World — Operation Rescue president Troy Newman believes he has the evidence prosecutors need to investigate a Kansas City abortion center for failure to report child rape, improper disposal of patient records, and other charges. Earlier this month an anonymous source delivered records involving 86 patients, including for four minors, treated in April at Central Family Medicine.
On Wednesday a representative of the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts took possession of the records. Operation Rescue kept copies.
“There is a compelling state interest in reopening the investigation [into the abortion industry that] Phill Kline started,” Newman said.
That won’t be easy. Former Kansas Attorney General Kline opened an investigation into Planned Parenthood and other abortionists for similar offenses in 2003. Nine years later Planned Parenthood has yet to be convicted of a single offense while Kline has been thoroughly vilified in the media and twice tossed from office.
He now waits for the Kansas Supreme Court, which he believes torpedoed his case, to decide whether to suspend his law license following a series of ethics charges (see “Vengeance on the prairie,” May 21, 2011).
Operation Rescue has posted photos of Central Family Medicine records on its website with identifying information blacked out. Because sex with a person under the age of 15 is by definition “child rape” in Kansas, the abortion center by law should be reporting all abortions involving girls that young to state officials so they can determine whether to ignore it as a “Romeo and Juliet” scenario or follow up suspected abuse.
The records include state Supplemental Termination of Pregnancy Report forms that were pre-printed with an “X” in the “No” box for the question of whether the facility reported suspected abuse to the state health agency. The boxes for personal information were blank. This suggests that the facility never intended to report minors or abused women to the state.Continue Reading on www.worldmag.com
