What's NOT The Matter With Kansas?
The Kansas Supreme Court has issued a temporary injunction in the state AG's pursuit of records from two abortion clinics. The state is attempting to get at patient records to determine if the clinics violated Kansas' law in making information and procedures available to minors. But the high court held that a lower court needed to demonstrate that the AG had a right to the records and that the AG would properly protect patient confidentiality. The latter may prove difficult for Phill Kline, the AG, considering that he is an abortion opponent and has argued that one reason the state seeks the records is to determine if minors under the age of 16 have been sexually active, illegal in Kansas and equated with child abuse.
One wonders if AG Kline plans to expose the hussies and parade them in the public square? Here's hoping the lower court shuts Kline down.
I agree that blogger being down required the rending of clothing and gnashing of teeth.
Meanwhile, you should consider picking up DBK's old habit of "Naked Frog Wednesdays." I miss those and on Blanton and Ashton's.
So far, the post preceeding is here...
Are you referring to the Health Insurance Portability Act that protects third party disclosure of health related consumer information????
I think you need a refund on that Ivy League education!
This is such a despicable practice. Why not threaten those traumatised women with a week in the stocks in the public square. That's what it reminds me of.
What I can't believe is that the AG let the cat out of the bag on his secondary intentions--torpodoes his whole case, IMHO. Of course, this *IS* Kansas after all and nothing is guaranteed.
I'll be expecting a Neil Shakespeare original on that very topic in the near future. In the meantime, I'll mention it to Lily. I'm sure she'll organize it.
