Operation Rescue says it has been notified by the Michigan Department of Community Health in two letters that abortionist Abraham Alberto Hodari is officially under investigation by the Bureau of Health Profession for his involvement in forced abortions.
The complaint against Hodari was filed by Operation Rescue President Troy Newman after receiving information about a lawsuit filed by Caitlin Bruce, alleging that Hodari committed a forced abortion on her in 2008, after she withdrew her consent. Bruce stated that she changed her mind about having the abortion after she viewed an image of her pre-born baby on an ultrasound imaging screen.
Newman’s complaint also referenced a 20-year-old case involving a then-16-year-old girl who came forward last year to tell of her abortion by Hodari that she says he forced upon her under false pretenses. Jennifer McCoy filed her own complaint against Hodari saying that she went to his office for what she believed was a routine pre-natal check-up for a wanted pregnancy when she was forcibly aborted. The fact that she had become pregnant by a 40-year-old high school teacher was also never reported to authorities, as is required by law.
“These cases show a twenty year history of abuse by Hodari. Couple that with public statements he has made indicating he believes he has a ‘license to lie,’ and we have a recipe for disaster as far as women and their babies are concerned,” said Newman. “We are grateful that there is now an investigation underway. We pray that Hodari, who has menaced women for over 20 years, will finally be stripped of his medical license.”
Hodari was placed on probation last February for illegally dumping medical records. In March, he was fined $10,000 for his part in the death of Regina Johnson. Hodari has been involved in at least three additional abortion deaths.
In November, Hodari put his abortion clinics on the market along with his collection of expensive classic cars and hastily filed for divorce from his wife of 29 years. Local activists told Operation Rescue that it appeared that he was attempting to liquidate his assets so he could flee the country, possibly to his former home in Argentina.
