Abortionist Alberto Hodari has been fined $10,000 by the State of
Michigan for the 2003 abortion death of Regina Johnson. The consent
order, which recently became public, was issued on March 4, 2009, over
five years after Ms. Johnson's death.
"Now we know what a woman's life is worth in the State of Michigan once
she walks into an abortion clinic," said Operation Rescue President
Troy Newman. "This paltry fine has reduced Ms. Johnson's life to that
of chattel. Animals are bought and sold for more than this."
In exchange for the consent agreement, counts of negligence and
incompetence against Hodari were dismissed, leaving only the charge
that his conduct constituted a "lack of good moral character."
"Hodari was given a slap on the wrist for his part in Regina Johnson's
death, even though he has been involved in the deaths of at least three
additional women since 2004," said Operation Rescue President Troy
Newman. "The Board's finding that his conduct lacks 'good moral
character' is a gross understatement. The man is a public menace. "
Hodari has had other problems with the law. Citizens for a Pro-Life
Society discovered illegally dumped private medical records in open
dumpsters behind several of Hodari's Detroit-area abortion clinics. He
with 12 counts of illegal record dumping, but another agreement
allowed him to plead "no
contest" to a single count, for which he remains on probation.
More shocking was the discovery of the bodies
of aborted babies that had been illegally dumped in the same trash
receptacles. Hodari was never charged with any crime related to the
dumping of human remains. The babies were later given a proper
One of Hodari's former patients came forward in February, 2009, and
told of her traumatic
forced abortion when she was 16-years old. She has since filed a
formal complaint against Hodari with the health board in Michigan.
But Hodari appears to be so confident that he is above the law that he
has given interviews
and speeches bragging about his appalling abortion practices. He says
that he believes abortionists have a "license to lie."
"In addition to his part in four abortion deaths, Hodari has openly
admitted that he purposely places women's lives and health at risk. The
fact that he is still allowed to continue his reckless behavior is
inexcusable," said Newman. "The Health Department's coddling of Hodari
completely unacceptable. We plan to formally demand that they take
meaningful disciplinary action before he kills anyone else."
