Michigan abortionist Robert Alexander, whose Muskegon abortion facility was shut down by the fire marshal after horrific conditions were discovered there,is facing the possibility of losing his medical license.
One of his former abortion clients is hoping that happens. She says the abortion Alexander did on her that took her unborn baby’s life also left her infertile and she’s upset the botched abortion left her unable to have children.
From a local news report:
One former patient — a 34-year-old Muskegon County woman who says Alexander’s bad medicine left her unable to have children — wonders why it is taking so long to revoke his license.
“I would say shame on you to every single one of them and way to go doing your job because not one of them did,” the woman, who asked not to be identified, said of state officials. “If they did, not one of us would be in this position.”
“He stole the most important ability that a woman can possibly possess, and I won’t get that back, but they can reward him by still giving him a license. It’s unbelievable,” she continued.
Alexander is scheduled to appear before the state Board of Medicine Disciplinary Subcommittee on Nov. 19 to determine whether he should face discipline, which could include revoking his license.
“I don’t understand how the State of Michigan can let someone like that continue to practice. I mean, we do something as simple as run a stop sign or two, get a couple of speeding tickets, and you get your driver’s license taken away, but this awesome state lets someone like that have a license to continue procedures on human beings,” she said.
The Muskegon County woman said she saw Alexander in 2011 when she was 31 because she believed she was pregnant. She said the doctor gave her two pills and then performed a procedure. She’s still not sure she was really pregnant, she said, or what kind of procedure he performed.
Not long after that, she was bleeding badly, she said. She went to the emergency room and had to undergo surgery and get a blood transfusion.
“He damaged my cervix that bad and damaged my uterus and everything else inside, and things aren’t the same at all,” she said. “Because of him and his poor practices, his bad procedures, I can no longer have children, and I have none at all, so I don’t get any.”
She is considering adoption.
“It sucks every time I go to the grocery store and I see someone playing with their kids, buying their kids something; every time I go to the beach, see them playing with their kids; anytime I go to the mall, see someone buying their kids stuff,” she said. “Yeah, it hurts. It hurts.”
The Attorney General’s office is seeking sanctions against Alexander, which should include license revocation.
“Alexander is an abortionist of the same ilk as Pennsylvania’s Kermit Gosnell. He should not have been able to continue as long as he did. The fact that the Attorney General’s office is prosecuting this case to the fullest extent extremely welcome and is long overdue,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.
Operation Rescue staff filed a complaint against Alexander based on information supplied by a confidential informant that referenced the shocking conditions at Alexander’s Women’s Medical Center that were later discovered by police.
Photos released by the Muskegon Police Department, which were obtained by Operation Rescue, documented the grisly discovery of filthy conditions that perhaps surpassed those found at Kermit Gosnell’s West Philadelphia “House of Horrors.”
The photos showed a trash-strewn filthy building with garbage piled up next to a procedure table along with unsterilized surgical equipment. The roof was moldy and leaky with buckets were set out to catch the water. Also pictured was rusty suction machine still containing the putrefied remains of the last abortion done at that office.
Alexander has a long history of troubles, including a botched abortions — one that nearly killed a patient. In 1990, Alexander’s medical license was revoked and he spent time in a Federal prison for selling illegal prescriptions. In 1994, Alexander was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation and his license was once again revoked. A former head of the State Board of Medicine, Dr. George Shade, helped Alexander get his license back then refused to investigate complaints lodged by another physician concerning horrifically botched abortions done by Alexander.
That case prompted Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker to introduce legislation that would require three board members to review complaints as a safeguard against further corruption.
“The evidence is clear that [Alexander] should not have a license and it’s only a failure of the system that really allows him to still practice today,” said Sen. Schuitmaker.
Currently, Alexander’s license remains active, but he thankfully is currently unemployed.
