Planned Parenthood prosecution brings legal persecution

A former Kansas attorney general faces yet another hearing in an attempt to disbar him. That effort stems from his attempt to challenge Planned Parenthood while in office.

The attempt to disbar Phill Kline has been ongoing for over seven years now. Dana Cody of Life Legal Defense Foundation tells us the next hearing is this week.

Cody, Dana (LLDF)"The courts in Kansas have been have been prosecuting -- I think a better word is persecuting -- Phill Kline because he attempted to do his job as a prosecutor, which was to prosecute a Planned Parenthood clinic and George Tiller's clinic for not reporting statutory rape and not following the parental notification laws of the state," she explains.

George Tiller was a late-term abortionist in Wichita and the Planned Parenthood is in Kansas City.

Kline, whose law license has been suspended indefinitely, was attorney general when Kathleen Sibelius was governor, who refused to cooperate with him in this case.

"Our now fearless leader of the Department of Health and Human Services at the federal level, Kathleen Sibelius, was involved in all this early on, trying to hide evidence rather than cooperate with then-Attorney General Phill Kline to prosecute," Cody tells OneNewsNow.

Records needed for prosecution supposedly disappeared and, although that has been questioned, charges against the abortion giant were dropped earlier this year.

Cody believes politics were involved. Having seen the legal information against Kline, she finds it unbelievable that he was prosecuted in the first place.
