The East Village doctor was convicted of performing an illegal third-trimester abortion in which he severed the arm of a fetus. The doctor was the first person convicted of conducting an illegal abortion in New York State in more than a decade.

In Feb of 1993, after four and a half days of deliberation, a jury in State Supreme Court in Manhattan found Dr. Abu Hayat guilty of assault on Rosa Rodriguez and her baby, Ana Rosa. He was also convicted of two counts of assault on another patient.

In her testimony Rodriguez describes how she was strapped in stirrups and held down by Hayat and his assistants while she pleaded with him to stop the abortion. She testified that she changed her mind about the abortion after Hayat stuck a four inch needle inside her stomach which she claims was dirty, and that she could hear other women in the clinic screaming. She asked the abortionist why the women were screaming and she testified he responded, “Not everyone can pay for anesthesia.”
