Louisiana Right to Life recently wrote to the State Board of Medical Examiners concerning abortionist Kevin Work.

The letter was also sent to the desk of state Attorney General Jeff Landry, who called Governor John Bel Edwards' attention to it.

Solicitor General Liz Murrill tells OneNewsNow that Work, who had been on probation, was doing abortions in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, and had failed to pass an obstetrics and gynecology reinstatement exam..

"We wanted to know what he had done to demonstrate his competency and whether he was, in fact, competent to be performing those procedures," says Murrill, "because the Medical Licensing Board records showed that his license had been revoked and only reinstated to provide wound care."

The board has suspended Work's license based on its determination that he posed an immediate risk of harm.

"I would expect," says Murill, "that his conduct would be imputed to the clinic as well, and would expect that the Department of Health would examine whether the clinic has violated the law."

Murrill emphasizes a law, currently tied up in court, would have helped prevent Work from working in the state. It would require that an abortionist have admitting privileges at a local hospital which would be unlikely for a disciplined doctor to obtain.
