Following up on earlier stories (Another Gosnell, Ending the 30-Year War, Sordid History of Abortionist), we’ve learned that yet another licensed medical doctor has made a lucrative career of killing babies slated for abortion.
Dr. Karpen is licensed in TX. Despite having numerous complaints against him, he is still practicing. He is currently accused of “twisting babies’ heads off…” in this video produced by Life Dynamics, Inc.
Leigh Hopper, Public Information Officer for the Texas Medical Board, said in an interview Wednesday afternoon that they haven’t suspended his license and have no plans to open a file because they have no complaints, and therefore it is “beyond their authority” to investigate.
When asked if they would pursue the former abortion clinic workers making these claims, Ms. Hopper said, “That is not how we operate.” When asked if the Texas Medical Board would take action now that they have seen the video of the abortion clinic employees, she responded, “It is not within our authority to find them. They would need to come to the TMB and file a complaint.”
When asked if she disputed anything in the articles written thus far, she did not respond, but added this statement, “We are urging anyone with specific information to come forward. We have a very simple complaint process available on our website.”
A call was put in to the Harris County District Attorney’s office late Wednesday afternoon and they stated that they are now planning a “full scale investigation.”
Although a formal announcement has yet to be made, confirmation of the investigation came on Thursday through Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst’s Twitter account.
