Kansas Legislators Want Planned Parenthood Prosecuted Not Kline

A press conference was convened at the Topeka Statehouse, Thursday, on behalf of approximately 90 state reps and senators calling for the government to prosecute child rape cover-ups at Planned Parenthood instead of “persecuting” former Attorney General Phill Kline.

Approximately three dozen lawmakers (seen in part, above left) surrounded Rep. Steve Brunk, (R-Bel Aire), their spokesman (seen above right), as he articulated these points:

The recent Kline ethics hearings have again shed a light on the failure of Kansas to meet the state’s obligation to promote justice, which includes protecting children from abuse.

It is past time to stop the personal attack on the former attorney general and begin investigating the horrendous actions of the abortion industry and specifically, Planned Parenthood.

During the 2001-2003 time frame, Kline discovered there were 249 recorded abortions performed on children 14 years of age or under, but only 2 child abuse reports made, one from Planned Parenthood and one from the now-closed clinic of George Tiller.

An unholy alliance existed in this state for 8 years between the former Governor Sebelius’ administration, the abortion industry and the Courts.
Kline has been cleared by the disciplinary administrator’s own investigators, and further, his conduct has been approved by multiple judges.
Ironically, the more the abortion industry and its defenders attempt to persecute Phil Kline for upholding the law, the more evidence comes to light about their own misconduct, which frankly is shrouded in darkness.

As representatives of the people of Kansas, we are here to say “Enough is Enough”.

Our legislature is doing its part to remedy this situation, Brunk said.  The House has passed HB 2035 [the Abortion Reporting Accuracy & Parental Rights Act] which, in part, would require more transparency regarding reporting of underage sex abuse cases by abortion practitioners.

The House also has voted to eliminate Planned Parenthood access to Title X funds, concluded Brunk, and we call on the Kansas Senate to act quickly in also passing both of these important measures.
