BREAKING - Illegal Texas Abortion Clinic Closed, Abortionist's License Suspended

Illegal Texas Abortion Clinic Closed, Abortionist's License Suspended

February 15, 2014

Houston, TX - The Texas Medical Board has suspended the medical license of abortionist Theodore M. Herring for conducting 268 abortions illegally without having the required privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of his Houston abortion clinic, which was ordered closed by the Texas Department of State Health Services.

According to TMB documents, Herring failed to even apply for hospital privileges after the passage of highly publicized abortion clinic safety law that was passed last year. The violation was discovered during an inspection at Herring's A Affordable Women's Medical Center abortion clinic on December 11, 2013.

"The clinic regulations in Texas are successfully working to shut down seedy abortion operations that are operating illegally and posing a danger to the public. When abortion clinics close, lives are saved. It couldn't be clearer how much this law is necessary in order to protect women and babies from predatory and dangerous abortionists," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. "We continue to urge the passage of similar laws in every state."
