Last year, LifeNews reported the story of the Michigan abortion practitioner who was caught with what local police believe were 14 plastic containers that possibly contain the bodies of aborted babies along with other human tissue. Local police raided the upscale West Bloomfield, Michigan home of abortionist Michael Roth after acting on evidence that Roth may be performing illegal abortions — doing abortions either out of his home or in the private homes of his customers.
After the raid, police found, in the trunk of Roth’s car, medical equipment used for abortion procedures. Investigators confiscated medical “materials” in bags and boxes at Roth’s home. Roth is now under investigation by the Michigan Attorney General.
As Right to Life of Michigan notes on its web site today, Roth has been charged Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has announced that abortionist Michael Roth has been charged with “possession with intent to deliver schedule 2 narcotic Fentanyl and 6 counts of identity theft.”
After a car accident, authorities discovered the drugs in his car.
According to the press release, Dr. Angel Ojeda, another abortionist who Roth sometimes worked for, had drugs stolen from his abortion clinic in 2014.
Medical records indicate that Roth sometimes worked out of Dr. Ojeda’s clinic. Dr. Ojeda and the women whose names were listed on the prescriptions alleged they had no knowledge of the prescriptions. Dr. Ojeda also stated that a large amount of Fentanyl was stolen from his office in December 2014. When interviewed, Ojeda stated he had never given Roth permission to have Fentanyl or Ciprofloxacin from his clinic, a statement which was corroborated by a clinic employee. A separate medical assistant employed at the Eastland Women’s Center allegedly admitted to stealing medical equipment and medications used in abortions from the clinic for Roth and that he was fully aware the materials were stolen.
Other evidence seems to indicate Roth was performing abortions outside the clinic and possibly in the homes of women.
A search warrant was completed on Roth’s home and office. Additional vials of Fentanyl were found at the home. Both the Fentanyl found in the car and in the house were matched to the Fentanyl that was allegedly stolen from the women’s clinic. The search warrant also revealed a large amount of cash with names and what is believed to be pregnancy information attached to each bundle of cash, medical materials such as syringes, disposable scalpels and empty containers similar to the ones filled with post-conception material found in Roth’s car.
Roth was featured in Right to Life of Michigan’s report on Abortion Abuses and State Regulatory Agency Failure. That report noted how Roth received six months probation after performing at least two abortions on a woman in her home, was disciplined for various drug-related violations, violated Michigan’s informed consent law and allegedly performed abortions after 24 weeks.
