KANSAS CITY, Kan. – An anti-abortion group says it has the patient records of dozens of women and girls who sought treatment at a Kansas City, Kan., abortion clinic last month – a claim the clinic’s attorney says is meant to scare off potential patients and would suggest a crime was committed.

Troy Newman, the president of Wichita-based Operation Rescue, said a confidential informant delivered boxes to the group about two weeks ago that contained the records of 86 female patients who sought treatment at Central Family Medicine.

Newman said the records contained patient names, addresses and other identifying details, as well as information about patients’ pregnancies. He said he didn’t know how the man obtained the records, but he said the man insisted he got them legally.

Newman said the records contain proof of violations, including failure to report child sexual abuse.
