Breaking: Sebelius administration destroyed key evidence in Kansas Planned Parenthood case

The Planned Parenthood abortion clinic of Overland Park, KS, is currently on trial for 107 counts of falsifying abortion records and committing illegal late-term abortions, 23 of which are felonies.

The charges were brought by former Attorney General Phill Kline in October 2007 following an investigation he launched in 2003.

Today came the bombshell news that the administration of former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, now the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, destroyed critical evidence in 2005. The evidence was needed to compare records Kline acquired with records Planned Parenthood later submitted.

From the Kansas City Star:

Key evidence needed to prosecute Planned Parenthood for allegedly falsifying abortion documents has been destroyed by the state, court records show.

Prosecutors have asked a judge to delay a Monday hearing to determine whether there’s enough evidence to try the abortion provider on 23 felony counts of falsifying termination of pregnancy reports.

Prosecutors say the records kept by the state needed to make their case were destroyed in 2005, some two years before criminal charges were brought against Planned Parenthood.

Court records say that Kansas health officials shredded the documents as part of a “routine document destruction.”

It’s impossible to know precisely when it occurred although it is believed to have been done in 2005, when the health department was part of the administration of former Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, an abortion rights supporter….

Abortion opponents were so incredulous about the revelation that they hard to time finding words to describe their reaction.

“Unbelievable,” said Mary Kay Cup [sic], executive director of Kansans for Life. “We don’t believe for one second this was anything but purposefully done to protect the abortion industry.”

The destroyed records were critical in establishing the authenticity of records from 2003 obtained by Kline when he investigated the agency as attorney general. Planned Parenthood later provided copies of the documents that the state contended did not match those Kline had.

Later, as Johnson County district attorney in 2007, Kline filed the 107-count complaint against the agency.

Kline argued at the time that the group had performed illegal late-term abortions and falsified or forged documents to make it appear they were legal.

Prosecutors contended that Planned Parenthood had not kept the documents five years as required by law and falsified copies to cover it up.

Kline subpoenaed the documents in question in the fall of 2004. So their destruction the following year doesn’t look on the up and up, to say the least.

It now becomes more clear why the Kansas Department of Health and Environment strangely but strongly resisted turning over those documents to Kline and also refused to certify the documents Kline had.

Furthermore, Kline’s decision not to inform the Sebelius administration about his investigation appears vindicated. His rationale was that it was Sebelius cronies he was investigating.

That decision was one of the reasons a Sebelius-empowered panel suspended Kline last week.

Pro-life billboard towers over Planned Parenthood – for one day

Jackson Right to Life, in Michigan, followed all the rules when renting billboard space next to the Jackson Planned Parenthood.

For one glorious day a pro-life billboard towered over Planned Parenthood’s pathetic little abortion feeder with the simple but powerful message, “Choose Life = No Regrets.”

There was only one problem: The billboard was on Planned Parenthood’s property. Adams Outdoor Advertising had leased the billboard space but forgotten about Planned Parenthood’s addendum forbidding any pro-life messaging.

Click "like" if you are PRO-LIFE!

So just as quickly as the billboard went up, on June 9, it came down the next day. Adams is offering Jackson RTL other locations, and on the advice of attorneys Jackson RTL is accepting Adams’ offer and moving on.

But the snafu was all worth it for the amazing photo op, eh?

Planned Parenthood CEO’s annual salary now exceeds $500,000

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards 2012-13 salary now exceeds $500k
According to Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s 2012 IRS Form 990, CEO Cecile Richards made over one-half million dollars – $523,616, to be exact – for the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013.

That’s a lot of money to pay the CEO of a nonprofit organization, particularly one that claims to cater to low-income women.

“Planned Parenthood works to make health care accessible and affordable,” boasts Planned Parenthood

Really? How much more affordable would Planned Parenthood’s services be were not its corporate bosses and affiliate CEOs making big bucks? For that 2012 reporting period, PPFA’s 12-member executive team tallied a combined income of $3.87 million.

When questioned by The Daily Caller in October 2012 about what was thought at the time to be an “almost $400,000 salary,” Richards responded, “None of my salary is paid for by the federal government.” 

But if “[n]early half of Planned Parenthood patients rely on Medicaid coverage,” as Planned Parenthood states, does Richards really think she’d be making the same coin were government funding – to the tune of $540.6 million in FY 2012-13 – removed from Planned Parenthood’s total revenue of $1.210 billion?

And actually, The Daily Caller was well over $100,000 off on Richards’ salary.

Turns out Richards made $583,323 during Fiscal Year 2011 (July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012). This represented a whopping 39% pay increase from the year before that, when she “only” made $420,153.

Cecile Richards campaigns Barack ObamaSo, actually, Richards’ 2012 salary of $523,616 represented a 10% pay cut.

But this was because she took time off from Planned Parenthood to campaign for President Obama’s reelection – which paid off for Planned Parenthood handsomely via windfall income via Obamacare and other government funding streams, only kept flowing by Obama and other pro-abortion politicians.

This sort of financial cushion then frees up Planned Parenthood to raise and spend money to elect pro-abortion candidates, who then return the favor.

See how the circle of loot works?

And where are the liberals – the Occupy Wall Street types – who supposedly despise such top-heavy income? They oppose Big Oil, Big Pharma, and Big Finance. But Big Abortion? Not on your life, or rather, not on the lives of innocent little babies.

South by Southwest: Pro-life laws eradicating abortion clinics

There is a mesmerizing time-lapse video at the Abraham Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Illinois, that in four minutes shows the North’s four-year takeover of the South during the Civil War (screen shots above – view a video clip here).

I was reminded of that video when viewing this GIF from Planned Parenthood. Click on the image to launch…

Planned Parenthood 5-1-14-Abortion-Disappearing-In-South-Map

The correlation between slavery and abortion makes it poignant that legal abortion is first being wiped out in the South, although the area also encompasses some of the Southwest, including Texas and Oklahoma….

Headlines: Abortion disappearing in the South

While many different types of pro-life laws are being enacted, such as late-term abortion bans, waiting periods, ultrasound requirements, and parental involvement, those having the greatest impact are what the abortion industry calls “Targeted Regulation of Abortion Provider (TRAP) laws” – abortion clinic regulations and requirements that abortionists have hospital admitting privileges.

The sudden proliferation of “TRAP” laws most certainly can be tied to the discovery in 2010 of late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s House of Horrors and Gosnell’s subsequent conviction in 2013 of first degree murder in the deaths of three abortion surviving infants and involuntary manslaughter of a patient.

Whether the Gosnell case emboldened pro-life politicians, or frightened them into trying to avert the discovery of another Gosnell in their state, it doesn’t matter.

The result is both a physical and political win, physical in that these laws save the lives of children and mothers, and political in that they expose the abortion industry as medically substandard.

The Associated Press describes the toll on the abortion industry in the South/Southwest:

The [admitting privileges] requirements are already in effect in Texas and Tennessee….

If the law there is upheld, Mississippi’s lone abortion clinic would have to close….

After judges allowed Texas’ privileges law to take effect earlier this year, 19 of 33 abortion clinics closed….

In Alabama, operators of three of five abortion clinics testified last week during a trial challenging the law that they use out-of-town doctors who wouldn’t be able to admit patients to local hospitals. They said they’d have to close….

In Louisiana, opponents said the Louisiana law would close three of the state’s five abortion clinics….

Of course, states in many other areas of the country are enacting pro-life legislation, but there is a concentration in the South/Southwest that “could see an entire region of the nation with little or no access to safe abortion,” warns Planned Parenthood.

Legal sure, but “safe,” no. At least one woman a month dies from a legal abortion in the U.S.
