[Delaware] Attorney General Beau Biden requested on Friday the emergency suspension of Dr. Arturo Apolinario's license. Apolinario will not be allowed to practice medicine pending a hearing.

Earlier this month, state officials also suspended Dr. Albert Dworkin's license. Authorities contend the two physicians have worked with Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who is charged with eight counts of murder for the deaths of seven babies and one patient at the Women's Medical Society clinic in Philadelphia.

From "Delaware pulls abortion doc's license" by Jonathan Starkey, Delaware News Journal 3/6/11

Delaware's most recent complaint against Apolinario detailed the case of a 17-year-old girl, whose aunt paid Atlantic [Women's Medical Services' clinic] $2,500 for an abortion in July 2008. An ultrasound showed the girl's pregnancy was 29 weeks along.

According to the complaint, Gosnell began the abortion process at Atlantic in Wilmington [Delaware], then instructed the girl to report to his Philadelphia facility the next day to complete the procedure. After 13 hours of labor, the girl gave birth to a baby boy who was 18 to 19 inches long, according to sworn testimony by an eyewitness. According to testimony, Gosnell slit the baby's neck with scissors and "put him in a box where he continued to move for some time until he died."

Delaware prosecutors are also seeking a cease-and-desist order against Panzy Myrie, Atlantic's owner, for improperly advertising herself as a doctor. They're also seeking fines against Atlantic. While the state's complaints could result in fines and suspensions, they are civil, so they will not result in any jail time.

From "Execution Sought for Doc in Patient Deaths" by Maryclaire Dale, Associated Press 3/2/11

Prosecutors in Philadelphia say they will seek the death penalty against a doctor charged with killing a patient and seven babies at his abortion clinic.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell is charged with running a filthy medical practice that allegedly served as a pill mill by day and an abortion mill by night.

City prosecutors cite as aggravating circumstances the multiple deaths and the tender age of the babies allegedly killed with scissors after being born alive.

From "Murder Case Puts Spotlight On Abortion Clinic Rules" by Kathy Lohr, NPR 3/6/11

A murder case involving a sordid Philadelphia abortion clinic is fueling debate about how clinics should be run, with several states considering stricter regulations. Abortion rights groups say that could force some clinics to close and make abortions more expensive.

Some abortion opponents in Pennsylvania and other states say the regulations, even if enforced, were not enough. Delaware, Maryland and Oklahoma are among the states looking into stricter regulations in the wake of the Gosnell incident. About a week ago, Virginia lawmakers passed a bill that requires most clinics to be regulated as ambulatory surgical centers.

"I don't think that this is going to stop 'cause I don't think the Gosnell situation is going to disappear for awhile," [Daniel McConchie, with Americans United for Life] says. "He is going to go to trial and frankly, the horrific nature of what went on at his clinic is something that people just don't easily forget."

Some anti-abortion activists in Philadelphia say they hope to raise money as a result of the Gosnell case — enough to buy his clinic and turn it into a crisis pregnancy center that would not offer abortion.
