A doctor with a questionable past is reportedly aborting babies at two Louisiana clinics, one in New Orleans and the other in Baton Rouge. According to Louisiana Right to Life, Dr. Kevin Govan Work is working at the clinics as a solo practitioner, which the group says is a violation of his probation.

“Dr. Kevin Work, by practicing in these two OBGYN-focused abortion facilities as a solo practitioner without another doctor on site, appears from publicly accessible documents to be in clear violation of his probation,” wrote Benjamin Clapper, executive director of Louisiana Right to Life in a letter to the state.

U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham, R-Alto, called for Gov. John Bel Edwards to fire Louisiana Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rebekah Gee over the Work matter.

“If Gov. Edwards is truly pro-life, then he should take swift action by firing Gee and replacing her with a secretary who understands that no baby or mother should ever be subjected to the alleged heinous actions of Kevin Work,” Abraham said.
