I’ve written many times about the predators of Planned Parenthood. The latest effort to hold the abortion racket accountable comes from Kansas. There, Johnson County DA Phill Kline filed a 107-count criminal complaint last week against a Planned Parenthood operation. The counts range from falsifying documents to performing illegal late-term abortions. Planned Parenthood, of course, is crying “anti-choice politics!”
A hearing is set for Nov. 16.
Kline while serving as state attorney general in 2004 subpoenaed the records of 90 women and girls who in 2003 underwent late-term abortions at Comprehensive Health or Women’s Health Care Services in Wichita, Kan., saying there is probable cause that each record contains evidence of a felony. The state Supreme Court in February 2006 ruled that Kline could seek access to the records but that he must return to Shawnee County District Court Judge Richard Anderson and present his reasons for seeking the subpoenas. Anderson turned over the records to Kline’s office in November 2006 after removing information that would identify individuals.
State Attorney General Paul Morrison (D) — who defeated Kline in the November 2006 election — in June in a letter to PPKM attorney Pedro Irigonegaray wrote that he has ended the investigation of Comprehensive Health. Morrison added that the attorney general’s office “found no evidence of any criminal wrongdoing” by the clinic. Morrison in the letter also said that Kline forwarded copies of the medical records from PPKM patients to the Johnson County district attorney’s office on Jan. 5 — three days before he left the state attorney general’s office. Kline retains copies of the records, according to Morrison’s letter (Kaiser Daily Women’s Health Policy Report, 7/23). Johnson County District Court Judge Stephen Tatum on Wednesday after Kline’s complaint was filed found probable cause for the charges and set a court date for Nov. 16, the Kansas City Star reports (Bauer et al., Kansas City Star, 10/17).
There is now also a petition drive seeking a grand jury investigation of PP’s activities.
The abortion racket and ABC News are very, very worried.
