Former attorney general punished for his pro-life actions?

That appears to be the case. Former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline was the first prosecutor to charge Planned Parenthood and late-term abortion provider, George Tiller, with crimes for failure to report child abuse and for violation of late term abortion restrictions.  Kansas trial judges found "probable cause" that crimes had been committed.

For his trouble, he had his law license taken away, in what he says is a political vendetta. Now the U.S. Supreme Court is being asked to reverse that decision.

For background, go here, here and here. Chicago-based Thomas More Society is joining efforts to overturn the action.
