The U.S. House rushed approval late this afternoon of a nasty bill undermining free speech, called the DISCLOSE act. UPDATE, June 29: Liberal McClatchy media, including KCStar, editorializes against the bill.

The so-called campaign finance disclosure bill will disable grassroots political voices. The bill was altered behind closed doors last night and forced to a floor vote, breaking the protocol of a minimum 24-hour waiting period.

National Right to Life  calls the bill, “unconstitutional, unprincipled, and nakedly partisan.”  Even the ACLU agrees that this bill protects those groups that don’t challenge the status quo while suppressing those groups that do challenge the status quo.

Approximately 2,000 prolifers–- many under age 18– marched from the Topeka Performing Arts Center to the KFL Rally for Life at the Kansas Supreme Court Judicial Center Friday, Jan.22, marking the 37th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade.  Prominent were signs from the national “Silent No More” post-abortion-regret campaign.

A dozen crisis pregnancy center directors and counselors from around the state were given recognition and received baby supplies brought by Rally participants.  Bradley Fisher of Abilene, the 2009 winner of KFL’s state high school oratory contest, gave his winning speech and student winners in KFL’s annual grade school poster contest were also recognized.

KFL  Executive Director Mary Kay Culp announced the KFL Political Action Committee campaign, “Fire Beier” to educate voters about why they should vote NOT to retain the Kansas Supreme Court Justices up for retention in November, 2010, particularly Justice Carole Beier. (More on this in next post as new developments were breaking Monday.)

Kansas Rep. Lance Kinzer (R-Olathe) was the keynote speaker and pro-life state legislators were in attendance. Remarks on behalf of the 4th District Congressman Todd Tiahrt were delivered by his wife, Vicki.
