WASHINGTON, October 17, 2007 ( – Planned Parenthood faces criminal charges for aborting late-term, pre-born babies in violation of Kansas state law. Today, Kansas District Attorney Phill Kline filed a 107-count indictment against the abortion group. District Court Judge James Vano found probable cause. The charges are as follows:

  23 felony counts of making a false writing, 29 misdemeanor counts of performing unlawful late term abortions, 27 misdemeanor counts of failure to maintain records, 29 misdemeanor counts of failure to determine viability

“Planned Parenthood is accused of falsifying records to cover up numerous violations of state law against aborting late-term babies,” said Wendy Wright, President of Concerned Women for America (CWA).  “Now we know what Planned Parenthood means by ‘privacy’ when it refuses to release information on the abortions it commits on pre-born babies – it is claiming privacy on its own alleged illegal actions.”

“Planned Parenthoods around the country receive federal funding, so our tax dollars may be subsidizing this alleged illegal activity. The Department of Health and Human Services should begin an immediate investigation to discover whether other Planned Parenthoods around the country engage in the same type of potentially illegal activities, violating state and federal law.”

  Judy Smith, State Director of CWA of Kansas said, “We believe that the allegations brought against Planned Parenthood of Overland Park need to be investigated. The people have a right to expect that the laws enacted by their representatives are followed to the letter. As a women’s organization, we want to ensure that every woman receives the legally approved medical standard of care on any procedure, including abortion.  If this is not happening at Planned Parenthood clinics, women should be able to rely on the law to protect them.”
