He said, she shred: new video details Sebelius’ role in shredding Planned Parenthood evidence
WASHINGTON, December 16, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A new video by the American Life League (ALL) is highlighting the pivotal role of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius as Kansas governor in shredding key evidence against Planned Parenthood, which was facing several felony charges that were dropped as a result of the shredding.
ALL’s Michael Hichborn details former Kansas attorney general Phill Kline’s efforts collecting key evidence against the abortion organization, only to be blocked from the documents after being voted out of office. The new attorney general, Steve Six, in conjunction with the Kansas Department of Health and the Environment, shredded the evidence.
Planned Parenthood had been facing 107 criminal charges, including 23 felonies for falsifying documents. Forty-nine of the charges alleged that the abortion organization had not reported child sexual abuse as required by law.
“The evidence was destroyed at a time the Sebelius administration knew the documents were key to a criminal investigation of Planned Parenthood’s failure to report child rape,” wrote Kline, as noted by Hichborn. “Planned Parenthood is an important and long-term political ally of Sebelius.”
ALL is calling on Sebelius to resign as head of Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services. (Click here to view ALL’s petition.)
“It is absolutely clear that Sebelius must go back to Kansas and must face what is going on there rather than continue in her position of Secretary of Health and Human Services,” said ALL Vice President Jim Sedlak.
