Hearing Set over Abortion Records

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) _ Johnson County prosecutors seeking charges against Planned Parenthood say they already have abortion records
for their case.

They want the state health department to authenticate some of the documents, but health department officials say state law doesn't allow them to meet District Attorney Phill Kline's request. They say the law prohibits them from giving abortion information to anyone except the state attorney general and the Board of Healing Arts.

A hearing on the issue is set for Thursday in Johnson County District Court.

Kline filed a 107-count criminal complaint against Planned Parenthood in October. The charges include allegations that the agency's Overland Park clinic performed unlawful late-term abortions and kept inadequate
records.
