A Kansas City abortionist is out of business after investigators discovered a grisly house of horrors at his clinic with fetuses kept in Styrofoam cups in his refrigerator and one employee accusing him of microwaving one and stirring it into his lunch.

The unsanitary conditions in Krishna Rajanna's clinic prompted legislative approval of new abortion regulations in Kansas, a bill that was vetoed by the governor. Rajanna's activities have reportedly been the subject of law-enforcement investigations for nearly two years.

Rajanna first came to the attention of police in September 2003 when he called police to investigate alleged employee theft.

Detective William Howard of the Kansas City Police Department responded.

"I thought I had heard and seen every vile, disgusting crime scene, but was in for a new shock when I started this investigation," he would say later. Howard turned the matter over to the local district attorney and three state agencies.

Topping the list of horrors was an employee's account that she and others witnessed Rajanna "microwave one of the aborted fetuses and stir it into his lunch," as Howard recalled earlier this year when testifying before a Kansas House committee.

Rajanna denied the accusation. But he did keep fetuses in Styrofoam cups in the refrigerator along with food and drink.

"Dr. Rajanna lacked personal hygiene," testified Howard. "His hair was messy, hands dirty, and his clothing was wrinkled and stained. He put on old, used foot booties while we were there."

Howard testified the clinic was dark, dingy, had poor lighting and smelled musty. There were dirty dishes in the break-room sink and on the table, trash everywhere, and roaches crawling on the countertops. Howard was afraid to sit down.

Howard noted there were no hazardous waste containers anywhere. (An employee later testified Rajanna took home all contaminated, medical and biohazard waste for residential trash pick-up.)

As for the "procedure room," Howard's partner spotted dried blood on the floor and said the room looked "nasty."

Two dishwashers located next to the staff toilet served as sterilizers, according to employee testimony. Photographs show the toilet was bloody and functioned as a human waste disposal in the literal sense.

Board revokes abortion doctor's license


Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. - More than two months after disciplinary action forced him to close his Kansas City, Kan., abortion clinic, Dr. Krishna Rajanna has lost his license.

The State Board of Healing Arts voted unanimously Saturday to revoke Rajanna's license. Earlier this year, his case became the focus of a legislative debate over regulating abortion clinics.

A board inspector made two surprise visits in March to Rajanna's clinic, reporting that the facility was unclean and that Rajanna and his staff kept syringes of medications in an unlocked refrigerator. The inspector also reported finding a dead mouse in the hallway.

Rajanna argued that he had not been given an opportunity to meet with the inspector to correct the deficiencies. He also said in his 10 years of performing abortions in Kansas City, no patient has ever complained about his care.

But board members concluded that Rajanna's clinic represented a danger and said that as a doctor, he shouldn't have needed the board's prodding to keep a clinic clean and safe.

Rajanna can appeal the decision to district court. His attorney, Robert Manske, said Rajanna will decide soon whether to challenge the board's action.

Manske told the board that revoking Rajanna's license would hurt poor patients, saying Rajanna's clinic operated in a low-income neighborhood and charged reasonable fees for services no one else would provide. Manske also said the problems cited by the inspector could be corrected.

"It's kind of like driving a tack with a sledge hammer in this case," he told the board. "There are no patients in here telling you he did bad things to them."

But board member Nancy Welsh, a Topeka-area doctor, said the board should not permit lesser standards of cleanliness and safety because a clinic's patients are poor.

"Why do they deserve a dirty clinic?" she said.

Board members also noted that Rajanna had been previously disciplined, in 2000 and 2001, for not properly testing his patients for their blood types and for improperly labeling medications. Also, in February, Rajanna signed an agreement to improve his clinic's conditions and paid a $1,000 fine.

Rajanna told board members he'd improved the labeling of syringes containing medicines for patients and had wanted to have the inspector review them.

But board member Ronald Whitmer, an Ellsworth osteopath, said he didn't care whether the inspector or someone else would have told Rajanna if the labels were proper.

"That's something you should have learned in medical school," he told Rajanna.

Rajanna's clinic became part of the Legislature's debate on abortion last year, when Attorney General Kline released photos he said an informant had taken inside the clinic in 2003.

Kathleen Ostrowski, legislative research director for Kansans for Life, the state's largest anti-abortion group, noted the lag in time between questions about Rajanna's clinic first arising and the board revoking his license.

Also, she said, many poor women won't come forward if they're harmed by an abortion, out of fear, shame or a lack of medical knowledge.

"There is a problem here," she said. "Is the public being protected?"

With Rajanna's case pending, abortion opponents won legislative approval this year of a bill requiring abortion clinics to obtain an annual license from the Department of Health and Environment, hire surgeons as their medical directors and report patient deaths to the state within a day. The measure also mandated that KDHE set standards for equipment, medical screenings, ventilation and lighting.

But Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, an abortion rights supporter, vetoed the measure, saying medical professionals - not legislators - should set standards.

Manske had urged board members not to allow pressure from abortion opponents to "stampede" them into revoking Rajanna's license.

"I don't think you've got to throw away a doctor here," he said. "He's a good man."

However, Ostrowski said Rajanna's clinic should have been shut down long before it was.

"What other branch of medicine could get away with any of this?" she said.


The only place you'll find the more gruesome allegations are on extremist pro-life sites and logs or the places that think they count as valid sources of information.

I wonder why there was such a huge gap between the time it was first discovered and their actions to close the clinic and revoke his license.
