Somebody wanted Sidney C. Laughlin

My RealChoice site has this:

Back Alley Butchers vs Main Street Maimers
Dr. Sidney C. Laughlin
Former employees of Dr. Sidney C. Laughlin alleged that he performed illegal late-term abortions in a bedroom of his home, across the street from an elementary school. Upon investigating the allegation, police found a dismembered 16-week fetus in his trash. The autopsy on the fetus noted right and left arm dismembered at the shoulder, organs, legs and feet, and macerated and opened head containing fragments of brain tissue. The medical examiner also noted other embryonic tissues, blood-stained pads, rubber gloves, and an empty syringe in the bags collected by the police. A nurse who claimed to have assisted in 4 or 5 abortions in his home said Laughlin sterilized abortion instruments in his dishwasher. The nurse said she quit assisting in these abortions after she observed Laughlin aborting a 28-week old fetus, 4 weeks past the 24-week legal limit. She also said Laughlin owed her $3000 in back wages. Equipment found in Laughlin's home included suction machine, medications, and an exam table. One former employee also allegedly said she is now embarrassed to have worked for Laughlin, and that "He laughed about dismembering babies." Laughlin denied disposing of the fetus, saying "I've always disposed of them through a medical [waste company]." Laughlin also denied that it would be improper or illegal to perform abortions in the doctor's home. Because a law restricting 2nd-trimester abortions to hospitals had been found unconstitutional by the state attorney general in 1984, Laughlin said that no law would prevent abortions from being done in a home.

I can't find anything on Laughlin on the Oklahoma medical board site.

To think he delivered my daughter in 1990. Then, in 91 or 92 was arrested for dumping fetus' off I40 after performing illegal abortions in Shawnee, OK with Dr. Patel; the same dr the just got arrested AGAIN for abortion activity in Warr Acres. I worked for him in 91 until I was fired for refusing to go to OKCity to help with abortions. Was NOT in job duities. The 2 doctors were arrested right after that for the I40 fetus dumping activities!

I did Medical Assistant clinicals in his Shawnee Mission Hill office where I saw A LOT that shouldn't have happened; along with a "SUCTION" machine. He stated it was going to OKCity; apparently it did not. He had allowed his nurses, and receptionist, order testosterone vials and they gave each other testosterone injections to help muscle tone! (I KNOW THIS ALL FOR A FACT BECAUSE NOT ONLY DID THEY CONFIDE IN ME AND SIS, I ALSO DID MEDICAL ASSISTANT CLINICALS IN HIS OFFICE AND SEEN THEM DO THIS FIRST HAND)!
He alo tried to perform multiple tests on me, for the double Medicaid charging he was later taken to trial for. Me and my sister stopped him BEFORE the duplicate tests were done. He was shocked we caught him on it and stopped him; faking shock he did it already without recalling it.
When delivered daughter, he RUSHED it by going for the forceps TOO FAST because was in a hurry, causing indentations in her scalp for a while. THEN, while sewing me up where I had to be cut some, my husband said he turned to look back towards me, carrying our daughter out, and Dr. Laughlin was REAL CLOSE to my "exposed vaginal area", NO MASK ON, BREATHING ON ME! Within 2 weeks I had a HUGE INFECTED BOIL CYST that I had to go to get lanced by him; inside an unused area of the clinic. Glad my mom was with me.
I wanted to sue him after that and was told to GET IN LINE because that is when all the Medicaid suits started kicking in.
I am SO THANKFUL to GOD that my daughter was born!!! To think what he had been doing, in the same office I went to get treated while pregnant! He even prescribed LORTABS for some headaches I was having!!
He delivered my ONLY child and she is fixing to have her FIRST child this week! My first grand-baby. I am SO BLESSED that this doctor did not do something that could have made me lose her! I wasn't suppose to have babies, was on birth control, and got pregnant.
God was with me!
