The Orlando, Florida abortion clinic that made national headlines for giving away coupons to poor women in a crisis pregnancy so they can save money on their abortions is taking its scheme even further.

A court challenge to a Mississippi law that could close the last remaining abortion clinic in that state has been set for trial beginning on March 3, 2014. At issue is a provision of the law that requires abortionists to maintain local hospital privileges.

Derzis employs out-of-state abortionists who fly into Jackson, Mississippi, to do abortions then fly out, leaving women suffering complications without continuity of care. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
