NEW YORK, May 31 ( – Abortionist Allan Zarkin, who is known as Dr. Zorro for having carved his initials into the abdomen of a patient while acting as an ob/gyn performing a caesarian section, was given only probation as punishment.  Yesterday a deal was reached with prosecutors which would see Zarkin banned from medicine and required to see a psychiatrist twice a week.

Zarkin’s lawyer claimed his client has Pick’s disorder which clouded his judgement leading to his assault on his patient.  Zarkin’s carving victim Dr Liana Gedz settled out of court for US $1.75 million.
