More Florida quackery

Two Miami abortion facility owners have been charged with hiring unlicensed people to perform abortions. Jose Rodriguez, 52, and Magaly Gil, 56, both of Miami, were were released on $5,000 bond, according the Miami Herald Kieron Nisbet performed abortions at Rodriguez and Gil's Best Care Women's Center in November. He also did abortions at A Woman's Care II in Hialeah. A warrant was issued for Nisbet's arrest in April, but he appears to have fled to his native Trinidad.

Officials moved to revoke A Woman's Care II's license. At first the facility fought in court, but then voluntarily surrendered the license after the Florida Department of Health and the Miami-Dade Police Department began a joint investigation.

The story at LifeNews explores the deceptive methods Rodriguez and Gil used to cover up the fact that unlicensed practitioners were doing abortions at their facility.

The story also reports that A Gyn Diagnostic Center, an abortion facility, was using an abortionist, Robelto A. Osborne, whose license had been revoked by the state months beforehand for botching a series of abortions. Osborne had previously been an abortion practitioner at A Woman's Choice Clinic in Miami Lakes.

Let's go down memory lane and look at some other Florida quackery:
