.- Concerned Women for America (CWA) applauds Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline for seeking to defend victims of child rape. In an effort to do so, Kline has requested abortion clinic records to determine potential victims. However, abortionists are fighting Kline on this request, arguing on the right to privacy.
"Attorney General Kline's request for the records is a bold attempt to prosecute sexual predators of minor girls," said Wendy Wright, CWA's senior policy director. "Sexual predators who force girls to undergo abortions in order to cover up the evidence of their criminal activity too often evade the law, thanks to abortion clinics that are disguising criminal activity as a privacy issue.
âIt is not unheard of for medical records to be attained in criminal investigations. It happens with Medicaid fraud," she pointed out.
According to Kansas public documents, 78 Kansas children were reported as victims of some form of sexual abuse in 2003.
"All health and service entities that come in contact with potential abuse of minors, sexual or physical, are required to report such abuse to investigating agencies; this is for the protection of those who cannot protect themselves and to expose those who prey upon them," said Judy Smith, CWA of Kansas state director, who leads the 5,540-member state organization.
