A Kansas City abortionist is out of business after investigators discovered a grisly house of horrors at his clinic—with fetuses kept in Styrofoam cups in his refrigerator and one employee accusing him of microwaving one and stirring it into his lunch.
The unsanitary conditions in Krishna Rajanna’s clinic prompted legislative approval of new abortion regulations in Kansas, a bill that was vetoed by the governor. Rajanna’s activities have reportedly been the subject of law-enforcement investigations for nearly two years.
Rajanna first came to the attention of police in September 2003 when he called police to investigate alleged employee theft.
Detective William Howard of the Kansas City Police Department responded.
“I thought I had heard and seen every vile, disgusting crime scene, but was in for a new shock when I started this investigation,” he would say later. Howard turned the matter over to the local district attorney and three state agencies.
Topping the list of horrors was an employee’s account that she and others witnessed Rajanna “microwave one of the aborted fetuses and stir it into his lunch,” as Howard recalled earlier this year when testifying before a Kansas House committee.
Rajanna denied the accusation. But he did keep fetuses in Styrofoam cups in the refrigerator along with food and drink.
“Dr. Rajanna lacked personal hygiene,” testified Howard. “His hair was messy, hands dirty, and his clothing was wrinkled and stained. He put on old, used foot booties while we were there.”
Howard testified the clinic was dark, dingy, had poor lighting and smelled musty. There were dirty dishes in the break-room sink and on the table, trash everywhere, and roaches crawling on the countertops. Howard was afraid to sit down.
