Court to hear abortion case

The state's highest court has scheduled arguments from attorneys for Sept. 8 on whether it should prevent Attorney General Phill Kline's office from gaining access to records from two abortion clinics.

This will be interesting. Kline is trying to make sure the laws governing abortion clinics are being followed and needs records to be able to investigate. The abortion mills want to keep their records secret. Granted, "patients" (if that's what you call the ladies who are sacrificing their young at abortion clinics) are entitled to medical record privacy according to the law...but I believe Kline either doesn't need names or the info wouldn't go outside his office.

I need to refresh my memory. Stay tuned.

You're right. It's a big case. I always get nervous when The Supremes take up a case like this. You never know which side of the issue they will wind up on.

By the way, Balance of Power's topic this week is Abortion. Should be fun.
