The news is out: [NEW YORK (AP) — A former New York gynecologist accused of sexually abusing dozens of patients, including the wife of former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, was charged Wednesday with attacking girls and women for nearly two decades using the cover of medical examinations.
Prosecutors described the doctor, Robert A. Hadden, 62, as a “predator in a white coat,” accusing him of singling out young and unsuspecting victims, including a young girl he’d delivered at birth.
The federal charges will be the second time Hadden is prosecuted over alleged abuse of patients. He surrendered his medical license in a 2016 plea deal with the Manhattan District Attorney that didn’t require him to serve any jail time.
Outrage over that light punishment built as the #MeToo movement gained momentum and more women told their stories publicly, including Evelyn Yang, who earlier this year told CNN that Hadden assaulted her in 2012, including when she was seven months pregnant.]
A doctor is considered a pillar of society, just because he passed an exam and received a piece of paper.
Most doctors know nothing about the human body. I went for a prostate check 2 months ago, the quack came in, jammed his finger up my butt, no sweet talk, no flower, no kisses. And he had the gall to send me a bill.
