compared to

Wichita, KS -- Abortion practitioner Kristin Neuhaus announced Thursday
she will no longer perform abortions. Neuhaus had been charged by state
investigators with performing an abortion on a woman who had withdrawn consent.
Neuhaus has denied the allegation through her attorney.
"This is a major victory for the pro-life movement and women in Kansas.
Neuhaus not only was killing babies in Wichita, but she was also performing bad
medicine," noted Kansans for Life Executive Director Joan Hawkins.

hospital according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (May 4, 2001).
However, because the estate of Linda Boom was late in filing its lawsuit against

was dismissed as a defendant in the suit and is not liable for any of the $2.3
million the jury felt would fairly compensate Boom's family.
APR 9, 2001 — The Sunday Boston Herald carried the news of the result of
Dr. Rapin Osathanondh’s show cause hearing in Boston: there will be
— surprise! — no charges brought against the Brigham and Women’s
Hospital abortionist for his alleged threats to execute several nurses.
The decision not to prosecute was reportedly due to inconsistent
testimony and lack of evidence. Unanswered is the question of whether
the fact that the accused is an abortionist carried any weight with the
court—somehow we find it hard to believe that a pro-lifer would have
been given a pass in similar circumstances.
APR 2, 2001 -- World
magazine on Dr. John Hamilton, the Oklahoma City abortionist accused
of murdering his wife. Oklahoma City physician Dominic Pedulla believes
the brutality of abortion penetrates the abortionist's soul, rendering
him capable of other brutal acts. "The abortionist lives an
intrinsically violent lifestyle [that isn't] sanitized because the
doctor is making a nice living, dresses well, and lives in an upper
social stratum," said Dr. Pedulla."
FEB 22, 2001 — Dr. Joel Biskind, a Phoenix, AZ
abortionist was convicted February 20 of manslaughter in the 1998 death
of one of his clients at his now-closed A-Z Women’s Center abortion
facility. Dr. Biskind left the abortion mill as his patient, whose
just-aborted baby was 24 weeks old, lay bleeding from the punctured
uterus that the doctor had caused. Sentencing is scheduled for March 20.
The Oklahoman newspaper
that a "prominent
Oklahoma City doctor was arrested Wednesday [Feb. 21] after police found
a woman’s body in his home." Dr. John Hamilton, 52 — an
abortionist — was booked into the Oklahoma County jail Wednesday night
on a murder complaint. The body was that of Susan Hamilton, his wife.
The Oklahoman report continued: "Diane McDaniel was John
Hamilton’s patient for 20 years. ‘If asked if he could do it, I’d
say there is no way he could have killed anything,’ she said. ‘He is
a very kind man. I wouldn’t think he would hurt a fly.’"
A Boston abortionist, Dr. Rapin
Osathanondh, head of the
baby-killing department at Brigham and Women’s Hospital is out of
commission following complaints that he threatened five of the hospital’s
nurses in a December 27, 2000 staff meeting. He appeared at a February 13
probable cause hearing in Boston to answer these allegations. A decision
was not immediately made on whether to charge the doctor. Had a similar
threat been made by a pro-lifer, of course, you can be sure that the
decision making process would have been on fast forward.
The nurses said that he threatened them with the words: "I'm
going to execute people. I’m going to kill you. I’m going to execute
you, Texas-style." A police report says Osathanondh was suspended,
but Brigham & Women’s stated that he has voluntarily stepped down
pending resolution of the matter.

tissue. No attempt was noted on Nehorayoff's part to notify Patient E of
the incomplete abortion. She was later admitted to a hospital in a coma
and died an hour later. The autopsy found a portion of a fetal leg
sticking through Patient E's uterus, and determined that she had bled to
