HYANNIS, Massachusetts, October 1, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A Massachusetts woman is demanding the authorities take action against an abortionist, who destroyed her daughter's unborn child while she died of cardiac arrest on his operating table.
Operation Rescue reports that Eileen Smith has initiated legal action against abortionist Rabin Osathanondh in order to prevent her daughter's cruel death from being merely "swept under the rug" as frequently occurs after abortion tragedies.
Smith's 22-year old daughter, Laura Hope Smith, walked into Osathanondh's Women Health Clinic in Hyannis on September 13, 2007, as a healthy young woman engaged to be married before she died on Osathanondh's abortion table. A friend had taken Laura to the abortion clinic without the knowledge of her mother, Eileen, who told Operation Rescue that she never realized her daughter was 13 weeks pregnant and considering an abortion until both her daughter and the child were dead.
Early reports had indicated that Smith's daughter had died of hemorrhage from the abortion, but Smith contends this information is erroneous. "There was no bleeding. She stopped breathing and went into cardiac arrest," said Smith.
Laura's death shocked Smith and her husband Tom, both professed Christians active with the Calvary Chapel of Sandwich around Cape Cod, who adopted Laura as an orphan from Honduras. Laura had been previously adopted and then abandoned by an abusive American couple, when the Smiths took her into their home and lovingly raised her. Laura was an active member of the church and graduated from Upper Cape Tech with a degree in cosmetology.
"My daughter was 22, healthy, and alive when she walked into that clinic," Smith said. "She didn't even have a cold. There is no reason for her to be dead."
Smith told OR that she met privately for one hour with Osathanondh, who refused to meet her accompanied by her husband and only alone in a public place. Osathanondh admitted to Smith that her daughter died as a result of the abortion, but refused to accept any culpability.
The details of Laura's death on the abortion table sickened and horrified Smith, who says she must keep them confidential until she takes legal action against Osathanondh for killing her daughter.
Over 600 people attended Laura's funeral and one young woman changed her mind about abortion after hearing the Smith's testimony of their daughter's tragic death.
However, Smith is worried that both the press and the authorities may hush-up her daughter's death. A local newspaper had promised to publish a full-length interview with Smith on the day of her daughter's funeral, but has since reneged on the article.
A complaint has been filed against Osathanondh with the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine regarding the abortion death. In 2001 Osathanondh made headlines for threatening in a fit of rage to murder five nurses for misplacing his paperwork.
Operation Rescue is urging supporters to call the local district attorney to request a formal investigation of Rabin Osathanondh in the abortion death of Laura Hope Smith.

At least one life was spared because of this tragedy.
These abortionists are butchers. all of them!
These multiple murders are common in abortion mills. Usually they are covered up. And so also will this killing.
I cannot imagine the pain of this poor woman, knowing that the next two generations of her progeny were brutally slaughtered by Planned Parenthood.
No kidding. Abortion is the heart and soul of the ruling democrat party.

Nice objective, let-the-community-know-the-facts "newspaper." A double homicide and not a word.
The left is delighted that 3500+ babies are murdered every day in abortion mills, I’m sure they think that a few dead mothers will mean even less babies.
Oh, and what the h*ll kind of name is “Rapin Osathanondh”?
Must be a top doctor. A real pro.
Nice record of complaints at the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine you got there, Osathanondh.
“Im sure they think that a few dead mothers will mean even less babies.”
Yeah, but a ‘few dead mothers’ means there’s less production of fetal victims. He’s probably mad that he killed the producer of many more fetuses. That’s what’s probably got the killer mad.
Gee, if she and her baby were killed in a car accident, nothing would be said. Hmmmm!
This happens far more often than is reported. It is sad. I still hear the lie repeated that abortion is safer than child birth which just isn’t true.
I wrote this poem a while back:
I Was Yours
Momma don’t cry, you didn’t want to hold me.
Momma you’ve got pride,
No cries from my cradle,
Momma you’re alive, why did you hate me?
You didn’t even try,
When the Doctor came to take me.
Momma oh why, didn’t you love me?
You didn’t see my eyes, my fingers, my toes,
You never even saw my cute little nose,
Momma I was your little baby...
Did you look to your tummy when I was
inside?Did you feel my kick, when I was
alive? Momma I loved you, didn’t you know?
I needed you Mommy, I needed to grow.
I needed your kisses; I needed your hugs,
I needed to feel, that I was loved.
You said it was your choice,that I must die,
That I wasn’t really, really alive...
You weren’t ready for me, but I had no
choice,you were my Mommy, I was yours.
A very poignant poem, sadly it is the truth for well over 1 MILLION babies a year in this country.
Rabin Osathanondh prefers to think of the 22 year old woman’s death as an abortion in the 91st trimester.
I like the poem. I love babies, can’t see how anyone could murder one.
Rather sad ping.
“In 2001 Osathanondh made headlines for threatening in a fit of rage to murder five nurses for misplacing his paperwork.”
Five murders? That would likely have been a slow day for this minion of Satan.
Perhaps two lives, if this case example were to be the result.
...but the Left told us that there would be no more botched abortions once it became legal. It’s so safe a procedure that unlike ANY other medical procedure, parental release is not needed for a minor.
It's a Thai name, I believe.
