LONDON, July 20 ( – Former Canadian abortionist, Dr. Richard Neale, has been found guilty of incompetence and negligence by England’s General Medical Council. Dr. Richard Neale was found guilty in 36 out of 37 cases brought against him. He was also found guilty of lying about his qualifications and being rude to the women he treated. Reports detailed how Neale was dubbed “Bloody Dr. Neale” and “the Butcher” due to his mistreatment of patients during surgery.

A CBC report on the finding of guilt failed to mention the fact that Neale did abortions, merely referring to him as a “gynecologist.” When reports of his trial were underway, none of the reports even mentioned the word abortion. Ten Canadian newspapers and news agencies reported on the story, including the Toronto Star, Toronto Sun, CTV News, CBC, the National Post, and the London Free Press. It will be interesting to see whether reports in the media tomorrow report that he is an abortionist.

Forty Canadian women have launched complaints against Neale for incidents that occurred in Canada. The Post reported that three Canadian women died in his care and LifeSite reported earlier that at least one of those deaths was due to a botched abortion. Despite having been stripped of his medical licence in Canada, Neale was nevertheless allowed to practice in England. His suspension and the investigation in Britain took place after 60 women publicly came forward to say that they had suffered needlessly while in his care. While in Canada in the 1980’s, Neale wrote a letter to the Globe and Mail complaining of the “endless stream of young girls who come seeking termination of their pregnancies.”
