Delaware Pro-Life Community Outraged at Leniency for Abortion Doctor

Wilmington, Delaware, January 8, 2014 – The Delaware Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline has shown a callous disregard for the public health and safety by letting Dr. Timothy Liveright get away with a nominal fine and a letter of reprimand.  The Board is remiss in its decision, playing abortion politics, and further endangering women’s lives by allowing a butcher like Liveright to walk away with no significant consequences for his horrific behavior.

 Liveright was deemed a “clear and immediate danger to the public,” by the Attorney General’s office last year after an investigation into the Planned Parenthood clinic where he worked, sparked by the complaints of former employees.   Liveright himself admitted to sexual harassment and numerous instances of misconduct.  According to the three former employees who testified at two legislative hearings in 2013, they witnessed a laundry list of offenses by Liveright at the clinic, including unsafe and unsanitary practices that put women’s health and lives at risk.  During early 2013, Liveright was responsible for five medical emergencies from botched abortions in a period of six weeks. 

To dismiss such egregious transgressions is an affront not only to the medical profession, but to the women harmed by Liveright, and the integrity of those who sought to do the right thing in reporting his misconduct.  Where will he strike next?
