Unethical to uphold the law?

The professional fate of Phill Kline, Kansas's former attorney general, is now in the hands of the Kansas Supreme Court. A complaint was filed against him for trying to prosecute abortion providers.

A hearing was held yesterday before the state Supreme Court in the continuing effort to disbar Kline for alleged ethics violations. Dana Cody of the Life Legal Defense Foundation (LLDF) tells OneNewsNow that disciplinary administrator Stanton Haslett has recommended that Kline's license be revoked.

Cody, Dana (LLDF)"The disciplinary administrator and his deputy took things out of context, made conclusions inferring things like … they could get inside Phill Kline's head," Cody details.

"There was really no evidence that he violated any ethical directive in his role as the state attorney general, or later on as the Johnson County district attorney."

In fact, the LLDF spokesperson tells OneNewsNow Kline did an excellent job as a prosecutor.

"He went after Planned Parenthood and George Tiller's clinic for not reporting statutory rape, for not protecting young girls who were victims," she reports.

She adds that "it just appears to be a totally politically-motivated prosecution" that came about because the state was under the control of then-Governor Kathleeen Sebelius (D), a strong supporter of abortion and Planned Parenthood.

Sebelius is now U.S. secretary of Health and Human Services, and her appointees dominate the disciplinary administrators and the Kansas Supreme Court.
