"To be actively pro-life is to contribute to the renewal of society through the promotion of the common good. It is impossible to further the common good without acknowledging and defending the right to life, upon which all the other inalienable rights of individuals are founded and from which they develop." ~ Pope John Paul II, The Gospel of Life, n.101
Everything is grace, everything is the direct effect of our Father's love.Everything is grace because everything is God's gift.Whatever be the character of life or its unexpected events -- to the heart that loves, all is well.

Prosecutor says pregnant 10-year-old failed to trigger assault investigation
Via WorldNet Daily Posted: September 28, 2006 By Bob Unruh My Comments are in blue.
Kansas Attorney General Phil Kline believes that it is his job to see that the laws are followed, but he ran into a brick wall when he concluded the laws that apply to the abortion industry, such as reporting an assault when a 10-year-old has an abortion, ALSO must be upheld.
He soon found out why: hundreds of millions of dollars that American taxpayers each year turn over to Planned Parenthood, a leading provider in the abortion industry.
So now he's working on taking that wall down, one brick at a time. He told WND in an exclusive interview that he's not giving up, and he'll win because the law is on his side.
"We've got them on the hill they will die on," he told WND in an interview. "They are defending abortion clinics as safe havens for child rapists."
When he was elected in 2002, he noticed a peculiarity of laws in most states and jurisdictions. "Nobody has been willing to enforce the abortion laws against Planned Parenthood," he said. And some of the situations just screamed for attention. For example, when there are abortions performed on underage children, by law and by definition there has been a sexual assault on a child.In Kansas a person under 16 legally cannot consent to sex, and abortions cannot be performed past 22 weeks. However, those cases simply weren't being reported, he said.
He started working, watching the situation, developing evidence, and assembling arguments. Soon he found that, just like in many other cases ranging from assault to homicide, he needed the medical records to pursue his investigation.
In court, he sought the redacted clinic records from 90 abortion cases across the state.
It was as if the world fell in and he discovered the reason why the opposition to his work was so fierce.
Under federal rules, the abortion industry leader must follow state laws regarding abortion, notification and other issues if it is to get tax money each year from American citizens – an estimated $227 million this year alone, Kline said.
We are paying for $227 million worth of abortions each year with our tax money! $227 million for abortionists to slaughter babies! This madness has to be stopped.
So any prosecutor who is looking into situations that potentially could have legal implications, such as late-term abortions that don't meet the specified state guidelines, or those abortions administered on underage girls where no assault report is filed,the industry's reaction is going to be serious because of the potential threat to the cash flow.
In Kline's case he was opposed for his views on abortion during his first campaign, attacked when he started his work in office, and still is being attacked as he's seekingre-election in a few weeks.
His opponent is Johnson County District Attorney Paul Morrison, who is trailing Kline by a few points in many polls to date. The matchup has Kline highlighting Morrison's authorship a bill that shortened paroles and released prison inmates early, and citing a Kansas Department of Corrections memo explaining that the bill allowed 800 criminals to be released early and thousands more have their paroles shortened. More than 1,500 have since revisited Kansas' court system, "and those are just the ones we caught," Kline said.
Morrison, meanwhile, portrays Kline as someone who wants to invade women's privacy by seeking medical records from abortionists.
Morrison is a nominal Catholic whose candidacy is financially supported by George Tiller AKA "Tiller the Killer" Wichita's late-term abortionist who earns $15,000 per late-term abortion and is paying Morrison to "look the other way" when it comes to abortion regulations.
Absolutely true that he wanted medical records, Kline told WND. Absolutely false that he was seeking medical records that are identifiable to a particular individual. He said he just wants records that can be inspected to determine whether a "medical provider" at an abortion clinic is, in fact, following the state's various laws, just like many other cases.
He recognizes the reason for the opposition. He noted that Planned Parenthood at one point listed him among the group's "domestic terrorists" list because of his work.
Tiller is the real terrorist in this situation and so are Morrison and Governor Kathleen Sebelius as his cohorts.
"They want my scalp," he told WND. "(They want to say) this used to be an attorney general, so any of you AG's thinking about enforcing the law, this is what will happen to you."
Of course they do! Tiller the Killer is determined to do abortions and make his megabucks and nothing is going to stop him! He must have control. He doesn't care who he hurts to maintain his powerful position. If Kline goes in there and determines that Tiller is protecting child molesters and rapists that will put a real dent in Tiller's plans.
Solution: Get Kline out of office and put your puppet Morrison in! That way you can commit all the crimes you want and protect all the sexual molesters and rapists you care to in order to continue making your megabucks killing babies.
An Ohio woman, Jennifer Jiroux, who works with Citizens for Community Values, told WND the nation needs more prosecutors like Kline. She cited as an example a recent case in which a 12-year-old was taken to an abortion clinic after an assault by a soccer coach, an assault that wasn’t uncovered until some teachers overheard school children teasing the 12-year-old. Where are those individuals who are supposed to report sexual assaults on children? she wondered.
Kline said one other AG, Steve Carter of Indiana, also is filing charges for such cases, and others are watching closely.
How Kline got the steamroller going was simple in Kansas. It's a commonly used procedure in which prosecutors have a proceeding in front of a judge, and the judge reviews evidence and can issue search warrants or compel witnesses to appear.
In the case involving 90 abortions -- for which Kline most commonly is vilified -- he did just that, and the judge, Richard Anderson, found probable cause to suspect that there had been child rape, the failure to report child rape, possible criminal late-term and partial-birth abortions, and other counts.
"I never sought the identity of the women," Kline said. "The judge had agreed to a request to redact their names when the medical records were provided."
One situation involved a 10-year-old who had an abortion. State records confirmed she was nine when she was assaulted. Records also show that in 2003 alone, 78 girls under the age of 15 had abortions in Kansas. By law, that amounts to 78 cases of sexual assault on a child.
Anderson's conclusion to Kline's records request was that, "Without access to the medical records, how is the attorney general going to make a reasonably informed judgment as to whether the records do or do not contain evidence of a crime?" But abortion industry interests then, he said, "came loaded for bear."
That industry, he said, immediately following Anderson's ruling filed a mandamus action with the state Supreme Court, essentially arguing that somebody wasn't doing their constitutional duty.
"The whole thing is private thus far," Kline said. "I don't announce investigations."
However, the clinics made a motion with the court to make the investigation public and asked permission to contact "patients."
"We filed a motion objecting, as harmful to the investigation. Plus when you've got a 10-year-old who had a late-term abortion and nobody called the cops… Who do you think they're going to call (when they call 'patients') but the rapist?"
The Supreme Court granted that motion, and the clinics held a news conference to condemn Kline for seeking "full unredacted medical histories" of 90 adult women and children.
Well of course! There's absolutely nothing wrong with breaking confidentiality when you need a good politician who will look the other way when you're committing a crime in order to stay in business.
"What they were denying us under the law they were giving to PACs," Kline said.
The ultimate result of the appeals process affirmed Kline's request, and there have been a number of convictions as a result. "Now we've had cases referred out on child rape. We've actually had a prosecution and a conviction," Kline said. In one Wichita, Kan., case one defendant pleaded guilty to five counts of raping his stepdaughters.
The case involved four pregnancies and several abortions, but no one had called police, Kline said, until one of the babies was born, and the adoption agency that the family approached "saw through the ruse."
Six different counties in Kansas have been able to prosecute – so far – as a result of Kline's work.
Kline said besides the direct opposition to his efforts, another side is the financial support given to anyone who opposes him. In the last election, a donation of $300,000 was given, reportedly originally from an abortionist, to a PAC just nine days before the election.
This is how Tiller and the abortion industry operate.
Kline said that avoided the state requirement that PAC reports must be filed within 10 days. The money was used for a massive radio campaign criticizing Kline, he said.
Flip Benham, of Operation Save America, noted that Kansas' most famous abortionist, George Tiller of Wichita is famous for his late-term abortion services, and he compared Tiller to another Wichita man, Dennis Rader.
Excellent Comparison -- Only Tiller has killed many more human beings than the BTK and he gets paid for it. He also gets off scott-free!
Rader was convicted of being the BTK (bind, torture, kill) killer who was arrested years after he killed a number of people.
Benham said neither respects any life but their own, and they both like to operate behind walls of secrecy. He also noted both are members in good standing in their respective churches.
"Unfortunately for the citizens in the city of Wichita and all of us in America, both men are inhabited by the same spirit of murder. This spirit, once unleashed … knows no bounds and only increases in ferocity," Benham wrote.
One supporter of the organization noted that Kansas current governor, Kathleen Sebelius, "is pro abortion to the max and has done everything she can, including stripping funds from the A.G. office to a minimum, to deem him ineffective."
Oh, yeah - Another nominal Catholic who receives money from Tiller to support his "habit" of murdering babies and destroying women's lives. The clinics denied any wrongdoing. Typical
"Our clients have followed the law and will continue to do so," lawyer Lee Thompson wrote.
Kline also has sued officials in his own state – at the direction of the state Legislature – to stop state funding of abortions. Elmer Feldkamp of Baileyville, president of Right to Life of Kansas, said it is an attempt to substantiate that human life begins at conception.
But abortion promoters even were critical of Kline's decision to follow the orders from the state House.
"He continues to use his office to push extreme ideologies on the state of Kansas," Traci Gleason, spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of Kansas, said at the time.
I think she meant to say "Tiller uses his office to push extreme ideologies on the state of Kansas."
Great post, Bob! It's about time someone wrote the truth about Phil Kline. I am tired of reading all the deception that is depicted in the Wichita Eagle about our Attorney General, who is one of the most honest and moral people in this state. I am sick and tired of these nominal Catholics who pretend they are upstanding and moral Catholics and claim they are "personally pro-life" with strong family values when they are simply out to support abortion at all costs -- even at the cost of their very souls. That is something that Phil Kline does not do. He is someone who cares about the victims of sexual assault, someone who wants to identify the criminal and prosecute him. After all that's what an Attorney General does.
