Birmingham gendercide abortionist back at work

25 February 2016

Dr Palaniappan Rajmohan was exposed by an undercover investigation into sex-selective abortion

A Birmingham doctor who was caught agreeing to perform an illegal sex-selective abortion has had a three month ban from the profession lifted.

Dr Palaniappan Rajmohan is now free to return to performing abortions, despite admitting he brought "disgrace to the profession."

Dr Rajmohan, who had worked at the Calthorpe Clinic in Edgbaston, was caught red-handed on tape by undercover journalists from the Daily Telegraph in 2012 offering to falsify abortion papers in order to authorise an abortion on a 12-week pregnant mother.

Token punishment revoked

The government maintains that abortion on the grounds of gender alone is illegal under the 1967 Abortion Act.

But despite arranging for the illegal killing of an unborn child, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) refused to bring criminal proceedings against Dr Rajmolan.

And now even the slap-on-the-wrist three month suspension he received as a token punishment has been revoked by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service.

22-year-old pro-life campaigner facing legal costs

Aisling Hubert is still facing over £22,000 in legal costs

In stark contrast, a 22-year-old pro-life campaigner is still facing tens of thousands of pounds in legal fees after the CPS blocked her attempt to bring Dr Rajmolan to justice.

As SPUC reported in December, Ms Aisling Hubert brought a private prosecution against the abortionist and another doctor from Manchester, Prabha Sivaraman – both of whom were exposed by the Telegraph’s investigation.

The CPS then forcibly took over the private suit only to drop it. In doing so they admitted that there was sufficient evidence to prosecute, but - unbelievably - now argued that the case would not be in the public interest.

As a result of the CPS’s actions, Ms Hubert is now facing over £22,000 in legal costs.

Marie Stopes takeover

The Calthorpe clinic where Dr Rajmohan previously worked was taken over by Marie Stopes International (MSI) shortly after the scandal broke. It is now unknown where he works.

MSI has been criticised for running abortion centres in one-child policy China, where widespread sex-selective abortion has led to millions of missing girls.

The other main abortion provider in the UK, the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) is on the record as tacitly supporting sex-selective abortion, claiming that "the law is silent on the matter."
