Jian-Qing Zhu required a blood transfusion and emergency surgery for a ruptured fallopian tube, a hemorrhage, and a punctured lung. The near-fatal botched abortion prompted an investigation into Schwalben's practice.  At his filthy clinics, investigators discovered rusted needles, horse medicines, expired barbiturates, and partial fetuses in unmarked jars.  Schwalben was arrested Aug. 8, 1996, and was charged with 12 counts of medical misconduct, gross negligence, incompetence, moral unfitness, and fraud. His license was suspended and later revoked.
