The pro-life group Operation Rescue has uncovered new documentation in its new project uncovering cases of botched abortions and medical and legal negligence by abortion practitioners.

In the case, which has never before been revealed publicly, Nevada-based abortion practitioner Adam Vincent Levy, who works at A-Z Women’s Center in Las Vegas, settled a case in which he killed a woman a few years ago in a failed abortion.

According to public record documents obtained by, Levy paid out $20,000 last year in a case alleging his negligence in the death of a patient during a botched abortion in 2007. In 2007, Levy paid out a whopping $6 million to settle a 1995 case brought by the family of a brain-damaged child who suffered injuries as the result of Levy’s misinterpretation of ultrasound findings.

In 2004, Levy settled a personal injury case for $7,500 after he allegedly inflicted second and third degree burns to a patient’s private organs by inserting a hot weighted speculum during surgery.

In spite of all this, Levy has never been disciplined by medical regulators. In fact, he continues to train abortion practitioners at the University Medical Center in Las Vegas even though his abortion practices have proven deadly to at least one patient, says OR president Troy Newman.

“Abortionists have been able to hide their dirt until now, thanks to,” he said. “Finally, the truth is available to everyone. We are doing a public service by putting the documentation into the public forum so women can be warned about abortion abusers like Levy, who despite killing a woman, has flown under the radar of public and regulatory scrutiny.”

“Information about Levy’s malpractice history would never be readily available to the public without” the new web site, he added. “We continue to upload new documents daily, and are seeking those who can contribute more information to our database in order to make it as accurate and comprehensive as possible.”
