According to one anti-abortion group, another Kermit Gosnell type case could be right here in Houston.
Operation Rescue says Dr. Douglas Karpen has performed multiple illegal late-term abortions. Because of those claims the Texas Department of State Health Services and the Harris County District Attorney’s Office are investigating.
"We've been investigating and complaining about Dr. Karpen for over three years," the group's Troy Newman tells KTRH News. "We were contacted by some inside informants, some former employees of Dr. Karpen."
Newman believes Dr Karpen's office should be raided to preserve evidence.
"If this man is committing first-degree murder, which is what we're alleging, then I would expect more than an investigation," he says.
The Harris County DA's office confirmed to KTRH News that Karpen is being investigated. Calls to Karpen's office were not returned.
