Doctor Who Killed “Wrong” Unborn Twin Has License Revoked
LifeSiteNews ^ | 4/12/10 | James Tillman

TAMPA, Florida, April 12, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- The Florida Board of Medicine has revoked the medical license of a Sarasota doctor who killed the “wrong” unborn baby in a "selective reduction" procedure.

Selective reduction is a procedure in which a doctor kills one or more of multiple unborn children by injecting a feticide into the fetus slated to be aborted.  Its use has increased because of modern fertility treatments, which often result in women carrying multiple babies.

In 2006, Dr. Matthew Kuchinas attempted to kill one of two twins because it had Down syndrome and a possible heart defect, despite the fact that he had never performed the selective reduction procedure before. He found out a week after performing the procedure that he aborted the wrong fetus; the other child was killed shortly thereafter.

According to Health News Florida, he defended himself by stating that his patient knew he had never done the technique before and that he hated to tell patients "no." Kachinas has also said that there must have been a problem with the ultrasound machine he was using to target one of the fetuses.

Such testimony was found unpersuasive, and the Florida Board of Medicine revoked Kachinas' license last weekend. He has now been involuntarily hospitalized after telling a reporter that he intended to kill himself.

Kachinas had also been charged with two, less-serious offenses.  In 2002 he attempted to smuggle the anesthesia drug Propofol with him when going to his job in Tampa by taping vials to his legs beneath his pants.  He said that the clinic did not keep it in stock and he preferred that drug to others.

In 2004 he allegedly falsified records by claiming that an aborted fetus had died naturally.

Dr. Kachinas had also previously been accused of headbutting pro-life protestor Linda McGlade after she attempted to speak to him peacefully.

Nothing looks so much like a fetus as another fetus...

"selective reduction" procedure

The next time one of the illegal invaders or a gang member murders someone, they can simply claim it was a "selective reduction" procedure. Dear God, what have we become?

I hope the mother became sterile because of this, she doesn’t deserve to have a child.

by injecting a feticide into the fetus slated to be aborted.

So, an unborn baby is no more than a pest to be exterminated.

Abortion is indeed nothing more than a modern day holocaust, and they're admitting it with that kind of terminology.

The “mother” of the dead babies is the monster to me. She didn’t want her perfect world disturbed by an imferfect child, even though MDs are very often wrong about early diagnoses, and the “normal” child could have had an amazing bond with the Down’s child as twins. Now they are both dead, since the “mother” compounded the horrible tragedy by having the Down’s child killed anyway. Put down like a rabid animal. She makes me sick. Too bad we can’t revoke her childbearing license.

Must be a special lethal poison which does not cross back into the placenta. Just imagine that there is a company somewhere who came up with that, and lab and factory workers who produce it. Remembering Zyklon-B, it would be fitting it Bayer is the maker of this "feticide". Horrible.

I hope you finished planting the roses in your garden in memory of those babies! How that woman can’t help but think of the other two dead babies every time she looks at the one who survived?! I pray she realizes what she did and asked God’s forgiveness!

The doctor and the parents all sicken me. They all knew the procedure would be dangerous for the “wanted” one. I mean you’re poking around the womb with a poisonous needle...

Although I hate to say this, but I actually also think it’s odd to have the doctor lose his license after one mistake. The reported fact that it was his first time is kind of goofy since a doctor has to have a first time for every type surgery he’s ever going to do.
