He will be the first, and only, attorney or judge on the 15-member board, sitting as one of three “public” members who are not medically-credentialed.
Abortion lobbyists are complaining that the well-respected Macias has taken on pro-life clients, yet Governor Sebelius appointed to the Board known pro-abortion individuals, including
- pro-abortion leader /state representative, Carol Sader,
- Dr. “Boo” Hodges,
- Planned Parenthood advisor and pro-euthanasia Center for Practical Bioethics head, Myra Christopher.
This state medical board has protected abortionists and shown an inability to kick out lousy doctors for over 2 decades up through 2008, under Larry Buening as general counsel and executive director. See the expose in the Topeka Capitol Journal here.
Sebelius also appointed heavy campaign donors to the board, with possible conflicts of interest, read this summary.
