GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) - Police say a man was stabbed Tuesday during a violent confrontation with an abortion protester outside a Planned Parenthood health center in Grants Pass.

Officials said Ted Clair was stabbed seven times in the abdomen and neck during a fight with Christopher Tolhurst, who had signs denouncing abortion and Planned Parenthood.

Witnesses said that earlier in the day, Clair's 22-year-old daughter, Kailah Clair, argued with Tolhurst and kicked over his protest signs.

She returned later with her father, who confronted Tolhurst.

Witnesses reported Ted Clair pushed Tolhurst to the ground and punched him and then Tolhurst stabbed Clair.

Grants Pass police said no arrests have been made.

Ted Clair was hospitalized with serious injuries.  Tolhurst was treated for facial swelling and bruising. Kailah Clair was treated for hand cuts and an arm bruise.
