Decrepit Clinics Shut Down, Criminal Abortionist Covered by Board of Medicine
In January 2013, an abortion clinic in Muskegon, MI was shut down by the fire marshal over

Dr. Robert Alexander’s abortion clinic was closed after police discovered "filthy" andunsanitary conditions throughout the clinic, including “blood on th

The investigator also reported “blood dripping from
a sink p-trap
in a room used by patients.”
Other violations noted in the fire marshal’s inspection include
improper disposal of syringesand needles, unsterilized medical equipment, as well
as the “dumping of chemicals and other liquids down drains without proper authorization and approvals.”
In May, local media reported that in 2009, the Michigan Board of Medicine received a
complaint about botched abortions at Alexander’s clinic, including
one that ruptured a
woman’s uterus, causing bleeding but still resulted in the birth of a live child, but the board
did not investigate it.
Then Michigan Board Chairman Dr. George Shade Jr., Alexander’s mentor, determined that
no investigation was necessary.
Dr. Alexander served prison time in the 1990’s for selling illegal prescriptions.
Two more Michigan clinics (in Livonia and Detroit) were closed in March. Both clinicswere owned and operated by abortionist Dr. Reginald Sharpe. The Livonia clinic wasexposed several years ago for the dumping of fetal remains in a dumpster outside thefacility.
Dr. Sharpe’s medical license was suspended in 2005 for performin
g an abortion beyond 24weeks.
