Somebody wanted info on Laurence Reich

Reich is an osteopath who worked at Nicholas Braemer’s Clinica Medica para la Mujer de Hoy. He recently surrendered his medical license. This guy is so bad, even abortion proponent Barbara Boxer wanted him put out of business.

Reich has a long history of wrongdoing. He had been arrested in January of 1982 by Santa Monica police. An investigation found two abortion patients who said he’d sexually assaulted them before and after their abortions. One said she had to return to have the remainder of her fetus removed. A total of 28 criminal charges were brought, including assault, battery, unprofessional conduct, prescribing drugs without a license, falsely representing himself as an MD rather than as a DO, and attempting to intimidate victims into dropping their testimony. Reich plea bargained in June of 1984, pleading no contest to two counts of battery and two counts of misrepresenting himself in exchange for dropping other charges. He was fined $3200. In 1994, he completed a 10-year probation for botching an abortion. But still he was permitted to prey on California women.

How Reich and his buddies in Chula Vista were an improvement over "back-alley butchers" remains a mystery.
