Attorneys representing former patients of OB-GYN Fabio Ortega are calling on the Illinois attorney general and the office of outgoing Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx to criminally investigate the troubled doctor and the health systems where he worked.

The request came the same day that one of the women who is suing Ortega and Swedish Covenant Health spoke publicly for the first time, saying she wants justice for herself and others who allege Ortega harmed them.

“I’m not afraid of him,” Ericka Matos said of Ortega, at a news conference Wednesday. “I’m not crying anymore like I used to. I’m strong right now. I want justice for me and for the rest of the ladies.”
