Exposing the dark past of Dr. Adam Levy, Las Vegas abortionist

Dr. Adam Levy, an abortionist at the Birth Control Care Center abortion facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, is no stranger to controversy. 

His past first came under widespread scrutiny in 2022 after he appeared in a political ad opposing Republican April Becker‘s campaign. Becker was running for the U.S. House at the time. In the ad, Levy claimed that Becker’s “extreme backers” supported “ban[ning] all abortions.” He also claimed, “Before Roe v. Wade, doctors saw plenty of botched, back-alley abortions, and far too many women died.” Notably, this is untrue; most “back-alley” abortions were committed by doctors, and the death rate from abortions began to fall decades prior to Roe v. Wade due to the advent of antibiotics.

As some media outlets observed at the time, it was somewhat ironic for Levy to publicly decry botched abortions resulting in women’s deaths, because Levy himself has settled at least three malpractice complaints in the past, including one case in which the patient died after her uterus was perforated during an abortion procedure. Another of his patients sued after she “suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns to her labia and perenium [sic] from a hot weighted speculum used in surgery.” 

The same media outlets who reported on Levy’s malpractice history also pointed out that Levy has a criminal record.

In 1998, Levy was charged with one count of sexual assault with a minor under 16 years of age, and six counts of lewdness with a child under the age of 14. Two different victims were named in related court documents (though their names have been redacted here out of respect for their privacy). The details of the assaults are in the documents below (content warning):


Levy entered what is known as an Alford plea. According to Cornell Law School’s Legal Information Institute, “An Alford plea, also known as a ‘best-interests plea,’ registers a formal admission of guilt towards charges in criminal court while the defendant simultaneously expresses their innocence toward those same charges.” LawInfo adds: “An Alford plea is based on a voluntary and intelligent choice to avoid a harsher criminal sentence.”

In exchange for this plea, Levy’s charges – and penalties – were significantly reduced.

He was ultimately convicted on two counts of child abuse and neglect. He was sentenced to two years in county jail, which was suspended, and he was given a total of five years of probation. He was also ordered to attend counseling and to pay for any counseling required by his victims. In addition, his plea agreement references a “duplicate case,” which was dismissed – the records of that case were also sealed.


Levy’s background has become a matter of public discussion once more, largely due to the efforts of activist Maison DesChamps, also known as ‘Pro-Life Spiderman, who has launched a campaign to expose the abortionist’s questionable history.

According to DesChamps and other Las Vegas pro-lifers, Levy is currently considered a pillar of the community in spite of his dubious past. This would appear to be confirmed by Levy’s multiple prestigious positions.

Levy is an associate professor in the Department of Gynecologic Surgery & Obstetrics at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV), where he is also the director of the division of family planning in the UNLV School of Medicine Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology, as well as the director of the Ryan program, which trains future abortionists. He is the Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at University Medical Center.

He is also on staff at Sunrise Children’s Hospital – in spite of his child abuse conviction.

DesChamps, who is a student at UNLV, is calling on the school’s administrators to dismiss Levy. DesChamps would also like to ultimately see Levy’s abortion facility shut down.

“We hope to see Adam Levy finally held accountable for his actions,” DesChamps told Live Action News. “No one with his criminal history should be anywhere near patients.”

Las Vegas pro-lifers are hopeful that these efforts will ultimately bring about change, both locally and globally. One local pro-lifer, who wishes to remain anonymous, had this to say: “I personally pray that this exposure will bring Dr. Adam Levy, and the other abortionists watching what’s happening, to a point of repentance and one day they will help save lives instead.”
