HAVANA, December 9, 2002 ( – Cuban pro-life Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet, who served two years of a three-year prison sentence for refusing to perform abortions at the hospital where he worked, and for displaying three Cuban flags upside-down in protest, is now being held again by police after they broke up a human rights meeting.  Biscet was arrested in November 1999, sentenced in 2000 to three years, and released early this October. During his trial, Biscet said his conscience compelled him to protest against abortion. According to Dr. Elias’ wife, Elsa Morejon, he was held with about 12 other people and she has been told nothing of his whereabouts.  For newswire coverage see:   For related coverage see:  CUBAN PRO-LIFE LEADER SUFFERS TORTURES IN COMMUNIST PRISON
