Former abortionist at: Manhattan Women’s Medical (closed).

Abortionist Craig Linder, MD, was disciplined in NY for multiple violations. The NY State Board for Professional Medical Conduct detailed the following charges.

On Aug. 5-7, 1996, Linder performed an abortion on a 21-year-old patient in New York.  The Board found no records of a patient exam, patient medical history, or blood pressure readings for the abortion patient. The Board found that Linder “inappropriately administered” 30 cc of Marcaine to the patient, who first went into seizures, and then into cardiac arrest. Linder had no emergency equipment on hand. The patient died on location and her dead body was removed from the premises. Dr. Linder did not document the events during the abortion.

In a separate case in 1993, Dr. Linder failed to follow up with a patient after cancerous cells were found in her pap smear.   The Board charged Linder with gross negligence, incompetence, negligence on more than one occasion, and failure to maintain accurate records. He was placed on probation for two years, and permanently restricted to performing abortions “in a facility defined in and governed by Article 28 of the Public Health Law.” See disciplinary documents at right.
