Are you off of break yet?
The abortion clinic was in Dallas, Texas and this happened in the 1970s. A TV station heard that some unethical things were going on at this center, and sent women in undercover who KNEW they were not pregnant because they had been sterilized or even had hysterectomies, and this place was shut down. I do not know if anyone went to prison, or even had their licenses revoked or suspended.
One of the near-CABG patients who appeared on "60 Minutes" said he was in the anteroom awaiting surgery, and the nurse whispered in his ear, "You need a second opinion" and convinced him to sign out AMA and do so, acknowledging that if she was caught, she would be fired on the spot. The doctor with whom he consulted for that second opinion told this man that he was the third patient he had seen that week from this hospital who had been told that, and IIRC, if anyone was discovered to have died from an unnecessary operation, the doctor was going to be charged with first-degree murder.
The hospital administrators hadn't asked too many questions about this doctor because he brought so much money into the hospital. BTW, it was a Tenet hospital which is a for-profit chain; to me, that explains a lot. I'm sure I could find plenty of links if I went looking for them.
A lot of fertility doctors also are of the mind that they will treat anyone who walks in the door as long as the money is green. Too many people have been exploited in this manner.
What about Robert Courtney, the black mark on my profession who didn't put any drugs in his IV bags and who knows how many people died because of this bottom-feeder?
