May 21, 2012/Topeka, KS/Operation Rescue --
Just four days after former Kansas prosecutor Phill Kline filed a motion asking for the recusal of two biased State Supreme Court Justices who were slated to decide the outcome of a politically motivated ethics complaint against him, five out of seven of the Justices recused themselves from hearing the case.
The unprecedented move opens the door for Kline to have a new panel of judges look at an ethics complaint filed by an attorney for a late-term abortionist who was trying to prevent Kline from obtaining abortion records that we now know contained evidence that abortion clinics were breaking the law. Until now, only those with a political vendetta against Kline and his controversial abortion clinic investigations have heard the case. Recusing were Justices Carol Beier, Lawton Nuss, who were included in Kline's motion, and Lee Johnson, Marla Luckert and Eric Rosen.
This case has a long and complex history. It began in 2003 when, as Attorney General, Kline had reason to believe that child sex abuse was not being reported by abortion clinics as required by law. Kline opened an investigation and obtained a subpoena from Judge Richard Anderson for abortion records. Anderson found there was probable cause for Kline to obtain the records.
Kline was the lone Republican to hold a statewide office at a time when Kansas politics was dominated by former Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, who now serves as Secretary of Health and Human Services in the Obama Administration. Sebelius is and was a radical supporter of unrestricted abortion. Through her appointments, she created a political climate that protected abortion clinics at all costs.
Kline had good reason to be concerned that the abuse of young girls was not being reported by abortion clinics, but his efforts to investigate those suspected crimes were met with fierce legal opposition and public demonization by abortion clinic attorneys, the Kansas media, and especially Supreme Court Justice Carol Beier.
