Hot line deceptions sell most abortions

During a five-month investigation, the Sun-Times and Better Government Assn. found that some abortion profiteers advertise under a number of deceptive names to entice women into their Michigan Avenue clinics. In those clinics, telephone sales techniques are monitored more carefully than a doctor's operating techniques. New counselors or nursing assistants learn quickly that the telephone is the clinic's most important instrument.

In this twelfth installment of "The Abortion Profiteers," the Sun-Times reports on the dishonest hotline and counselling services provided by walk-in abortion clinics.
