Jackson, Mississippi A complaint filed against Mississippi's only abortion clinic alleges the facility has not been in compliance with state law.

The Clarion-Ledger reports that the complaint was filed Thursday with the Mississippi Department of Health. It questions statistics reported to the agency by Jackson Women's Health Organization and asks officials to conduct an investigation.

The letter is signed by leaders of Pro-Life Mississippi, Physicians for Life Mississippi, Mississippi Right To Life and Pro Life Action Network. The groups say they are concerned that the clinic is "in a continuing state of non-compliance with the Abortion Reporting Law enacted in 2004, Miss. Code Ann. 41-41-78."

Messages left Saturday with the clinic and for one of its lawyers were not immediately returned.
