"Dr. Mahendra Amin, the physician accused of performing unwanted or unnecessary gynecological procedures at an immigrant detention facility,  is not certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG), The Daily Beast reported."

"Everybody he sees has a hysterectomy-just about everybody," Wooten said of one doctor who she described as "the uterus collector."

"Amin, The Daily Beast reported, has maintained an active license with the Georgia Composite Medical Board and has practiced in Douglas, Georgia for at least twenty years. In addition to working in his own private practice, he has served as the medical director for the labor and delivery department at Irwin County Hospital.

According to court records obtained by the outlet, Amin has settled lawsuits with at least two former patients or patients' families. In one case, Amin was accused of discharging a pregnant patient when her test results showed "life-threatening abnormal lab values." After returning to the hospital with contractions, bleeding, and high blood pressure, the suit alleges, the patient received an emergency cesarean section and died thereafter. "


So ICE hires fetishists and butchers as doctors.

Amin was identified as the doctor named in a complaint filed to the Office of the Inspector general on behalf of a whistleblower who previously worked as a nurse in the Irwin County Detention Center

Sounds like it's time for some severe justice to be dealt ... to the whistleblower, sadly.

I don't see why it should bother them. They only care about life when it's a fetus. No fetus involved here, so they won't give a shiat.

For anyone who would like to know a bit more about the subject of eugenics in the United States, I would like to recommend the book, 'War Against the Weak' by Edwin Black. It is eye-opening on a number of levels and important history we should probably all be familiar with.

Medic Zero:  Nice to know we advanced to having our own Mengele.

The Right Stuff
gave a little attention to what german scientists voluntarily sought sponsor of their work from Nazi managers, and Boys From Brazil through a net over what number of paperclips were lost in the name of expediency and, well, an elite has to have something to hold to be an elite.

Spike Lee made a freshman film (bank heist plots and horror are Hollywood's litmus for upcoming talent = if you make money with those two seemingly exhausted tropes, producers who have bank accounts will trust your aesthetic choices involving "art") using the booty of the Wolf and his lieutenants as a narrative device. But "facts" about the attempted Reich are few and far between when it comes to those final days of its defeat. As they should have been...then.

Only relatively recently, there's that fun movie about Nazi art with a star-studded cast that includes George Clooney that's "more" factual than an elite has allowed before, so it's a mistake to gloss Mengele's records and primary source de-briefing interviews as a "known" reference. Especially his amorality married to grotesque techniques of savagely cutting and submitting human subjects to conditions westerners glibly describe as medieval. It's a mistake too assume his methods were not steeped in the conventions and assumptions of medicine from that time and his license to work without ethic wouldn't seek answers medical practice still seeks to ask.

Because those records and clinical descriptions were captured, and most likely by the military services of the United States.

If an investigation shows this to be true, we need to find out how far up the chain of command that his actions were approved of or even directed.   It will be very easy for ICE to claim this is the action of a rogue doctor.

Sure, just a coincidence that the doctor used just so happened to also be a doctor that doesn't feel the need to voluntarily join a a board certification organization.

Almost as if someone who was diligent about such things wouldn't be party to such acts.

Totally coincidence.

This, like locking up kids, and their parents and separating them, is a lot like what the F*cking NAZI's did.
Pretty soon they'll have to start gassing people because they have no more room in their Concentration Camps.
And then they'll have to burn the bodies to cover up theirCrimes Against Humanity.

Forced sterilization is all too American. It was even legal, even mandatory in many states till the 70's.
 
2020-09-21 7:32:58 AM  
I suspect this guy's solution to almost everything is a hysterectomy.

He'll show his rate of performing hysterectomies in ICE detainees is not significantly higher than in the rest of his practice.

He'll get a public rebuke, but no meaningful disciplinary action. By then, everyone's attention will be drawn to the next shiny thing, and nobody will care any more.

He's a licensed doctor and the accusation is that he's performing too many hysterectomies. Without being a doctor and knowing the medical histories involved it is impossible to know if the surgeries were needed. By all means though feel free to rant about Nazi eugenics.

You've surely seen similar staffing at county hospitals
