Police raided the Outpatient Services for Women abortion center in Oklahoma City and arrested Patel. The arrest came after a Operation Rescue filed a five-count complaint against him with the State Attorney General’s office, the Oklahoma Health Department, and the Oklahoma Medical Board.
The complaints were based on documents and medical waste that had been discarded in a publicly-accessible trash receptacle near Patel’s Outpatient Services for Women abortion clinic in Oklahoma City. The material was received by Operation Rescue from an anonymous source on March 18, 2013.
Patel doesn’t face charges related to the rapes or dumping the bodies of abortion babies. Instead, Patel, 62, is accused of obtaining money by false pretenses. Patel lied to women and told them they were pregnant and then put their lives and health at risk by selling them the dangerous RU 486 (mifepristone) abortion pill that has killed dozens and injured thousands of women.
“The outrageous practice of selling abortions to non-pregnant women is actually a fairly common practice among abortionists nationwide,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “As the number of abortions drop, abortionists find themselves in greater competition for every abortion dollar. Every time a woman walks away from an abortion clinic with a negative pregnancy test, it represents about a $500 loss to the abortion business. Telling non-pregnant women that they are actually pregnant for the purpose of selling them abortions is a huge temptation to greedy abortionists who want to keep their profit margins up.”
