You've seen all the press lately on parents' demanding to know if a sexual predator is in their neighborhood. Likewise, what parent wouldn't want evidence of a possible sexually based offense against a child reported to the authorities?

Earlier this year, Phillip Kline, the attorney general of Kansas, subpoenaed the medical records of ninety women "who received late-term abortions at two Kansas clinics in 2003." In his application to the Kansas Supreme Court, Kline made his reasons for the request clear: to see if the clinics had violated Kansas law against late-term abortions and to investigate possible sexual predators.

According to Kansas health officials, seventy-eight girls under the age of 15 had abortions there in 2003. Since, under Kansas law, as in most states, no girl under fifteen can legally consent to sex, these girls were all the victims of, at least, statutory rape, a sex crime punishable by as much as thirteen years in prison.

This highlights a little-known and even less-discussed aspect of the abortion industry: In addition to destroying a human life, the abortion clinics can also withhold or destroy evidence of a crime. The abortion industry, as we all know, promotes the image of being responsible, of helping frightened teenaged girls whose boyfriends got them pregnant.
