abortion clinic examination roomState officials in Ohio have cracked down on an abortionist, giving at least a "temporary reprieve" for women and unborn babies in the areas where he has practiced his gruesome trade.

The State Medical Board on Ohio has been reviewing northeast Ohio abortionist David Burkons for some time now. Katie Franklin of Ohio Right to Life tells OneNewsNow that Burkons has "botched" abortions over the last few years – adding "there are a number of things about him that would make people cringe." She explains:

Franklin

"... Unrelated to any of his abortion practice, the State Medical Board conducted an investigation and found that he had been improperly prescribing medications to patients," says the pro-life activist. "Essentially he was signing blank prescriptions, leaving them with his staff, and then failing to record the prescriptions in patient documents."

Franklin says that comes at a time when Ohio has been facing a crisis in abuse of prescription drugs.

And while she says the board's six-month suspension of Burkons' medical license isn't the "end-all, be-all victory" she would prefer, "it is a temporary reprieve for the women and children of northeast Ohio – and more broadly all across Ohio because this abortionist practices at multiple facilities across the state."

Ohio Right to Life contends Burkons "operated under the regulatory radar for years without discipline" – and thus finds it "refreshing" the abortionist has been punished for "gambling with the health and safety of his patients."
