Former abortion doctor dumps files in school bin
OVERLAND PARK | More than 1,000 private abortion records from a defunct clinic have been found discarded in a recycling bin outside an elementary school near Kansas City, prompting a police investigation and outrage from people on both sides of the abortion debate.
The patient records found Saturday came from Affordable Medical and Surgical Services, which closed after its doctor, Krishna Rajanna, lost his medical license in 2005. The records detail names, birth dates, telephone numbers, Social Security numbers and the patients’ health histories, including whether any abortions were performed, the Kansas City Star reported.
From 2000 to 2005, Mr. Rajanna was either fined or disciplined four times by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts and inspectors who visited his clinic in 2005 and reported it was not clean.
Mr. Rajanna said he threw the personal documents into recycling bins at Brookridge Elementary School on Friday.
“I was under the impression that these would not be seen by anyone,”
