New York City- Priests for Life, a national anti-abortion organization, expressed concern over the recent hospitalization of a abortion patient yesterday at Women's Health Care Services, a late term abortion mill run by George Tiller in Wichita, KS.

"The more you look, the more you find," said Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, referring to the cases of injury and death at legal abortion clinics across America. "Over ten years ago, I had the privilege of assisting in gathering information for the book "Lime 5," which documents how unsafe our nation's legal abortion clinics are. The only thing that has changed since then is that the numbers of injuries and deaths have continued to grow. Anyone concerned about women's health should join us in calling for a full-scale investigation of the fact that what is happening in abortion clinics is far more than the ordinary incidence of complications that result from any kind of surgery."

Echoing the question of the pro-life people at the hospital in Wichita yesterday as the abortionist arrived, Fr. Frank asked, "How many more women have to be injured before you stop, George?"

Priests for Life urges women who have been hurt by abortion to seek assistance through the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. More information is available at http://www.silentnomoreawareness.org/ or http://www.priestsforlife.org/.
