10-year-old’s abortion is center of Tiller hearing
A 10-year-old girl who received an abortion became the center of a Kansas attorney general’s argument to obtain patient records from a Wichita clinic. Here was a possible child-rape victim, officers for then-Attorney General Phill Kline told a Topeka judge in 2006 — and a crime that abortion provider George Tiller didn’t report, as required by law. They wanted to find out whether Tiller hadn’t reported other crimes, and they needed his records to do that. The hearing is also making public for the first time details of a secret investigation conducted for three years by the state’s top prosecutor against Kansas abortion providers. The case of the 10-year-old girl who received a late-term abortion has become the center of Tiller’s defense team’s argument. MORE at The Wichita Eagle.
