At the national March for Life last weekend, perennial favorite speaker,  co-chairman of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus,  Chris Smith, slammed the federal abortion agenda and the scientific community’s conspiracy on abortion harms.

“Abortion hurts women, physically, psychologically, and the data strongly suggests that it even mal-affects children subsequently born to women who abort,” he continued, saying at least 102 studies have yielded such findings… and at least 113 studies show a dramatic association between abortion and preterm birth in subsequent pregnancies – 36 percent after one abortion, a staggering 93 percent after two.”

However, Kansas’ health department doesn’t believe (more…)

Relief workers assist a pregnant Haitian

UPDATE, Feb 12: Shipments of medical aid to Haiti delayed by massive condom overload

Planned Parenthood has used the 9-11 attack, Hurricane Katrina, and now the earthquake that devastated Haiti, to raise funds for its  contraception and abortion services.

According to C-Fam research institute, International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) used the Haiti crisis to solicit funds for its family planning services there.

In contrast, at the same time, a pro-life medical team arrived in Port au Prince to provide emergency medical services and skilled birth attendants to aid the many women who have had to give birth in the streets.

A similarly twisted priority was exhibited this summer in Kansas.  Gov. Mark Parkinson– in the name of the state budget crisis– deleted annual maternal assistance to poor pregnant women while restoring the same amount ($325,000) to Planned Parenthood. (more…)

The “Fire Beier” initiative, begun by the KFL Political Action committee, will educate voters about the disinformation and dishonorable actions of Kansas Supreme Court Justice Carole Beier, acting more like the defense attorney for Kansas abortion businesses rather than an impartial judge.

As our press release explains, legal filings Monday for Kline assistant Eric Rucker reveal a hidden investigative report that again exonerated Kline and his assistants Rucker and Steve Maxwell for their conduct when obtaining abortion files.

Justice Beier has been a staff attorney for an extreme abortion rights firm and this may be what fuels her Kline vendetta, ignoring four rulings that clear Kline and his assistants– two of the rulings under the jurisdiction of Beier’s own Court: (more…)

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.

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. Alveda C. King, niece of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., travels the nation, expressing her poignant “Silent No More” post-abortion testimony. She also bears a special advocacy, from the days of her family’s involvement with civil rights,  on behalf of Black Americans being decimated by abortion:

Dr Alveda King’s challenge on this day commemorating her uncle’s murder, is “How can the dream survive if we murder the children?” (more…)

Students at 2009 state Rally (photo: Joseph Myers)

NARAL and NOW regularly bemoan the low number of genXers who appreciate their ‘struggle to secure abortion rights’. They’re right only in this sense– that the younger generation IS more pro-life than ever!

Students compose the majority of the roughly half million marchers (or more!) (more…)

Many are anticipating what can be accomplished in Kansas under a pro-life governor in 2011, and I hope restructuring the State Healing Arts Board is on the list.

We’ve endured seven years of pro-abortion Governor Kathleen Sebelius, not only her abortionist-protecting legislative vetoes, but also her appointees on this Board, who allowed decrepit and woman-injuring abortion clinics to stay in business.

Larry Buening

Sebelius’ abortion industry aid also extended to retaining the Board’s corrupt executive director, Larry Buening, the spouse of her long-time personal staffer.

Thousands of post-viability abortions were performed in Wichita –almost all of them on non-Kansans– because Buening protected the medical licenses of Kristin Neuhaus, who made the abortion “referrals,” and of LeRoy Carhart, Susan Robinson, Shelly Sella, and the late George Tiller, who performed the abortions.

Sebelius found a cushy SRS attorney job for Buening to keep his state pension, after the legislature threw him out in 2008. [It was not on account of his abortion ties, but because of a backlog of patient deaths and abuse complaints that lawmakers gave the axe to Buening and his top legal counsel, Mark Stafford.]

Buening’s replacement, Jack Confer, had cleaned up Arizona’s medical board mess, but after a rocky 16-month attempt at rehabilitating the Kansas Board, quit in mid-October. The Board is seeking (more…)
