Suspended Pa. Doctor Defends Abortion Clinic

Saturday, 27 Feb 2010 10:10 AM

 

A Philadelphia doctor whose medical license was suspended because of conditions at his Philadelphia abortion clinic says that he provides "the very best of responsive care."

Dr. Kermit Gosnell tells WTXF-TV that he offers "the same care that I would want my daughter to receive."

State medical authorities cited a recent patient death and "deplorable" conditions at Gosnell's clinic in suspending his license. Separately, a civil lawsuit settled in 2002 charged that a woman died from a botched abortion at his clinic.

Gosnell has not returned telephone messages left by The Associated Press.

The 69-year-old doctor has not been charged. He tells the TV station that he was unaware of dissatisfied patients and expects to be vindicated.
