Northland Family Planning Clinic

NAF Clinic has history of malpractice

Northland Family Planning is a National Abortion Federation member with several clinics in Michigan.

Cherly S. alleged that she underwent an abortion at Northland’s clinic in Romulus on July 29, 1983. She was 6-10 weeks pregnant. The doctor told Cherly that her abortion was successful, but there was no fetal tissue upon gross examination. A pathologist diagnosed decidua and other tissues but no fetal fragments. Cherly repeatedly contacted the clinic to report lack of menses, but was assured “there was nothing to worry about.” She sought care elsewhere on November 9, and was diagnosed 5-6 months pregnant. Her infant girl was born March 7, 1984. (Wayne County Circuit Court Case No. 84-421422-NM)
