This anti-abortion attorney general has quite the interest in underage sex.
He’s basically asking for the medical records of “scores” of women who’ve had abortions. These records will contain information about these women’s sex lives, presumably information that they weren’t looking to give to a state prosecutor.
Why does he want these records? Because if any of these abortions were performed on pre-teen girls, then that means those girls were raped, and then he can go prosecute the rapists. Why he needs to see all these medical records instead of just the ones that might fit this rape profile is anyone’s guess.
I did have to smirk at this part of the article:
“When a 10-, 11- or 12-year-old child is pregnant, under Kansas law that child has been raped, and as the state’s chief law enforcement official it is my obligation to investigate child rape in order to protect Kansas children,” [prosecutor] Kline said. “There are two things that child predators want, access to children and secrecy…
He declined to answer questions about his investigation.
Yeah, I know, cheap shot.
But this next part is creepy too:
Mr. Kline’s efforts to obtain records from abortion clinics follows his failed attempt last year to require the state’s health workers to report any sexual activity of girls younger than 16, the age of legal consent in Kansas.
So fear not, young Kansan girls! Phill Kline is here to protect your virtue.
Or, possibly to punish you if you have sex. One or the other.
