Dr. Matthew Kachinas Suicidal for Aborting the Wrong, Healthy Twin

Dr. Matthew Kachinas, an abortion doctor in Sarasota, FL has lost his license for mistakenly aborting a healthy twin during a procedure targeting a deformed fetus.

After the board’s unanimous vote to revoke his license, Dr. Kachinas appeared stunned and confused. “What does that mean, revocation? I don’t understand.”

Department of Health officials told him he could appeal to the courts and suggested he consult a lawyer. But a despondent Kachinas told a reporter after the hearing that he intended to kill himself. Police took him to a hospital for evaluation.

Kachinas had blamed faulty ultrasound equipment for the 2006 mistake. He was targeting a fetus with Down syndrome and signs of a heart defect.  Although never having done the procedure before, he did not want to disappoint the patient by telling her ‘no’.

Dr. Kachinas represented himself before the board and in a previous hearing, Health News Florida reported, he spent most of his time arguing two less serious allegations, admitting in the twin case he “screwed up.”

     I know Dr. Kachinas personally.  He is clinically depressed and would treat himself for the depression instead of getting correctly diagnosed and treated.  He is also a heavy drinker and a drug addict.  He was caught stealing heavy duty pain meds from an office he worked at but ultimately the owners of that business still kept him employed.  He is his own worst enemy and in my opinion should not be practicing medicine at all.
