.- Planned Parenthood is facing criminal charges in Kansas for aborting late-term, pre-born babies in violation of state law. 

On Wednesday, Kansas District Attorney Phill Kline filed a 107-count indictment against the abortion provider.  The charges are 23 felony counts of making false information, 26 misdemeanor counts of failure to maintain records, 29 misdemeanor counts of failure to determine viability for a late-term abortion and 29 misdemeanor counts of unlawful late-term abortion.

The felonies carry possible fines of up to $100,000 for each count, and the misdemeanors carry possible fines of up to $2,500 for each count.

Judy Smith, State Director of Concerned Women of America's Kansas branch, 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.”

"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.  "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."

Ms. Wright suggested some of these illegal activities could have been committed with taxpayer support, since Planned Parenthood receives federal funding.  She called on the Department of Health and Human Services to investigate other Planned Parenthood branches across the nation to discover whether they too were involved in illegal activity.
