Imagine a multi-billion empire with the proven ability to flout the law wherever it operates. Imagine a conglomerate with demonstrable influence and even protection from judges, attorneys, government agencies â€“ and especially the media. You might think it impossible that such a corporation could operate in modern America. Youâ€™d be quite mistaken.
Planned Parenthood holds a unique and privileged position in American society. It not only operates above the law â€“ it does so with financing from taxpayers.
One would be tempted to accuse Planned Parenthood of gross arrogance; in fact, we have done so often in this very column. But deeper reflection suggests that may not be an accurate adjective. After all, arrogance implies an inflated, unrealistic view of the world, and one’s place in it. Sadly, Planned Parenthood is all too justified in its belief that it is required to operate only by the rules it creates for itself.
Take, for example, the supposedly straight-forward question of child sex abuse.
Every state has some sort of law requiring professionals to report suspected cases of sexual abuse to law enforcement. But Planned Parenthood, despite its frequent contact with pregnant, underage girls is unofficially exempt from those laws. In some jurisdictions â€“ they have been granted formal exemptions by ding-dong judges or corrupted Attorneys General who share their value system.
We go through this long lead-in to put new developments in Kansas into perspective.
Prosecuting Attorney Phill Kline has just filed 107 criminal charges against Planned Parenthood of Kansas; 23 of which are felony charges involving performance of illegal abortions.
Imagine the shock rippling through Planned Parenthoodâ€™s entire corporate structure!
This development is the latest in what can be called â€œThe Great Kansas Abortion Warsâ€.
Kline has spent much of the past few years working to hold the Abortion Industry in this state accountable to the law. While Attorney General, he scrutinized the evil deeds of Americaâ€™s most notorious abortionist, George Tiller. Klineâ€™s work laid the groundwork for the 30 criminal counts now pending in that state against Tiller. Klineâ€™s investigation also prepared the way for the pending Grand Jury hearings, scheduled for October 30th, regarding Tillerâ€™s late-term abortion facility.
Never before have Planned Parenthood and their comrades been held to account. Phill Kline is indeed a national hero. We appeal to pro-Lifers across the country for prayers on his behalf as he, rather unbelievably, seeks to fulfill his oath of office.
