Louisiana suspended the medical license of an abortion provider, stating that the disciplinary action was “to safeguard the public health.”
The Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners issued an order Tuesday to Dr. Kevin Govan Work, notifying him that his license would be suspended pending a final resolution through an administrative hearing.
“ … emergency action is imperative to safeguard the public health, welfare and safety,” the board’s notice said in part.
Work had been performing abortions at two facilities, Delta Women’s Clinic in Baton Rouge and Women’s Healthcare Center in New Orleans.
Benjamin Clapper, executive director of Louisiana Right to Life, sent a letter to the board on Feb. 19 demanding that Work was in violation of a probation order over past disciplinary actions.
These included allowing other medical personnel to treat patients without his supervision, failing to document prescriptions controlled substances, and giving false sworn information to the board on his surgical operations at a medical facility.
“We would be surprised if the LSBME were to grant Dr. Work permission to work in outpatient abortion facilities, especially given his troubled history at outpatient abortion facilities, his failure to pass the Board Certification Examination in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and his own desire to pursue wound care,” wrote Clapper.
