Doctor sends botched abortion victim to hospital in car during rush hour

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has an article about a case where an abortionist nearly killed a woman. This was not the only operation Dr.  Scott R Barrett botched. He also killed at least one other woman:

“The degree of damage that Barrett caused to B.J. was almost unheard of. Barrett was utterly oblivious to the fact that he was suctioning B.J.’s abdominal organs out of her body. Then, having nearly eviscerated his patient and with her clearly in critical condition, he sent her to the hospital in a private car during rush hour. By the time she reached the operating table, she was moments away from bleeding to death. A more egregious example of incompetence and gross negligence is difficult to imagine.”

“An abortionist’s trial of tragedy records detail botched operations that; finally brought state action” St. Louis Post-Dispatch  08/02/92

Barrett was operating legally.
