The Israel Medical Association has appealed to the American Medical Association to ensure proper medical care for Anne Henderson Pollard, wife of Jonathan Jay Pollard, an American convicted last year of spying for Israel.

Anne Pollard, serving two concurrent five-year prison sentences as an accessory to her husband’s espionage, is reportedly seriously ill with a stomach disorder. Dr. Ram Ishai, chairman of the Israel Medical Association, has written to Dr. James Sammons, chairman of the AMA, describing her condition.

According to Ishai, she has developed severe breathing problems, in addition to serious internal bleeding, and is very weak.
