At least 12 women have died following legal abortions in Illinois walk-in abortion clinics. Although state health officials knew of not a single clinic death just a week ago, the Sun-Times and Better Government Assn. have learned of a dozen women who suffered fatal infections or bled to death after undergoing abortion procedures in state-regulated clinics.

The seventh installment of the Sun-Times' "Abortion Profiteers" series reports that at least twelve women have died after receiving abortions at Illinois abortion clinics.
