Evelyn Yang, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate, Andrew Yang has revealed that her gynecologist sexually assaulted her while she was pregnant with their child.
Evelyn alleges that Rober Hadden’s asked her inappropriate questions and called for “unnecessary” appointments when she was his patient back in 2012.
She also claims that during one appointment, he undressed her, and she says that Hadden went on to “examine me internally, ungloved,” when she was seven months pregnant with son Christopher, per CNN.
She added that he would ask her inappropriate questions about her sex life with her husband.
“There was absolutely no premise for that line of questioning, and it seemed like he just wanted to hear about me talking about sex,” she told the outlet. “What I kept sticking to was this: ‘OK, so my doctor is pervy. I have a pervy doctor, but I’m going to focus on having a healthy baby,’ and the idea of changing doctors was overwhelming for me.”
She continued, “I knew it was happening. I could feel it. I remember trying to fix my eyes on a spot on the wall and just trying to avoid seeing his face as he was assaulting me, just waiting for it to be over,” she said, adding that Hadden didn’t even wash his hands before leaving the room.
She came forward after several other women also accused Hadden of sexual assault. Hadden was indicted on multiple felony sex charges. Hadden pled guilty to two of the nine counts against him — one count of forcible touching and one count of third-degree sexual abuse. He has also lost his license and must register as a sex offender.
