A Kansas City, Kansas, abortion doctor whose case became the focus of a legislative debate over regulating abortion clinics has lost his license.
The State Board of Healing Arts voted today to revoke the license of Doctor Krishna Rajanna. A board inspector who made two surprise visits to the clinic in March says the place was filthy.
The inspector says he found syringes of medications kept in an unlocked refrigerator -- and he also found a dead mouse in the hall.
Rajanna says he hasn't had any complaints in his ten years of practice, and he thinks he should have had a chance to fix any deficiencies.
But the board says his clinic was a public health danger.
Rajanna can appeal the decision to district court.
