DETROIT, March 13, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – An abortionist with a history of harming, or killing, the women who come to him has found a new employer in the Detroit area.

Reginald Sharpe closed two abortion facilities in the region earlier this month, including one – the Women’s Advisory Center in Livonia – that had been in operation for three decades.

“We are absolutely delighted that these two abortion clinics are closed,” Monica Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society told LifeSiteNews.com. “This means a shrinking of the actual places where the unborn die, and that is always a good thing.”

However, Lynn Mills of Pro-Life Detroit says when she called the facility, she was directed to Summit Women's Center on West McNichols Road in Detroit. She obtained a picture of Sharpe at Summit, confirming his new employment.

The facility offers “abortions to 24 weeks,” “discounts for out-of-state patients,” and “childcare classes.”

Sharpe has a years-long history of botched abortions that left his patients wounded, sterile, or dead.

In January 2008, Sharpe perforated a 26-year-old woman's uterus, “cut a uterine blood vessel, lacerated her intestines, and liver” during a botched abortion. She died eight days later.

The death certificate, which LifeSiteNews has obtained, states the cause of death is “uterine perforation during medical procedure.”

In August 2011 he again perforated a patient's uterus seven times and left fetal remains inside the woman. Extensive wounds to the reproductive area required a full hysterectomy, leaving the woman infertile.

He twice failed to diagnose an ectopic pregnancy, causing fallopian tubes to burst, a potentially fatal complication. Sharpe settled one of these cases in March 2006 for $50,000.

In 2005, he performed a late-term abortion in a state that limits abortion to 24 weeks. His business soon burned to the ground.

A pro-life investigator says Sharpe may have mishandled medical records when he closed his Livonia abortion mill, as well.

Mills told LifeSiteNews.com that the week after the closure, she and others saw his soon-to-be former employees “shoving files into his car.”

“I said, 'Tell me where are those files going?” Mills told LifeSiteNews. “And [the employee] told me they were being 'shipped off for destruction.'”

“The proper authorities have been notified and we're waiting,” Mills said. “If those are seven years and younger and they've been destroyed, it could be career-ending.”
