Abortion clinic sued

From the Associated Press...

A Jackson abortion clinic, which closed in 2004, has been ordered by a Hinds County judge to pay a $500,000 default judgment to a woman who claimed she was injured in a 2003 procedure by a doctor who has since lost his medical license....

The clinic closed in August 2004 after Dehenre, its only abortion physician, had his license suspended following the death of a patient in Alabama and was cited for malpractice in the cases of three other women, including Travis.

Both Alabama and Mississippi suspended Dehenre's medical license indefinitely. The state of New York also suspended Dehenre's medical license....

Travis, then 20, paid $680 for an abortion at the clinic, according to the lawsuit. She went to the clinic in March 2003 with her mother. The Jackson woman had at least one child already. Though she had planned to have more children later, according to the lawsuit, she had to have a hysterectomy after the procedure.

From what I understand this case is a tiny fraction of the tip of a very large iceberg of women butchered by an industry that is unlegislated and unmonitored. Any time anyone want to put health and safety requirement on abortion mills, the pro-death crowd screams that "choice" is being denied.
