    Shown is the front window of the Women's Medical Society in Philadelphia Thursday, Jan. 20, 2011. Abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, who catered to minorities, immigrants and poor women at the Women's Medical Society, was charged Wednesday Jan. 19, 2011, with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors, prosecutors said Wednesday.

    Delaware officials have suspended the medical license of a second Delaware doctor linked to a Philadelphia abortion provider charged with murdering a patient.

    Attorney General Beau Biden requested on Friday the emergency suspension of Dr. Arturo Apolinario's license. Apolinario will not be allowed to practice medicine pending a hearing.

    Earlier this month, state officials also suspended Dr. Albert Dworkin's license. Authorities contend the two physicians have worked with Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who is charged with eight counts of murder for the deaths of seven babies and one patient at the Women's Medical Society clinic in Philadelphia.

    According to the complaint, Apolinario has worked as medical director of Atlantic Women's Medical Services' in Wilmington.
