Subpoena received for Tiller records

February 6, 2008


— The Kansas attorney general's office received a subpoena Tuesday for abortion records in connection with a grand jury investigation into allegations against Wichita abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.

Earlier in the day, the Kansas Supreme Court temporarily blocked the Sedgwick County grand jury's access to 2,000 patient records from Tiller.

But the grand jury also issued a subpoena for records from Tiller's office that were collected during an investigation by former Attorney General Phill Kline.

Ashley Anstaett, a spokeswoman for current Attorney General Stephen Six, said the office was "evaluating" how to respond to the subpoena.

Abortion opponents allege Tiller violated state law that restricts late-term abortion. Tiller has denied any wrongdoing.

1) Where in the article is there any discussion of withholding evidence? 2) Why is the creepy anti-choice fascination with the genitals of others not a crime? These people should have to register with the police.

The records are private. The medical procedure was private. I guess we should just start using aliases and paying with cash.
