Yet Another Abortionist Scandal

From the regular reports of comes this story...

Two owners of an abortion business in Miami have been arrested on charges that they were using two people without a medical license to perform abortions at their facility. Police arrested Jose Rodriguez, 52, and Magaly Gil, 56, both of Miami. They were released on $5,000 bond, according to a Miami Herald report.

Officials say the pair knew Kieron Nisbet, who performed abortions at their facility, was not licensed to practice medicine in Florida. According to the report, Nisbet performed abortions in November at their Best Care Women's Center abortion business. Nisbet also performed abortions at a Hialeah, Florida abortion facility, A Women's Care II, during the same time.

Police have tried to apprehend Nisbet, but the Herald reports he has fled to his homeland of Trinidad, an island in the Southeast Caribbean. Police put out a warrant for his arrest in April. State officials are trying to revoke the license for the A Women's Care II abortion business, but it is fighting the action and has taken their case before an administrative judge. However, the owners surrendered the license voluntarily on Monday after the Miami-Dade Police Department and the Florida Department of Health began a joint investigation.

Meanwhile, Rodriguez and Gill have gone to extraordinary lengths to cover up their use of unlicensed people to perform abortions. A former employee of the Best Care Women's Center abortion facility told police that the two ordered her to tell officials that Nisbet was not involved in the abortion facility. The owners also brought the employee to the Hialeah abortion facility to ''for the purpose of showing her a licensed doctor by the name of David Brown," the Herald reported. They told the employee to tell police that Brown had performed the abortions at both facilities.
