Gary Prohaska, M.D. 78 years old, Planned Parenthood abortionist, and now with an address in Palm Desert California. has an official accusation filed against him on August 12, 2014 by the Medical Board of California.

Prohaska also worked at the San Diego Planned Parenthood at1075 Camino Del Rio He and Planned Parenthood have been on Angie’s List since May 8, 2012.

The Accusation states that the Medical Board received information in December 2013 that Prohaska was mentally impaired. He was ordered to undergo a psychiatric examination on June 17, 2014. The Medical Board-appointed psychiatrist concluded that Prohaska had “moderate severity cognitive impairment” that “renders him unsafe to practice medicine.”

Because Prohaska’s license has been delinquent since January 2014, he is prohibited from practicing.

Prohaska was chief of surgery at Oregon’s largest abortion clinic, Lovejoy Surgicenter, in Portland for several years. He later stepped down and opened a private practice abortion business, Pregnancy Alternatives in Portland, where he continued to perform abortions.

During his time in Portland, he was sued numerous times for malpractice, including once when he left a surgical sponge inside a patient.

In 1995, he moved to Wisconsin where he began performing abortions at two Planned Parenthood locations -one in Milwaukee and the other in Appleton. Prohaska was arrested and charged with using mace on picketers on a public sidewalk outside an
abortion business. Prohaska plead guilty to a violation and was given a small fine.
