Auckland contraceptive bungle leads to 'conveyor belt' abortion clinic inquiry

A damning report by the Health and Disabilities Commissioner has recommended an audit of the services provided by the country's top abortion clinic.

It comes after a woman complained she had a long-term contraceptive device inserted in her uterus without her consent at the time of an abortion in 2010.

The woman, whose identity is protected, only discovered the intrauterine contraceptive device after going for medical tests when she tried repeatedly and was unable to fall pregnant three years later.

Investigation by the Health and Disability Commissioner has found a doctor at the Epsom Day Clinic mistakenly inserted the contraceptive device (IUCD) without the woman's consent.

It found that to be in breach of the patient's rights.

The doctor has also been found to have failed in his duty of providing health services with "reasonable care and skill".

Over 800 women have their pregnancies terminated at the Epsom Day Clinic each year. In the report the way in which staff at the clinic deal with the high turnover of patients is likened to a 'conveyor belt' .

The doctor who performed the termination told the Commissioner he performs up to 10 procedures a day and cannot recall the specific patient concerned.

10 murders a day and the article is focused on the IUD he inserted. He probably was trying to slow business down so he could do more golfing.

There are abortionists and clinic workers who are really disturbed by repeat customers. It’s not always about the money. Sometimes it’s about stopping people from messing up their lives, or their children’s lives.

The abortionist might figure, why let her conceive another baby six months later that she’s just going to get rid of, or give birth to it in bad circumstances.

For all the rhetoric of the abortion industry, many, many of the women who have abortions are not responsible people making informed and reasonable decisions; they are feckless, dysfunctional, crisis-prone, unstable and unhappy.

Some of the women are, say, the college girl who makes one mistake and gets on with her life, but a whole lot fall in the first category.
