Octomom's fertility doctor has license revoked

The doctor responsible for helping Nadya "Octomom" Suleman to give birth to 14 children has had his license revoked.
Dr Michael Kamrava, who gave Nadya repeated in-vitro treatments, admitted to implanting the now 34-year-old mother with 12 embryos in 2008 — six times the normal number for women her age, the UK's Daily Mail reported.
Nadya now has two-year-old octuplets, six boys and two girls, as well as six other children who were also conceived through IVF.
During the investigation into his practice, Dr Kamrava was accused of being grossly negligent not only with Nadya but two other women. One of those women was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer after receiving fertility treatment from him and another suffered serious complications after she became pregnant with quadruplets.
The Medical Board of California said it had moved to "protect the public" stating that Dr Kamrava's license will officially be revoked on July 1, 2011.
Dr Kamrava's lawyer argued that Nadya had failed to follow through with terminating an excessive number of foetuses. His attempts failed but the board concluded it was not the responsibility of the patient.
The investigation into Dr Kamrava's practice began not long after Nadya's octuplets were born in January 2009.
