Abortion Practitioner in California Loses Medical License for Falsifying Reports

Los Angeles, CA (LifeNews.com) — An abortion practitioner in California, Nolan Jones, has lost his medical license after the state medical board determined he falsified medical reports. The California Medical Board revoked the license, effective April 20, after determining Jones falsified the medical records of two non-abortion patients.
The board also said Jones violated the probation put on his license based on other charges.
Operation Rescue, the pro-life group which has been monitoring Jones’ problems, says Jones has been disciplined at least four times by the California Medical Board for offenses ranging from botched abortions to negligence during childbirth that led to the death of a baby after birth.
Jones’ problems were so problematic that Community Hospital in San Bernardino terminated his hospital privileges in 1997.
OR president Troy Newman told LifeNews.com that the medical board’s decision "follows a national trend of abortionists being held accountable to the law."
"Jones was one of the most incompetent and dishonest abortionists in the country, and that is saying a lot," Newman added. "His license should have been taken years ago."
Newman says Jones operated abortion businesses in minority communities to take advantage of Hispanic and African-American women.
When he got in trouble or fell behind on bills, he would close up his clinics and reopen in another location under a new name, such as La Rose, The Butterfly Clinic, Women’s Center Medical Group, Clinica Medica Latina Femina, and Clinica Medica Para La Mujer De Hoy.
At the Clinica Medica Para La Mujer De Hoy Jones worked with Bertha Bugarin, who was recently sentenced to three years and four months in prison on charges of pretending to be a physician and doing abortions without a medical license.
Of the six abortion businesses Jones allegedly purchased from Bugarin, Newman tells LifeNews.com that all but one location has closed. That location is now being operated by two other abortion practitioners.
Newman also indicates that Jones had also racked up a staggering amount of financial liability and unpaid bills, declaring bankruptcy in 2003 with approximately 100 creditors and nearly $100,000 in credit card debt.
At one point a pro-life supporter observed an eviction notice in the back seat of Jones’ car. Jones appeared to be homeless and sleeping inside his abortion centers.
"That man’s life was train wreck," said Newman. "We pray for Jones’ repentance and salvation, but as far as his abortion career goes, it is good riddance."
