Attorney General Paul Morrison announced today that he will file 19 misdemeanor charges against Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller. But they aren’t the charges that former Attorney General Phill Kline had tried to file, Associated Press reported. Morrison said that Tiller had a "technical violation" of state law by not relying on a financially and legally independent doctor in getting a second opinion on some late-term abortions. Morrison said he uncovered these violations during his office’s investigation of the case, and he said that the charges Kline had sought were "incorrect and based on a political agenda."
