In late 2012 and throughout 2013, we’ve chronicled the case of abortionist Robert Alexander. 

In later 2012, the Women’s Medical Services abortion clinic in Muskegon was shut down by Muskegon Fire Department due to the filthy conditions in the clinic.  After a series of WOOD TV investigative reports revealed how complaints against Alexander were ignored, Michigan legislators moved to change how complaints against doctors are dealt with. 

robertalexanderGena Rinckey has now discovered that the Michigan Attorney General’s office, on behalf of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, has filed a complaint against Alexander for the conditions at his now closed abortion clinic.

On November 14, 2013, Michigan’s Assistant Attorney General, Debra M. Gagliardi, filed an Administrative Complaint against Dr. Alexander for incompetence.  All of this relates to the 2012 closure of the Woman’s Health Services clinic in Muskegon.

“Incompetence” is defined under MCL 333.16106(1) (Michigan law) as, “a departure from, or failure to conform to, minimal standards of acceptable and prevailing practice for a health profession, whether or not actual injury to an individual occurs.”



The complaint also indicates that unsecured narcotics were on the premises in Muskegon, and that Dr. Alexander was unable to locate the drug log book. He itemized and returned unused drugs salvaged from the premises at a later date.
