September 15, 2010BARNSTABLE — The doctor who performed an abortion on Laura Hope Smith of Sandwich three years ago and admitted that his actions led to her death was escorted out of Barnstable Superior Court in handcuffs yesterday.

Rapin Osathanondh, 67, will serve at least three months in jail as a result of a plea negotiated Monday between his attorneys and Cape and Islands First Assistant District Attorney Brian Glenny. Osathanondh will serve that time in the Dukes County Jail in Edgartown, according to the plea agreement. He was sentenced to a 2½-year jail term with six months to serve. However, the plea agreement allows him out on parole after serving three months.

Damn. Yet another controversial news item. But here goes.

I know this man. His methods are superior. Have watched him perform this procedure more times than I`d have liked to, unfortunately.
Tho his personna is arrogant at times with his staff, mostly due to his Thailand upbringing. He expected nothing but the best from his employees. His intellect is outstanding in his field.

I do feel compassion for this families` loss. Having said that, clearly her background of being an orphan and such is a plea for sympathy.
Anyone undergoing such a procedure sign multiple documents - many of which state in no uncertain terms that there are risks. As with all types of medical surgical procedures. Its a choice to sign or not. As well as proper methods of birth control...being more than readily available to ALL. Enough.
