Patel was arrested Dec. 9 at his Warr Acres clinic after an undercover fraud investigation. The clinic, Outpatient Services for Women, has not reopened since his arrest.

A longtime abortion doctor was arrested Tuesday morning at his clinic after an undercover investigation.
Dr. Nareshkumar Patel, 62, is accused of obtaining money by false pretenses three times since June at his Warr Acres clinic, Outpatient Services for Women.
Patel is most known for once burning aborted fetuses in a field.
An Oklahoma County judge authorized his arrest Monday. Prosecutors have 10 days to file a charge.
“I feel like our prayers have been answered,” said Bernadette Klein, a prayer volunteer at Holy Innocents’ Foundation of Oklahoma, which operates a chapel next door to the clinic.
The undercover investigation was initiated by the Oklahoma attorney general’s office after a complaint.
During the undercover investigation, three women posed as patients and visited the clinic for an abortion procedure. They were not actually pregnant.
Each time, Patel did an ultrasound, told the woman she was pregnant and gave her five abortion pills, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. Each woman paid $620.
