PHILADELPHIA – Federal agents have twice raided an abortion clinic in Philadelphia, prompting state authorities to close the facility and suspend the license of the doctor in charge over health and safety risks.
The Pennsylvania Department of State's Board of Medicine said Tuesday that a search of Dr. Kermit Gosnell's abortion and pain management clinic found "deplorable and unsanitary" conditions, blood on the floor, and parts of aborted fetuses in jars.
The temporary suspension of Gosnell's license follows at least two raids at his Family Medical Society by agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency and the FBI.
No criminal charges have been filed. DEA and FBI officials declined to comment, citing the ongoing probe.
Gosnell's number is unlisted and calls to the clinic rang unanswered. It's not known if he has an attorney.
