: Kansas Supreme Court unseals records that shows probable cause for Planned Parenthood crimes
May 2, 2008 - (Topeka, KS) Today the Kansas (KS) Supreme Court unsealed a lawsuit by Planned Parenthood-Overland Park against District Attorney, Phill Kline, who has charged the abortion facility with violating KS abortion law and creating false documents. Planned Parenthood was seeking to have the KS Supreme Court order Kline to return abortion records that are critical evidence in Kline's prosecution of 107 criminal charges against Planned Parenthood.

The KS Supreme Court rejected a letter from the former KS Attorney General Paul Morrison which exonerated Planned Parenthood from any criminal activity.Morrison actually engaged in acts meant to force the evidence from Kline's possession in order to cover up Planned Parenthood's criminal activity, who had supported his election campaign.
The abortion records, which never included any identifying information of the women obtaining abortions, were subpoenaed by Kline when he was KS Attorney General. When still the Attorney General, Kline received permission from Judge Richard Anderson to forward the records to the Johnson County District Attorney's office, with the court's full knowledge that Kline had been appointed to that post. Planned Parenthood secretly sued Kline to get the records back, a suit that was joined first by Morrison, and then by Attorney General Stephen Six after Morrison's resignation in December of 2007 due to a sex and corruption scandal.
The KS Attorney General's office under Morrison and Six have always said that the abortion records must be returned in order to protect patient privacy. However, all the patient identifying information was taken out long ago. Troy Newman, Operation Rescue, said "One has to wonder about the integrity of the Attorney General's office that continues to promulgate such untrue statements."
Futher, the unsealed records indicate that all of the judges who have viewed the evidence against the Comprehensive Health of Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri have found probable cause that crimes have been committed.
Students for Life of America's Executive Director, Kristan Hawkins, stated, "Today, we have seen a victory because the truth has finally been revealed. The evidence that Kline has in his case against Planned Parenthood needs to see its day in the courtroom. All pro-lifers should be watching this case closely to see how Planned Parenthood has and still is continuing to lie and use dirty money to cover-up for their crimes." She further stated that "This is the first time criminal charges have been brought against Planned Parenthood since Roe v. Wade. Planned Parenthood's federal funding will be at stake if they are convicted of committing multiple crimes. This case could be the one that puts the final nail in Planned Parenthood's coffin."
