Phill Kline: Punished for Truth and Life
October 24, 2011
OAKLAND, Calif., (christiansunite.com) -- On Saturday, November 5, at a benefit dinner for the Life Legal Defense Foundation, former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline will talk about how his investigation of illegal practices by abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, led to unfounded accusations against him.
Pro-abortion advocates have wrongly accused him of not doing his job according to the law when, in fact, he was following the law diligently while administrating his professional duties. Unfortunately, by following the rules, Kline ended up facing the abuse of power by his political opposition in Kansas.
Last week, a professional ethics panel recommended that Kline have his Kansas state law license suspended indefinitely, and the Kansas Supreme Court will most likely give a final decision on that recommendation by the spring of next year. Kline was Kansas attorney general from 2003 to 2007 and Johnson County district attorney for two years. He is currently teaching law at Liberty University.
The Life Legal Defense Foundation has been supporting Kline's defense from the start, and will be available to assist him in any appeal.
"What is happening to our rights in our nation when people are punished for seeking out the truth and believing in life?" said Dana Cody, Executive Director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation. "We hope the Kansas Supreme Court will see the actions against Phill Kline as illegal and unethical."
The benefit dinner will be on Saturday, November 5 starting at 6:00 PM, at the Lake Merritt Hotel, 1800 Madison Street, in Oakland. For more information, go to www.lldf.org/featured/twenty-second-annual-benefit-dinner
