Hyannis, MA (LifeNews.com) -- The abortion practitioner responsible for killing a young woman in a botched legal abortion has seen a state health board revoke his medical license. Laura Smith, a 22-year-old from Honduras, died in September after getting an abortion from Rapin Osathanondh at the Women Health Center abortion business.

Better to lose one woman during a botched abortion than to not allow millions to abort.

When conservatives stay home on general election day and allow Hillobama to become president, then abortionists who perform botched abortions will be given special dispensation from the white house.

Hey - he's not in jail, is he?

He lost his license to practice infanticide, like Teddy the K lost is license to be President.

It is actually so COMMON! Botched abortions. Parts of the baby left in the womb, infections, punctured wombs. The doctors who have to later work on these girls are lucky to save their lives, and the girls are lucky if they are not sterile now. It is a tragedy.

LifeSite is hopeless. Why are they relying on “Laura’s mother” as the sole cited source for their headline claim that this doctor’s medical license has been revoked? Medical license revocations are a matter of public record.

Of course the MSM would never say a word about that. Abortions are safer then pregnancy don’t cha know /sarc

Sad. Prayers to the poor girl’s family.

Its common because life is being violated.

It is like the candy chocolate scene in “I love Lucy” where one bad move wrecks the whole thing.

People are preventing a natural cycle and the human body is naturally reacting to the new change.
If you don’t want the baby give him/er up for adoption.
Abortions should only be allowed for rape victims or to save the mothers life(i.e car accident)
Crap happens
A baby isn’t a car you just simply throw out because it is “inconvenient.”

But - but - but...

Abortion supporters told us women that when abortion was legal it would be SAFE, and this kind of thing would never happen!

Surely they wouldn’t LIE to us!

Abortions put a huge strain on the body and there are psychological consequences as well.

"The abortion practitioner responsible for killing a young woman in a botched legal abortion..."

Wouldn't a "botched" abortion be one in which the child lived? This sounds like a wildly succesful abortion.

It looks like he inadvertantly aborted the wrong patient.

There are a myriad of complications any time one does reproductive surgery. I don't care how careful one is, Murphy is always standing behind one.

Abortions are performed everyday and the fact there are not more complications and deaths resulting from them is surprising. Physicians trained in the US are some of the best in the world. I don't support abortion but one has to take it as fact, US physicians and surgeons are for the most well trained and careful.

When someone becomes a doctor, he or she says an oath and states that he or she will “do no harm.” However, each abortion ends a life, which does harm and violates the oath. Any doctor who performs an abortion should lose his or her license.

It is still sad that this young woman lost her life. If you love life, then.... love life.

“When conservatives stay home on general election day”

let me add or “write in who they want” ...

“and allow Hillobama to become president, then abortionists who perform botched abortions will be given special dispensation from the white house.”

Not any more. I heard it's no longer a requirement to take the Hippocrate Oath.

Here’s something pro-abortionists like to throw around. They’ll say if abortion is made illegal, will mothers and doctors be thrown in jail now? My response is doctors would most certainly be thrown in jail. However, I’d like to hear thoughts in regards to the mother.
