(LifeNews) A Georgia medical board quietly gave back a medical license to a notorious late-term abortionist after he allegedly killed a woman in a botched abortion and defrauded Medicaid of hundreds of thousands of dollars, a local news investigation found.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports abortionist Tyrone C. Malloy has had his medical license since October when the Georgia Composite Medical Board reinstated it.

The newspaper described the move as “the latest example of the extraordinary deference shown to physicians by the state panel that regulates medical doctors.”
