The Age is reporting:

Health authorities are concerned that an anaesthestist working in an abortion clinic deliberately infected 12 patients with hepatitis C.

Victoria’s chief health officer Dr Jon Carnie said the doctor had been working at Croydon Day Surgery between 2008 and 2009 when he allegedly infected the female patients at the clinic, which is the state’s only late-term abortion clinic.

No word yet on why he might have done this. But are we supposed to be shocked by the the fact that someone who helps babies get ripped limb from limb wasn’t…quite normal.
