Sign the Petition: Urge KS Supreme Court to Send Planned Parenthood To Trial on 107 Criminal Charges

UPDATE: VICTORY! On October 15, 2010, the Kansas Supreme Court issued an order remanding the case back to the Johnson County District court for prosecution. District Attorney Steve Howe will now review the case and decide whether to prosecute, but the former District Attorney, Phill Kline, who filed the charges in 2007 tells Operation Rescue that the case should now proceed. We will be watching and praying.

Thank you to all who participated in this petition. It is because of your willingness to hold the authorities accountable that this case against criminal abortions at Planned Parenthood can now proceed.

The goals of this petition have been successfully fulfilled and the petition is now retired.

Petition to the KANSAS SUPREME COURT in Topeka, Kansas, concerning State of Kansas vs. Comprehensive Health of Planned Parenthood, criminal case number 07CR2701:

We the undersigned are concerned about the health and safety of pregnant women and their pre-born babies and with the proper and timely enforcement of laws enacted by the State of Kansas related to the business and practice of abortion.

We have serious concerns that the excessive delay in moving forward with the prosecution of Criminal Case Number 07CR2701 involving 107 criminal charges related to the commission of unlawful abortions filed in Johnson County, Kansas, on October 17, 2007, against Comprehensive Health of Planned Parenthood has created a situation that has placed at risk the health and safety of women and their viable babies that the laws of Kansas have been enacted to protect.

We are concerned that efforts to begin prosecution of Planned Parenthood actually began in 2004 and, six years later, have yet to be resolved.

We understand that a judge has found probable cause to believe that Planned Parenthood violated the law, precipitating the filing of the 107 count complaint consisting of the following:

• 23 felony counts of Making a False Information
• 26 misdemeanor counts of Unlawful Failure to Maintain Record
• 29 misdemeanor counts of Unlawful Failure to Determine Viability for a Late-Term Abortion
• 29 misdemeanor counts of Unlawful Late-Term Abortion

We are concerned that since the aforementioned charges were filed, the prosecution of this case on behalf of the people of Kansas has been characterized by extraordinary delays that have led to the appearance of impropriety on the part of the Kansas Supreme Court and the Kansas Attorney General’s office under Paul Morrison and Steven Six.

We are further concerned that a long and complex series of legal maneuvers, some kept secret from the public, have resulted in a gag order being placed on critical evidence in this case as well as on the custodian of those records, District Court Judge Richard Anderson by the Kansas Supreme Court at the request of Attorney General Steven Six on April 4, 2008. That order has served only to impede the prosecution of the case and contribute to the appearance of impropriety.

We understand that oral arguments in State of Kansas vs. Comprehensive Health of Planned Parenthood took place before the Kansas Supreme Court on May 13, 2009, at the Kansas Judicial Center in Topeka, Kansas, wherein arguments were made on appeal asking the Court to reinstate the State’s subpoenas for witnesses against Planned Parenthood and for a dissolution of the gag order on evidence and on evidence custodian Judge Richard Anderson.

We are concerned that over nine months later, the Kansas Supreme Court has yet to issue a ruling on that appeal.

We are further concerned that the inexplicable delay by the Kansas Supreme Court to rule has caused an obstruction of the prosecution of 107 serious criminal charges and in so doing has placed the health and safety of women and their viable babies at unnecessary risk of suffering unlawful abortions at the hands of Planned Parenthood.

We understand that there is truth to the adage that “justice delayed is justice denied.”

We are convinced that this case must be allowed to be tried on the facts and with all available evidence and testimony so that public confidence in a fair and impartial judiciary can be restored and that proper justice can be served.

    Send Planned Parenthood to trial on 107 criminal charges.

  • This is a cry for simple justice; woman and babies are at risk from Planned Parenthood. They are not above the law in any state.

    We expect the state of Kansas to abide by the laws of this state and the due process of this free nation. Laws were meant to be honored by all people and government officials are in place to enforce them. Please do not disgrace the positions you hold by not followng the law.

    Aboration kills living children. Anyone who preforms such an act should be tried in court for murdering a child.

  • John Smith

    The voices of over 50 million MURDERED babies since 1973, are crying out for justice! Some of the men and women of the Supreme Court seem to think that they are above reproach. Not only are you accountable to, ” We the People ” More importantly you will be accountable to the one and only Supreme Judge, Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!

    Planned Parenthood is Murder Incorporated. The big difference between it and the “hit” business by that name in the last century is it’s main clients are state and federal governments. The other big difference is Planned Parenthood is racist. It targets Black and Hispanic people. A third big difference is the scale of it’s murder business. Every two months Planned Parenthood’s abortionists kill more of us than were killed in all 16 years of the Vietnam War.

  • Coincidentally, this morning, after receiving email from LifeNews.Com, to which I subscribe. I have written articles on this before, as I have been working with pro-life organizations in Kansas and elsewhere.

    My wife and I personally know Phill Kline, and know him and his family to be deeply sincere Christians. It angers me that he has been persecuted by the pro-abortion news media and the abortion industry and the Kansas Supreme Court.

    Kansas has a corrupt government, which we must change this November. I will do all I can to influence our voters to vote ‘no retention’ on all the Kansas Supremes. Thanks for the help you are providing

  • PS. I included my other website in error.

  • The right to choose includes the right to be fully informed. If one does not know all the facts, one can not make an informed decision. Planned Parenthood tends to hide these facts (viability of fetus’, heartbeat, fetal development, link to breast cancer, heartbreak, overwhelming guilt, free-love and safe-sex etc. etc.) Judges should not be legislating from the bench. You cannot pick and choose which laws you will uphold. Laws were enacted and broken. Now do the right thing – uphold the law and prosecute.

    Abortion clinics are hurting a whole lot more women and killing more humans than ever. They will never be justified in doing so. Yet government bodies are helping them When they break the law because of the money clinics are paying them. Lets just close them up and save these young girls and babies.

  • J. Bondy

    Thou Shall Not Kill. Just which part of that don’t you understand?
    One day you must answer to all your actions and there will be a consequence whether you anticipate it or not. Its the same world only different people.

  • J. Bondy

    PS Abortion Clinics are destroying women’s lives as well as the precious babies lives. Planned Parenthood is strictly a business functioning without telling the women the complete story. So how can the women make a honest choice without having all the facts that it will leave them mentally scarred for life.

  • Ynez Trunzo

    Please inform pregnant women of the life giving options, abortion and killing unborn children is not the answer. Anyone who participates in abortion has evil intent and murder in their heart and should face consequences.

    PERSONHOOD OF THE UNBORN NOW!

    PLANNED MURDERHOOD DEFUNDED AND BROUGHT TO JUSTICE!

  • Jessica

    pp literally sucks the life out of defenseless human beings!!!How this most heinous act against humanity EVER came about, I do not understand. I DO know however, that pp and each and every pro-abort has used deceit to lie to the world esp. poor and vulnerable mostly Black and Hispanic women to ‘think’ that it is about their choice but, they purposely leave out that it is a choice to KILL their own child. We must ALWAYS use the complete term: ‘pro-choice of death,’ so that those who are also making a choice although it is for life, will not propagate the ‘semantics gymnastics’ that the pro-death side is using to manipulate its victims. planneDparEnthoodplAnnedparenTHood…

  • Bob Viser

    ABORTIONS ARE CONSIDERED MURDER IN MOST CASES, AS FAR AS I AM CONCDRNED!

  • Bob Viser

    ABORTIONS, IN MOST CASES-MURDER!

  • ALL ABORTIONIST & THEIR WORKERS SHOULD BE PUT ON TRIAL FOR 1-ST DEGREE MURDER FOR WHAT THEY DO TO WOMEN AND DEFENSELESS BABIES… THE AUTROCITIES THAT THESE “MONSTERS” HAVE COMITTED OVER THE PAST 35-YEARS IS STAGGARING… THEY ARE OF THE MOST PERVERTED… THEY DO NOT DESERVE AN IDENITY… THEY DO NOT HAVE A SOUL-! BEWARE ALL OF YOU IN POLITICAL OFFICES AT EVERY ECHELON OF GOVERNMENT THAT YOU DO NOT FALL IN LEAGUE WITH THE “DAMMED” IN THE WAKE OF GOVERNMENT FUNDED ABORTIONS.

  • Shouldn’t we be as concerned about how these abortion mills are being run as we are when it comes to our hospitals? If this is the case, please explain the difference to me.
    Thank you.

  • Barry Feinman

    It is time for every judge in this case to have no choice but to sit down and watch an actual abortion procedure, namely the video called “Hard Truth” They must be made to understand that a choice can only be made when there are facts from both sides. Women today do not have the facts on the pro-life side. They are lied to and it is time for the hard truth to come forward….after the judges see the video we will see what they do with the real truth.

  • Luis Howard

    We must continue to pray, and pray fervently, to our Holy, Generous God to convert these politicians, and I include the Kansas Supreme Court in that category. Yes, Tiller the baby killer did a great job of buying off these people and the baby killers still at work there picked up his style.
