A police raid on the car of an abortionist with a history of violations has revealed containers of human tissue —possibly aborted babies — and medical equipment, leading investigators to hypothesize that Michael Arthur Roth may have been performing illegal abortions out of the trunk of his car.
Police in West Bloomfield, Michigan found “14 containers of human tissue, possibly fetuses, medical equipment and large amounts of Fentanyl, a drug used for pain and sedation,” reports ABC affiliate 7 Action News.
The discovery of the contents of Roth’s trunk came about haphazardly. Two weeks ago, Roth hit a child with special needs, who was critically injured. After his car was impounded when police began the investigation into the accident, officers obtained a search warrant to obtain the “black box” data recorder from the car and discovered the human tissue in containers and medical equipment during the search. The Fentanyl was found in the console of the passenger compartment, and no labels or medical records were found with the containers.
All the items discovered were taken to the Oakland County Medical Examiner’s Office. No charges have been filed as yet.
DEA agents, officials from the state attorney general’s office, and state police have since executed a search warrant at Roth’s home in West Bloomfield, and the case is still developing.
According to AbortionDocs.org, Roth’s abortion business is called the Novi Laser and Aesthetic Center.
According to LifeNews, Right to Life of Michigan reports, “Roth has a long history of violations, including two previous at-home abortions he performed in 1998 and 1999.”
The pro-life group released a report in 2012 called “Abortion Abuses and State Regulatory Agency Failure,” which revealed several of Roth’s violations.
“In addition to his at-home abortions, Roth was disciplined in 2002 for drug-related violations, including prescribing drugs without a license,” Right to Life said. “He was disciplined in 2004 for violating patient consent laws and was accused of falsifying medical records by a former employee.”
