Dr. Jesse James Joplin, a long-time abortionist for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte in Northern California, has had his medical license suspended by the California Medical Board. Joplin was already on probation due to a recent pattern of drug and alcohol abuse beginning in 2007.

Some background on the case (read the full article for details on Joplin’s past botched abortions):

In an order that took effect on April 22, the Medical Board had suspended Joplin’s license, but stayed the revocation and instead placed him on probation for seven years. If Joplin violated any of the conditions of his probation, the order provided he would be subject to an interim suspension order.

The conditions of Joplin’s probation provided that he abstain completely from the use of alcohol, submit to random urine tests four times a month, submit to a psychiatric evaluation and undergo psychotherapy, submit to monitoring by an independent physician and not engage in the solo practice of medicine, not supervise physicians assistants, and “obey all laws.”

The restrictions placed on Joplin by the Medical Board stemmed from a series of alcohol-related convictions dating back to 2007, according to the Board’s records.

The first arrest was on July 4, 2007, after Joplin was stopped for speeding by a California Highway Patrol officer. “The officer observed a plastic baggie of marijuana in the center console area” and smelled alcohol, Medical Board records show. Joplin pleaded no contest in December 2007 to “reckless driving involving alcohol, drugs, or both,” according to the records.

In September 2009, Joplin was again arrested after his “erratic driving drew the attention of another motorist, who called 911.” The arresting officer, say Medical Board records, noted Joplin had slurred speech, a strong odor of alcohol, and was disoriented to time and place.

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte is the largest Planned Parenthood affiliate in the country. Dr. Joplin is also their highest-paid abortionist, according to their 2008 990 form, to the tune of $235,000/year:

Think about it. The highest-paid, star abortionist at the biggest Planned Parenthood affiliate in the country is a stoner and a lush who has a long history of medical malpractice. How bad must all the other ones be?
