Ever since the story broke about a Kansas City abortionist accused of eating fetuses questions have been raised about why he wasn’t charged with a crime besides losing his medical license.

The short answer, according to law enforcement authorities involved in the investigation of Krishna Rajanna, is: Because there are no laws against eating fetuses.

After being provided information about horrific conditions of a Kansas abortion clinic nearly two years ago, the Kansas state board in charge of regulating such facilities took months to investigate it and even longer to shut it down.

As WorldNetDaily reported, Krishna Rajanna’s clinic was closed in March, but only after the testimony of law enforcement agents who investigated the grisly charges – including one employee’s contention the abortionist microwaved a fetus and stirred it into his lunch.

The accusation was made by clinic staffer Julia Walton Garcia.

“Julia went on to describe how she and the other girls actually witnessed Rajanna microwave one of the aborted fetuses and stir it into his lunch,” explained Detective William Howard of the Kansas City Police Department, the investigating officer. “Julia claimed that she shared this (information) with some of the other employees, who confirmed that they had seen him do the very same thing.”

Howard was so disturbed by the charge that he took Garcia to the office of Nick Tomasic, the district attorney for Wyandotte County. Though Howard told Garcia that lying to a district attorney would be a serious offense, she told the same story to Tomasic.

But Tomasic’s hands were tied. There were no laws on the books to prohibit an abortionist – or anyone else – from eating a human unborn baby.

Rajanna announced this week he would appeal the revocation of his medical license by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts.

Krishna Rajanna’s license was pulled last Saturday. The unanimous decision ended a drawn-out battle that included startling allegations against Rajanna.

The board unanimously ruled that Rajanna’s license should be pulled after a series of inspections turned up such things as a dead mouse in the clinic hallway, filled syringes in an unlocked refrigerator, carpet in a surgical area and a facility that was generally unkempt.

Rajanna has denied those charges as well. The accusation by Garcia was also raised in a legislative hearing earlier this year.

Rajanna denies the claim and points out that it was made by a disgruntled employee who was later fired.

“They’re just making it up with no proof whatsoever,” he told the Kansas City Star. “We’re always under attack. It’s not something new. They would always take a lie and make it as big as can be and that’s exactly what is happening,” he said.

Rajanna first came to the attention of police in September 2003 when he called the cops to investigate alleged employee theft. Howard 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.

While Rajanna denied the accusation about eating fetuses, he did keep fetuses in Styrofoam cups in the refrigerator along with food and drink.
