"It's not what you see, it's what you get"

The Detroit television station mentioned below has another video about an abortionist named "Dr. P" (short for Pornpichit Sethavarangura) in Detroit. He offers "bargain abortions" for $150. The station takes a hidden camera into his office and asks him (among other things) if he'd perform an abortion on a 14-year-old girl without parental consent.

It's just a choice between a woman and her doctor, right?

It appears "Dr. P" has had previous run-ins with unsatisfied patients. He was sued in 2006 for medical malpractice after one of his clients lost one of her twins in-utero. That case was dismissed because the plaintiff failed to file a valid affidavit.

There are records of another case from the Michigan Court of Appeals where he was sued but the records don't give details of what he was sued for.

    i too had a run in with Dr. "P"in 2000/. he had an office on gratiot and 7 mile before he moved it to 7 mile and woodward. i first started prenatal care with him on gratiot and finished on 7 mile and woodward. when i first went to his office on gratiot i was the only one that was keeping their child everyone else was having abotions,other women were saying they liked him because he would accept "food Stamps" if they were short on cash in lieu of money. i did not let him deliver my child, although i continued to see him through the duration of my pregnancy care.
