A Georgia medical board quietly gave back a medical license to a notorious late-term abortionist after he allegedly killed a woman in a botched abortion and defrauded Medicaid of hundreds of thousands of dollars, a local news investigation found.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports abortionist Tyrone C. Malloy has had his medical license since October when the Georgia Composite Medical Board reinstated it.
The newspaper described the move as “the latest example of the extraordinary deference shown to physicians by the state panel that regulates medical doctors.”
It is unclear if or where Malloy now may be practicing his deadly abortion trade. He used to work at Old National GYN in College Park, Georgia.
Malloy spent almost two years in prison for fraudulently billing Medicaid more than $386,000; it was then that he lost his medical license. A jury found him guilty of receiving reimbursements for elective abortions that are not supposed to be funded by tax dollars and ultrasounds that he never performed. A Georgia grand jury indicted Malloy on Medicaid fraud charges in 2011.
He also faced sanctions and a $10,000 fine after a woman died along with her unborn baby in a botched late-term abortion in 2009. According to the report, the woman was six-months pregnant at the time.
Here’s more from the report:
In October, the Composite Medical Board quietly reinstated Malloy’s license, which he surrendered while incarcerated. Instead of issuing a public board order that would have been posted on its website, as is typically done when a doctor’s license had been surrendered or revoked, the only public record of the board’s decision was a line in that month’s meeting minutes.
This month, in response to what it says were numerous inquiries about how Malloy has an active license, the board issued a public order “clarifying” that it’s been reinstated.
Medical malpractice attorney Susan Witt said the move shows, once again, that Georgia’s medical regulators care more about protecting fellow physicians’ livelihoods than protecting the public.

“This composite board never fails to shock me,” Witt said. “It’s consumer beware in Georgia, in terms of when you are out there looking for a doctor.”
The board’s 16 members — 13 of whom are doctors — are under no obligation to explain their decisions, and Georgia law even bars them from discussing cases.
Malloy continues to claim he is innocent. He even went so far as to claim pro-life advocates are behind a “vicious conspiracy” to destroy his reputation because he is an abortionist.
As Human Events noted previously, Malloy has had numerous malpractice issues:
In 1999, one of his patients lost a baby shortly after birth, according to Georgia Composite Medical Board records. The Composite State Board of Medical Examiners determined that the woman had not received proper treatment. Malloy was publicly reprimanded, ordered to receive additional training and fined $5,000, according to the records.
In 2008, he received another public reprimand, was ordered to receive even more training and fined $10,000 after one of his patients died shortly after a botched abortion, according to the Medical Board records.
Malloy has ties to former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who served in the Obama administration. Holder’s wife owned the property of one of the abortion facilities where Malloy practiced.
