In 2002, a Life Dynamics undercover sting produced irrefutable evidence that the American abortion industry is operating a nationwide pedophile protection ring (see: ChildPredators.com).
When this information was made public, the Attorney General of Kansas, Phill Kline, became the first attorney general in the nation with the courage to launch an investigation. Although the abortion lobby carried out a vicious and deceptive campaign to derail Kline's investigation, at a December 22 news conference, lawyers for notorious Kansas abortionist, George Tiller, announced that Kline had filed 30 criminal charges against Tiller, most of which relate to abortions he performed on underage children.
These indictments were based on records subpoenaed from Tiller and show that the overwhelming majority of the abortions were performed on patients who were between 25 and 28 weeks pregnant. However, two of the charges involve patients who were 31 weeks pregnant at the time of their procedures. In what is probably the most troubling incident, Count Three of the indictment is based on an abortion Tiller performed in July of 2003 on a 10-year-old girl who was 28 weeks pregnant.
In addition, not one of the records indicated any physical health problems with either the mom or the baby. In every case, the justification given for killing the baby was either “stress” or “depression.” In short, according to Tiller’s own files, these were purely elective third-trimester abortions performed on healthy moms to destroy healthy babies. And in most cases they were performed on minor children.
When the story about these criminal charges broke, the Kansas abortion lobby immediately began to circle the wagons. Within a few hours, the District Attorney of Sedgewick County, Nola Foulston, filed a motion to have the charges dismissed claiming that she had not been consulted about them before they were filed, as required by Kansas law. For the record, Foulston is well-known in Kansas as an outspoken proponent of legalized abortion and a personal friend of Tiller.
Contrary to Foulston's story, Kline says that he did meet with her in her Wichita office prior to filing the charges and that there were three witnesses to the meeting. He also says that Foulston told him that she had no problem with the charges.
Obviously, somebody is lying. In order to buy Foulston’s version, you have to first believe that it was just some sort of cosmic coincidence that within minutes after this phantom meeting ended, Foulston filed a motion to dismiss the charges in the court of Democrat Judge Paul W. Clark.
The only logical conclusion is that the meeting did take place and that Foulston lied to Kline to keep him from knowing beforehand that she intended to file this motion. She had to know that if Kline was given a chance to fight her motion, he would prevail. Given that, it is no great leap in logic to speculate that she hand-picked a judge she knew would let her keep Kline in the dark until the hearing was over, thereby preventing him from being present and defending his position.
Of course, the best evidence that this was the plan is the fact that, in the end, it is precisely what happened. In a hastily convened legal proceeding in which one of the primary parties was excluded, Clark approved Foulston’s motion and dismissed the charges. For those who may be tempted to challenge the assertion that Clark was hand-picked for this job, it should be noted that the Sedgewick County website lists Clark as a traffic court judge. The fact is, the fix was in and Clark was going to show Foulston and the rest of the Kansas abortion mafia that he was a company man.
Kline’s reaction to this scam was to demand that another hearing be held. The good news was that his request was granted. The bad news was that this new hearing was directed right back into Clark’s traffic court.
When the lawyer representing the Attorney General’s office finished his argument, Clark immediately reissued his initial ruling which he read from a prepared written text. In other words, he walked into the courtroom with his ruling already made. Listening to Kline’s legal argument was nothing more than a politically-necessary formality. It was not going to change anything.
In the days after this sleazy stunt was pulled, legal scholars appearing on national television pointed out that the Kansas law in question clearly shows that Kline has the legal right to bring such charges, despite the claims of Foulston and Clark. These experts had also read the charges Kline brought against Tiller and found that they were correctly filled and fully supported by evidence subpoenaed from Tiller himself. One even went so far as to indicate that he was totally bewildered how Clark could come to his ruling since the law was so clear and unambiguous.
Looking back, it is now clear that Foulston’s and Clark’s actions were nothing more than a stall. They were aware that Kline had lost his bid for re-election and that his successor, Paul Morrison, is a raging pro-abort whose campaign took hundreds-of-thousands of dollars from Tiller. So their strategy was to use this phony legal maneuver to keep Kline at bay until his term ran out. Even if some higher court were to rule that Foulston’s motion was groundless and Clark’s ruling improper, it wouldn’t matter as long as the ruling came after January 8, 2007 – the day Kline has to turn over the attorney general’s office to Tiller’s buddy.
Kline’s reaction was to appoint a special prosecutor, attorney Don McKinney, who can continue the effort to hold George Tiller accountable even after Kline leaves office. The only question is whether he will be given the chance to do so. It is entirely conceivable – perhaps even likely – that the new pro-abortion attorney general will fire McKinney as a political payoff to Tiller.
In the final analysis, this sorry episode is just more proof that the abortion mafia – which in this case includes a godless and corrupt district attorney – is always prepared to lie, cheat, steal, and wallow in even the filthiest cesspool in order to keep America’s death camps churning out victims.
But whatever happens, the good news is that this opera ain’t over. The evidence against Tiller is building and the day is rapidly approaching when even his most loyal media and political flunkeys will be unable to cover his tracks. Whether or not Attorney General Kline is successful in getting the charges reinstated before he leaves office, and whether or not the special prosecutor is fired by his pro-abortion successor, the abortion lobby’s frantic and desperate response to this situation shows that Tiller is surviving on little more than sips of hope.
So stay tuned. The fat lady is warming up.
