The medical director of an abortion clinic has accused regulators of carrying out a “witch-hunt” after one of its doctors was suspended and the clinic banned from performing further surgeries.

AHPRA initially announced it was conducting a special investigation into several practitioners at Melbourne’s Hampton Park Women’s Health Clinic last week, following the death of a 30-year-old woman Harjit Kaur in January.
