/ -- Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) today slammed the Georgia Composite Medical Board for its outrageous and immoral decision to reinstate the medical license for disgraced late-term abortionist Tyrone C. Malloy.
"This is a flagrant example of the medical community circling the wagons to protect their own despite patients' safety," said GRTL President Ricardo Davis. "If they're going to put cronyism above ethics they don't deserve to hold this critical position."
Davis called on Governor Deal to immediately demand all 16 board members to resign, or force them out if they refuse.
Malloy, who was, and still is director of Old National GYN in College Park, was censured and fined $10,000 by the board due to a 25-week late term abortion that left a woman dead after suffering heavy bleeding and cardiac arrest.
He also spent two years in prisonduring which time he surrendered his license--for fraudulently billing Medicaid more than $386,000.
The board apparently attempted to keep its decision to reinstate Malloy's license last October as quiet as possible. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that the board did not follow its usual practice of posting the order on its website. Instead, the only public record was a line in that month's meeting minutes.
U.S. News & World Report runs a websitehealth.usnews.comwhich lists profiles of doctors and hospitals. The one for Malloy says he is affiliated with multiple hospitals in the area, including DeKalb Medical Center and Emory University Hospital.
DeKalb Medical Center confirmed to GRTL that Malloy is on their staff, but Emory said it has no record of him being involved in any way with Emory.
