A gynecologist in Florida has been arrested for performing an abortion on a woman who was in a coma.
The 32-year-old woman, who had been pregnant for more than three months, became unconscious in her bed at her home and was taken to a hospital, where doctors discovered a ruptured appendix.
She died a few days later.
The doctor, who was not named, was charged with second-degree murder, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
The prosecutor said the man had the right to abort the fetus but failed to act in the right manner, according the newspaper.
The woman’s death came on the heels of another deadly abortion clinic shooting in Mississippi, where three people were killed and six others injured in a shooting.
