KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ An anti-abortion group says it has been given abortion records that were improperly discarded at a clinic in Kansas City, Kan.

Operation Rescue said Wednesday a confidential informant delivered the records from Central Family Medicine to the organization. The records involve 86 women and minors treated at the clinic in April.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/JPzJun ) clinic officials said Wednesday that a locked trash bin was broken into last week but no records were improperly discarded. The clinic's attorney said Kansas City, Kan., police and the FBI have been notified.

Operation Rescue president Troy Newman says the records are being kept in a secure location and have been offered them to state officials. He said the organization has no intention of making the records public.
