Hospital halts abortions over legal fears of fetal damage

AUSTIN – The Texas abortion clinic where two teenage girls were killed this week by a teenage clinic worker has had its Texas medical license revoked amid concerns about its staff, who have been under investigation since the fatal incident.

The clinic had been operating in McAllen and surrounding areas at least since April 15, when a clinic employee who was previously charged with second-degree murder, assault, aggravated assault and other charges killed six-year-old Malissa Wayne and six-year-old Crystal Ford with a hammer.

TLC Life International confirmed Tuesday it has shut down the surgical center in the city where the facility was located and “has permanently suspended all activities,” including hiring staff and running its business, for the next 90 days.

We also thank the hospital staff and the investigators and our hearts go out to the injured women’s families.”

The hospital also said on its Web site that in its eight years at the facility, it had performed about 50 operations but that of the more than 20 women who had used its services the number had not been reported.

“TLC Life USA, Inc. fully apolog세부카지노izes to the families and friends affected by the tragic situation, and will do everything in its power to make amends to them and the community as soon as possible,” the company said in the statement.

The Texas Commission on Women, the state agency regulating the abortion industry, also said it was monitoring the investigation. “After our formal review, it is our position that there are no grounds for revocation for the surgical center,” a commission spokeswoman said in a statement.

The state agency is tasked with enforcing state regulations related to the abortion business and its facilities, which it has cited for several violations.
