A Delaware abortion doctor faces charges of unsafe and unsanitary practices.
The state’s medical licensing officials filed a formal complaint last week, accusing Dr. Timothy F. Liveright of engaging in “unprofessional, disrespectful and inappropriate conduct,” which reportedly included sexual harassment of female employees.
Liveright, 68, who performed abortions at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Wilmington, voluntarily surrendered his medical license in Delaware last month, saying he “retired from practicing medicine in Delaware and [had] no intentions of ever seeking [to] practice there in the future.”
Officials say he represents a “clear and immediate danger to the public.”
“They’re jumping on whatever they can jump on,” Liveright said. “I don’t know what their agenda is, but I don’t think I’m a danger to the public.”
He’s accused of multiple acts of incompetence and negligence, specifically citing abortions performed between Feb. 12 and March 13 this year.
Charges against him include oversedating patients, performing unnecessary suction procedures and failing to act in a way that would avoid unnecessary complications for patients.
