"Bickham, whose two Chicago abortion clinics were shut down within the last month, Thursday walked into an operating room at Biogenetics in Indianapolis prepared to perform an abortion. "She's in the best hands. She's getting the best care available," clinic administrator Harvey P. Jefferson assured a "worried" Sun-Times photographer Jim Frost. The Sun-Times sent a reporter, posing as a pregnant woman, and a photographer to Indianapolis in the wake of dangerous medical practices in Chicago abortion clinics disclosed by the Sun-Times and the Better Government Assn. . ."

Expanding their investigation to Indianapolis, the Sun-Times sent a reporter posing as a woman in need of an abortion to an Indianapolis abortion clinic run by Dr. Arnold Bickman, the same physician who operated at two abortion clinics in Chicago, since ordered closed.
