The pre-trial hearing for the felony prosecution of Planned Parenthood of Mid-Missouri Kansas has been delayed til Nov. 9  because 23 Planned Parenthood-specific state abortion reports have been discovered as destroyed.

Judge Stephen Tatum granted the continuance due to the state’s plea that only recently had they learned that crucial evidence for proving a forgery —original copies of those state late-term abortion compliance reports from Planned Parenthoodhad been destroyed in 2005 by the state of Kansas Health department (KDHE) under Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.

Despite requests, the KDHE has not yet issued a public comment on this bombshell that it had actually destroyed selective documents.

Back in 2005, Sebelius was losing her fight to keep various subpoenaed state information relevant to illegal post–viability abortions away from then-Attorney General Phill Kline.  Kline had attained what’s called “probable cause” that crimes had been committed and was seeking patient files.  But he had also seen copies of these state compliance reports which bore no patient names but were important because they had been filed with bogus language where legitimate medical reasons were supposed to have been supplied.

Political machinations swallowed those anticipated big-gun prosecutions.  Kline lost his 2006 re-election campaign, but became the District attorney for Johnson County, the home of the Kansas Planned Parenthood abortion facility.   He lodged 107 criminal charges against Planned Parenthood in October 2007, including 23 felony counts for allegedly forging copies of the 2003 state reports in August 2006.

The case was repeatedly stalled when KDHE steadfastly refused to bring the original reports to court in 2008 and never gave a hint that the 23 reports had already been destroyed 3 years earlier! (more…)

Tacha, Six's mentor, promises he'll behave

The Democrat-controlled Senate Judiciary committee once again deferred a vote on the court of appeals nomination of Steve Six.

This is great news for pro-lifers in the 10th circuit states of Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming, and dismal news for the abortion interests suing new pro-life laws in those states, which—on appeal—could go to the very court Six wants to join.

The delayed vote came despite a letter campaign of support from deans of his alma mater law school, past Kansas AG Bob Stephan and 29 Attorneys General.

But it was the letter from the retired judge, Deanell Tacha, whom Six wants to replace, and for whom he clerked in 1993-94, that was the most telling:  Tacha seemed to promise that his protection of abortion interests under Gov. Sebelius was over!  Tacha’s letter was quoted by the Associated Press and LJWorld as saying:

“Six had to make difficult decisions as attorney general and as an appellate judge he wouldn’t be required to factor in policy calls that are required in the executive branch.”

“Instead, I know from working (more…)
