They are identical twins with identical cons. They bill themselves as "counselors." But their business is sales, and they use every trick in the book to peddle abortions to confused and frightened women. Victoria Sanders and Valerie McCullough operate competing abortion referral services out of fancy suites and between them advertise half a dozen "abortion hot lines" in four states.

Description:In the sixth installment of "Abortion Profiteers" series, the Sun-Times reports on an ethically questionable abortion-referral business, whose hotline operators are paid commission on every abortion they "sell."
