An Appeal for Anne Henderson Pollard

Download PDF for this date

Three members of Congress have written to the director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons urging that an outside medical specialist be allowed to treat Anne Henderson Pollard, who is serving a five-year prison sentence as an accessory in the possession of classified information.

In their letter to the director, J. Michael Quinlan, the legislators note that Pollard “suffers from biliary dyskinesia, an extremely rare, painful and difficult-to-treat gastro-intestinal disease” which leaves her “almost constantly bent over with severe abdominal and chest pains.”

The signatories are Reps. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), Bruce Morrison (D-Conn.) and William Hughes (D-N.J.).
