Mississippi is working to close the state's only remaining abortion clinic since it can't meet new standards. Otherwise, the state's clinic has a rather sordid history.

The current owner of Jackson Women's Health Organization is Dianne Derzis, whose Birmingham abortion clinic was shut down after three abortion patients were sent to hospitals in one day. Inspectors found 76 pages of violations. Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue has checked the background of some of the past abortionists in the Mississippi clinic.

Sullenger, Cheryl"There was one abortionist, his name was Malachy DeHenre," she describes. "He was suspended in Mississippi and two other states after he botched an abortion on a poor woman that sent her to the hospital for an emergency hysterectomy, and he was also sued for malpractice in several other cases."

DeHenre is currently in prison after being convicted of murdering his wife.

More evidence reveals the dissolute background of another abortionist.

"His name was Milan Chepko. He was convicted of a felony involving moral turpitude in 1991, and his medical license was revoked," Sullenger says. "And there were other abortionists who were also caught operating substandard abortion clinics and injuring women."

The only remaining abortion clinic in Jackson, Mississippi, is in trouble because of a new state law that requires abortionists to be OB-GYNs and have hospital-admitting privileges. None of the hospitals in the area will accept them.

Attacked by security guard

Early on Wednesday, one of the pro-lifers outside the Jackson clinic was attacked. A church service was being held and leaflets distributed on the public sidewalk led by Doug Lane, a board member of Pro-Life Mississippi and director of Pastors for Life Mississippi.

"They took a lawn sprinkler and placed in on the public sidewalk where we normally stand and turned that on," he tells OneNewsNow, "and there was a discussion between one of our people and the security guard about how could they do that."

While the pro-lifers posed no threat, Lane says evidently the security guard did not like something that was said. "And he pulled his mace out, lunged forward, and sprayed this gentleman and his minor son with mace," he explains. "They were standing on the public sidewalk. I was about 15 feet from there, and he came up and sprayed me." ( See related AP story) (See video below)

Lane has already been in touch with attorneys who are making plans for legal action. As soon as he recovers from the mace, Lane plans to be back at the clinic to convince women to give their unborn child life.
