Kanawha Delegate Asks Medical Board to Investigate Doctor’s Abortion Injury Claims

Attached is a letter from Delegate Nancy Guthrie, D-Kanawha, to the West Virginia Board of Medicine, asking the board to conduct an investigation into whether Charleston gynecologist and anti-abortion advocate Dr. Byron Calhoun either made false statements about alleged injuries stemming from abortions, or in the alternative, knew about alarming substandard care and failed to report it.

“Given Dr. Calhoun’s position in teaching future physicians at West Virginia University, and the impact his statements have made on matters of significant public importance in our state, your review is critical,” Delegate Guthrie stated.
