(LifeSiteNews.com) – Planned Parenthood in Kansas moved to silence certain details of their abortion business while facing accusations of aborting babies beyond the gestational age legal in the state, according to documents unsealed last week.
Judge Stephen Tatum unsealed the documents in a criminal case brought by Kansas state prosecutors against the abortion group involving 58 counts related to illegal late-term abortions. Planned Parenthood, who originally faced charges alongside Kansas late-term abortionist George Tiller, is seeking dismissal of all charges.
According to records obtained by Operation Rescue, Planned Parenthood had moved to censor or cast doubt upon state prosecutors’ case under a long list of rationales.
Operation Rescue said that the abortion group had moved to ignore a 2005 law extending the statute of limitations, to question jurors about their religious beliefs, and to prohibit prosecutors from asking about the cost of abortions, handwriting discrepancies in abortion reports, or the weight of the unborn children aborted - and even from using the terms “late-term abortion,” “child,” “baby,” and “infant” in the courtroom, or referring to slain unborn children as abortion “victims.” the rest
