Abortion Foes See More Clues in Unsealed Cases

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Since Phill Kline lost the job, fellow abortion opponents have been trying to persuade Kansans that the attorney general's office has been protecting abortion providers.

They've pulled information from campaign finance records, court documents and people's public statements to fill in the mosaic of what they view as problems within state government.

And they anticipate gathering more pieces from hundreds of pages of documents in two cases before the Kansas Supreme Court.

Those cases were sealed for 11 months, and the justices made them public last week.

Abortion opponents have argued for years that state government has given abortion clinics preferential treatment.

Abortion rights supporters dismiss those claims as nonsense.

The allegations have stoked an intense debate that casts a large shadow over Kansas politics and is likely to do so for some time.
