A gynecologists in Huntsville, Alabama, who have been performing abortions in violation of federal law, are now facing disciplinary action by their state’s health department.
The Huntsville City Council on Monday voted to terminate the doctors license.
The city’s attorney general is now investigating whether the doctors had their license revoked or are currently being investigated for violating the state’s abortion law.
The doctor is currently being held at the city jail pending his hearing on Monday.
The county attorney’s office has also launched an investigation into the doctors actions.
According to the Huntsville News-Sentinel, the doctor’s attorney said that the Hunts County Health Department, a branch of the Alabama Department of Health, did not have the authority to terminate his license and would be unable to do so because he was practicing without insurance.
The Alabama House voted unanimously in April to enact a bill that would allow physicians to refuse to perform abortions and to have the doctors health care license revoked if they do not have a state-issued health certificate that is in compliance with state and federal law.
Under the Alabama Medical Examiners Act, a doctor must have a valid health certificate, a state license and a valid state identification card.
The medical examiner, or physician, determines whether the certificate is valid.
The law requires the doctor to notify the medical examiner of any changes to his/her medical certification.
However, in practice, doctors are not required to provide their medical certification to the medical examiners office.
However, under the law, physicians are not allowed to refuse medical care to anyone without obtaining a state certificate that they are qualified to provide medical care.
In March, the Hunts Valley Daily News reported that the doctors’ license was revoked after an investigation by the Alabama Ethics Commission found the doctor did not comply with state rules governing medical licensure.
The law does not require a medical license or certification to perform medical procedures, the newspaper reported.
The only requirement is that a doctor undergo an ethics education and be approved by the ethics commission.
