Kansas AG Seeks late-term abortion records, including sex life history


American Taliban ghoul, Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline, wants to know intimate details of a woman’s sexual history for ‘evidence of crimes’ related to late-term abortion.

Attorney General Phill Kline is seeking the complete medical records of nearly 90 women who received late-term abortions to search for evidence of crimes, according to court documents.

The secret investigation began in October, according to written legal arguments filed Tuesday by two medical clinics that are opposing Kline’s effort. They are asking the Kansas Supreme Court to intercede, saying if it doesn’t, “a woman who exercised her constitutional right to privacy” could find government agents knocking at her door.

Kline, an abortion opponent, scheduled a news conference for Thursday afternoon, and his office said he would discuss “questions raised relating to child rape and abortion in Kansas.” The clinics’ brief said Kline had demanded their complete, unedited medical records for women who sought abortions at least 22 weeks into their pregnancies. Court papers did not identify the clinics.

The records would include the patient’s name, medical history, details of her sex life, birth control practices and psychological profile. The clinics, who say nearly 90 women would be affected, are offering to provide records with some key information, including names, edited out.

“These women’s rights will be sacrificed if this fishing expedition is not halted or narrowed,” the clinics’ brief said.
