In an effort to avoid license revocation, Timothy Liveright, a former abortionist at Planned Parenthood of Delaware, has reached a consent agreement with the Delaware Board of Licensure and Discipline.
The Board plans to release the agreement only after it is approved by the full Board in January, 2014.
Liveright was charged by the Board in May with multiple counts of incompetence and negligence related to abortions done on five women between February and March, 2013, noting that he posed a “clear and immediate danger to the public.” Other charges included over-medicating patents, doing unnecessary surgical procedures, and failing to properly monitor patients and provide appropriate emergency care. The charges were likely based on complaints filed by Operation Rescue.
In February, Operation Rescue was the first to reveal an alarming trend of abortion-related medical emergencies at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Wilmington. In March, Operation Rescue also released video footage of an attack on a peaceful pro-life grandmother at the same location, which went viral and was shown on national news programs before being removed by Youtube.com. That event drew national attention to the abortion clinic and prompted two clinic employees, Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich and Joyce Vasikonis, to come forward and describe before the Delaware Legislature the horrific conditions, negligent practices, and sexual harassment that existed at that clinic.
Operation Rescue assisted with ABC Action News investigation that documented the Wilmington clinic’s conditions. The shocking news report proves the unsanitary practices at this Planned Parenthood were no different than those inside Kermit Gosnell’s squalid “House of Horrors” in Philadelphia.
Planned Parenthood closed both of their Delaware abortion clinics for weeks for “cleaning and re-staffing” but have since reopened.
Liveright was accused by the former Planned Parenthood workers of sexual harassment and slapping women on the leg during abortions. He was said to have played “peek-a-boo” with a women in the process of an abortion with another abortionists in addition to his slovenly and dangerous abortion practices
“While we believe that Liveright’s offenses warrant license revocation, we are hopeful that the consent agreement will include a very lengthy license suspension and heavy fine,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “His behavior was out of control and completely unacceptable. We also hope he takes time to avail himself of the services of a mental health professional and a spiritual counselor during this disciplinary term. We look forward to viewing the terms of this consent agreement when it becomes available in January.”
