Authorities sue to close Michigan abortion clinic

The Michigan Attorney General and MDCH are suing to close an unlicensed abortion clinic in Lathrup Village operated by Dr. Alberto Hodari. Dr. Hodari has faced lawsuits in the past and said in a 2007 speech to Wayne State Medical Students for Choice that he has a license to lie to patients and doesn't always wash his hands between procedures.
ichigan Attorney General Bill Schuette says his office and the Michigan Department of Community Health are suing a Detroit-area abortion clinic that he says has operating without a required state surgical facility license since last summer.

The lawsuit filed in Oakland County Circuit Court stems from a 2009 health department investigation that found WomanCare of Southfield was violating state fire code rules applying to freestanding surgical outpatient facilities. The clinic is located in Lathrup Village.
