St. John Providence Park Hospital, a Catholic facility in Michigan, has cut ties with an abortionist who is under investigation in the state, according to local station WXYZ.
As Live Action News previously reported, circuit-riding abortion doctor Michael Roth is the subject of a federal investigation on suspicion that he performed illegal abortions after police found several containers of human tissue – possibly fetuses – in his vehicle. The discovery came after the abortionist was involved in a car accident, which prompted the Attorney General and DEA to raid his home and office last week.
The hospital released the following statement to the station:
Michael Roth, MD is a private practice physician (not employed by the hospital) on leave of absence.
Our by-laws clearly require all physicians to adhere to the ethical religious directives, meaning no abortions in the hospital.
But Michigan law prohibits hospitals from denying medical staff privileges based on whether or not a physician provides termination of pregnancy services at other locations.
Pro-life activist Lynn Mills has stated that Roth has been killing preborn babies since the Rescue days of the late 1980’s, working with other notorious abortionists in the state. She described Roth as being extremely nasty to pro-lifers and to the media. Mills says she has been warning the Archdiocese of Detroit about allowing abortionists privileges at their hospitals since 2010. She previously told Live Action News that last year, she and a group of pro-lifers held a demonstration at Providence Hospital but rather than addressing why a Catholic hospital would allow an abortionist to practice there, the hospital called security on the demonstrators.
“It’s time for the Archdiocese of Detroit to release the other abortionist with privileges,” Mills says. “This is a wake-up call that the reputation of all Catholics as well as the reputation of their Catholic hospitals are at risk when they give an abortionist privileges.”
