D.A. Steve Howe- case hurt with evidence destruction by former AG office & KDHE

District Judge Steve Tatum today dismissed 23 felony charges and 26 related misdemeanor charges against Planned Parenthood because the original paperwork critical to proving the charges was destroyed by state officials in 2005 and 2009.

58 misdemeanor charges for illegal late-term abortions remain to be prosecuted, and the next hearing is scheduled for Feb. 22.

UPDATE: AG Schmidt reveals investigation into evidence destruction under AG Six

Kansans for Life Executive Director, Mary Kay Culp, attended today’s hearing and said that Planned Parenthood’s attorney again went on a diatribe against Phill Kline and how the case had always been without merit. Culp commented:

“Despite Planned Parenthood’s pathetic efforts to once again use Phill Kline as a distraction, the facts are that two judges found probable cause to believe Planned Parenthood committed felonies, and the only reason it can’t be proved is selective and purposeful destruction of evidence at what may have been the very highest level of Kansas government.

At least four things need to happen:

  • a full scale investigation by current AG Schmidt of the destruction of evidence,
  • possible ethics charges against former AG Steve Six and co-conspirators,
  • a vigorous prosecution of Planned Parenthood by D.A. Howe for the remaining charges of illegal late-term abortions, and
  • a full review of this case in its entirety by the Kansas Legislature.”

The paperwork in question are the ‘Induced Termination of Pregnancy’ compliance forms (called ITOPs) submitted (more…)

Planned Parenthood of Kansas Mid-Missouri is one step closer to trial, and they can no longer rely on patient privacy stalling tactics, or an abortion-protecting AG, to buy them more time.  A four-day pre-trial hearing is set for Oct. 24 to tackle 23 criminal charges that PP falsified patient records.

In court Friday, Judge Tatum failed to grant special arrangements (for factually insupportable threats to patient privacy) that Planned Parenthood had petitioned for in April (see here), as the prosecutors assured the court that all records are “under lock and key”.

Current Johnson County District Attorney, Steve Howe, and assistant Chris McMullin– both seasoned prosecutors–rejected Planned Parenthood’s demands as unreasonable and quite insulting:

“The Office of District Attorney for the Tenth Judicial District has vast experience in presenting evidence of a sensitive nature in open Court…For instance, this office routinely prosecutes sexual assault cases. Victim records, including colposcope photographs of genitals, are presented in court, in a discrete manner. Pornography depicting minors is routinely presented in court. Are these items any less deserving of privacy and respect? The litigants have clear direction from this State’s highest Court regarding the handling of the patient records, and these directions will be followed. There is no need for expensive, complicated additional procedures to correct a problem that does not exist.”

The prosecutor’s written, filed response (here) also berated Planned Parenthood for trying to “insinuate itself into the process of a lawful subpoena of government records” and for incorrectly “lumping together” patient medical records with limited-information statistical reports as if both need the same types of protective handling.

This intentional mischief of mischaracterizing types of evidence, and the personal information contained (and not contained) within, has served Planned Parenthood well in confusing the media, and the public, in these criminal proceedings, as well as in the 2007/2008 citizen-petitioned grand jury against Planned Parenthood.

Former Gov. Sebelius & Six

What would you offer– if you were a powerful personto induce a lawyer to bail you out of trouble?  Maybe that you’d get him/her on the federal bench?  Kathleen Sebelius had that political need, and has the power to deliver such an ‘abortion payback’ under Pres. Obama…for Steve Six.

Both Kansas Senators must refuse confirmation of Steve Six as suitable to be a federal judge.

Six has not demonstrated any notable record of accomplishment during his Sebelius-appointments.  Rather he has shown himself to be partisan and pro-abortion.  He was willing to interrupt his comfortable law practice and this judicial nomination is his reward for jumping to help Sebelius and the abortion industry.

In December 2007, Gov. Sebelius needed to quickly replace her sex-scandalized Attorney General, Paul Morrison.  Two years earlier, (more…)

The newest ruling of the Kansas Supreme Court, written by Justice Carol Beier, validates our Kansans For Life-Political Action Committee’s ‘Fire Beier’ initiative and our opposition to re-electing Steve Six as Attorney General.

Efforts to prosecute abortion crimes in Kansas (begun when Phill Kline was AG) have been held hostage for seven years by the state Supreme Court.  Periodically the Court has freed the litigation, but only after hog-tying it with special instructions, accompanied by long  anti-Kline diatribes by Justice Carol Beier.

This was the case Friday, with the Court’s long-overdue release of the 107-count criminal case against Planned Parenthood, sending it back to court in Johnson County, Kansas.

The abortion industry has no better ally than Justice Beier, who penned all three rulings (2006, 2008, 2010) in lawsuits that Planned Parenthood had filed to insure that abortion (more…)
