Funny, for all the pro-abort chatter last week about wanting to rid the abortion industry of its bottom feeders (which will be hard since they’re all bottom feeders), I’m reading nothing on their blogs condemning Cape Cod’s Rapin Osathanondh (pictured right), whose manslaughter trial for killing Laura Smith (pictured on page 2, left) begins today, on the 3rd anniversary of her death.

Typically in cases like this a doctor is only charged with negligence. But Osathanondh’s actions were apparently so abominable he is extraordinarily being charged with manslaughter.

Read the Associated Press story here. Here is a synopsis of the charges against Osathanondh from the article:

Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe… called his conduct “willful, wanton and reckless.”

Osathanondh, 67, resigned his medical license the same day the state Board of Registration in Medicine issued a scathing list of charges against him, alleging that he had “engaged in conduct that calls into question his competence to practice medicine.”

The board said Osathanondh did not have any means of monitoring Smith’s heart, and did not have oxygen or a functioning blood pressure cuff in the room during Smith’s abortion. The board also alleged that he “failed to adhere to basic cardiac life support protocol” and did not call 911 in a timely manner.

Osathanondh was also accused of deceiving staff members by claiming he gave Smith oxygen during the procedure and by saying that Smith was monitored by a pulse oximeter during her procedure. Neither step was taken, the board said.
