Kansas Suspends Phill Kline’s License for Investigating Planned Parenthood

In a detailed 154-page decision, the Kansas Supreme Court has indefinitely suspended the law license of former state Attorney General Phill Kline for 11 ethics violations related to his investigation of abortion clinic from 2003-2008.
“The Sebelius-Era vendetta against Kline for daring to uphold Kansas abortion and child sex abuse laws has finally extracted its pound of flesh,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Contrary to the Court’s ruling, we know Kline to be a selfless man who has dedicated his life in the pursuit of justice. Sometimes, that honesty and integrity comes at a price, and Kline has certainly paid a heavy penalty for standing up to a corrupt administration that went to great lengths to insulate Kansas abortionists from being brought to justice.”
“The violations we have found are significant and numerous, and Kline’s inability or refusal to acknowledge or address their significance is particularly troubling in light of his service as the chief prosecuting attorney for this State and its most populous county,” the Court stated.
“If a man believes himself to be innocent and has evidence he believes proves his innocence, as was the case with Kline, it seems shocking that the Court would attack him simply for maintaining his rights to a defense,” said Newman. “This case has always been about teaching a lesson to Kline and other prosecutors who might entertain the possibility of trying to enforce the law against abortion providers. It is meant to have a chilling effect on law enforcement everywhere. Now we can expect that women will be further endangered by criminal abortionists while intimidated prosecutors look the other way in order to protect their own political careers. This is disgraceful and the Supreme Court and Disciplinary Administrator who prosecuted Kline should be ashamed today.”
