In the state of Alabama, Leah Torres has been terminating preborn children at the West Alabama Women's Center, located in Tuscaloosa, but a pro-life group says the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners has suspended her temporary license and ordered her to stop practicing medicine entirely pending a hearing.

Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says the allegation is that Torres lied on her application for a permanent license in the state.

“[Torres] misrepresented her disciplinary action,” Sullenger alleges. “She had actually been removed from staff privileges at a hospital. She denied the medical malpractice claim that was settled in 2018, and she denied that she had a history of mental health conditions.”

Abortionist Leah Torres storyOneNewsNow reported in an August 5 story that Torres was taking over the West Alabama clinic as medical director. She was fired from an abortion clinic in Utah after stating in a social media post, in an apparent response to pro-lifers, that fetuses can’t scream because she cuts their vocal cord.

In a lawsuit Torres filed against The Daily Caller, she said she had suffered from mental anxiety, nervousness and behavioral disorder. She also claimed to have worked as a physician during a period when she could not find a job.

Torres can appeal in a September 21 hearing but Operation Rescue predicts her chances of continuing her abortion practice in Alabama are in doubt.
