Operation Rescue names Kline its 'Man of the Year'
Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. - Voters in Kansas rejected Attorney General Phill Kline, but the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue is naming him its "Man of the Year."

Kline, a vocal and longtime opponent of abortion, waged a two-year legal battle to obtain the records of 90 patients from two abortion clinics. Kline has said he is investigating potential crimes that include illegal late-term abortions.

Operation Rescue said it would have been "politically expedient" for Kline to drop his investigation. Kline's pursuit of the records became a political liability, with his critics - and some voters - seeing it as a potential invasion of privacy.

The group is also honoring Leslie Unruh as its "Woman of the Year." She founded a Sioux Falls, S.D., group that counsels women considering abortions and those who have had them. Operation Rescue described her as instrumental in persuading her state's legislators to pass a law banning most abortions, which was later repealed by voters.
