TOPEKA, Kan. — A doctor plans to ask for an investigation of Kansas' state attorney general and Bill O'Reilly over comments by the Fox television host that he got information from Kansas abortion records, the doctor's attorneys said Saturday.
Dr. George Tiller, who performs abortions, said he will ask the Kansas Supreme Court on Monday to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate and take possession of the records of 90 patients from two clinics.
Attorney General Phill Kline obtained the records recently after a two-year battle that prompted privacy concerns. He has said he sought the records to review them for evidence of possible crimes, including rape and illegal abortions.
During a Friday broadcast of "The O'Reilly Factor," the conservative host said a "source inside" told the show Tiller performs late-term abortions when a patient is depressed, which O'Reilly deemed "executing babies."
A spokeswoman for Kline, who received redacted copies of the records Oct. 24, said he doesn't know how O'Reilly obtained the information.
Kline, an abortion opponent and Republican in a tight race with Democrat Paul Morrison, was interviewed by O'Reilly during the Friday segment.
