Abortionist Fined $10,000 For Doing Surgical Abortion on the Wrong Woman

Abortionist Harvey Craig Roth has been disciplined by the Florida Board of Medicine for conducting a surgical abortion on the wrong woman in 2017 at A Women’s Center of Hollywood, an abortion facility in Hollywood, Florida.

final order in the case dated July 22, 2019, noted that a settlement agreement was reached with Roth where he agreed to pay a fine of $10,000, costs totaling $3,563.70, and has had a “Letter of Concern” placed in his file.

Roth will also have to undergo additional education in risk management and give a one-hour lecture on “risk management and avoiding wrong procedures in an office setting” that must also include information on the performance of the “time out” rule during surgical procedures.

According to the Administrative Complaint filed against Roth, Patient K.M., who was 35-years old at the time, reported to the abortion facility on December 11, 2017, for a medication abortion, which involves taking pills that cause early abortions.  Instead, Roth sedated her and gave her a surgical abortion.

News coverage in the Sun-Sentinel of Roth’s disciplinary hearing before the Florida Medical Board in June gave further details of the incident.
