Update 2:50 p.m.: Kline cast as a 'zealot'
Source: The Topeka Capital-Journal

<snip>Planned Parenthood President Peter Brownlie today said the Kansas Supreme Court's ruling on abortion records held by Johnson County prosecutor Phill Kline affirmed an image of Kline as a "political zealot" on an anti-abortion crusade.

The Supreme Court issued a written opinion instructing Kline, who was attorney general until 2007, to return the full set of patient medical records tied to the ongoing prosecution of the Overland Park abortion clinic.

Attorneys for Planned Parenthood had asked the Supreme Court to intervene, alleging Kline was acting improperly in advancing criminal charges against the clinic.

We are very pleased by the courts decision, said Brownlie, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood. The court confirms what Planned Parenthood has said all along: Phill Kline is a zealot pursuing a lawless prosecution and misusing the peoples trust to advance a radical anti-choice political agenda."

Hopefully this means that the witch hunt is over. Kline has been focused on harrassing abortion providers in KS as a personal mission. He uses the unfounded claim that PP is "protecting child molesters" by not reporting pregnancies in teens so that he could "prosecute for statutory rape" - and demanded all records of late term abortions (including adult women - ??), and reported sexual histories of those patients....

He never went after "crisis pregnancy centers" or Obstetricians for their records, showing his purpose was only to target abortion providers.
