Three politically-charged events are actually deeply interlocked: unjustified injunctions from Judge Thomas Marten, a state Supreme Court-supervised panel ruling against Phill Kline, and the defense lawyer for Kris Neuhaus showing abortion files without permission.

The state of Kansas is currently appealing a Title X injunctive order for Planned Parenthood from Judge Marten, which echoes a situation seven years ago when he issued an abortion-helping preliminary injunction that was  overturned on appeal. Then Marten reinstated the injunction permanently!

In that case, abortion clinics and counselors had sued then-Attorney General Phill Kline for issuing an opinion that clinics needed to report all pregnant minors to law enforcement agencies.  Under child protective law, all physicians, counselors & teachers were required to report children injured (now the word is “harmed”) by physical, mental, or emotional abuse or neglect, or sexual abuse.”

Kline was aiming at prosecuting unreported statutory rape by adult predators, not ‘Romeo-Juliet’ pregnancy situation. For example during 2002-2003, 168 underage pregnant girls were aborted in Kansas but abortion clinics only reported 2!

Marten ruled that Kline’s opinion threatened the “informational privacy rights” of minors and that such was an ‘irreparable harm’ that trumped state child rape law.

Now we come to the second entangled matter: Thursday’s 3-person panel issuance that Kline’s professional actions violated attorney standards.

Notably, Kline is being punished by abortion defenders-in-high-places for daring to prosecute the abortion industry. The second charge of the panel is Kline’s supposedly deficient legal advice about abuse reporting to a grand jury investigating Planned Parenthood. In actuality, pro-abortion attorneys tried to confuse lay people on the jury about the Marten injunctions in relation to subpoenas for clinic records.

Invading abortion privacy/secrecy has been the heart of Kline’s supposed “crime” as formulated by the abortion cartel, former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and “third wave” feminist–and state Supreme Court Justice– Carol Beier.  It is the Democrat appointees who now dominate the State Supreme Court, in control of the ethics action against Kline. Language in the ethics charges come straight out of abortion attorney filings!

Medical privacy –not child safety–was the war cry used to dump Kline, after the courts had successfully tied up his prosecution of illegal late-term abortion until days before his 2006 re-election vote. And not one identity of an abortion patient has EVER been made public from Kline’s investigations or during file-handling by citizen-petitioned grand juries.

This is where the third matter of Neuhaus becomes entwined.  Eleven of the very abortion records ferreted out by Kline–at the expense of his political career–are being used by the state Board of Healing Arts i (more…)

Former Gov. Sebelius & Six

What would you offer– if you were a powerful personto induce a lawyer to bail you out of trouble?  Maybe that you’d get him/her on the federal bench?  Kathleen Sebelius had that political need, and has the power to deliver such an ‘abortion payback’ under Pres. Obama…for Steve Six.

Both Kansas Senators must refuse confirmation of Steve Six as suitable to be a federal judge.

Six has not demonstrated any notable record of accomplishment during his Sebelius-appointments.  Rather he has shown himself to be partisan and pro-abortion.  He was willing to interrupt his comfortable law practice and this judicial nomination is his reward for jumping to help Sebelius and the abortion industry.

In December 2007, Gov. Sebelius needed to quickly replace her sex-scandalized Attorney General, Paul Morrison.  Two years earlier, (more…)

Kansas turned a historic corner Tuesday.  With pro-lifers winning nearly every significant state office, the health of Kansas women, and safety of unborn children, will be better protected.

  • The U.S. Senate and Congress will now benefit from strong Kansas voices against Obamacare;
  • Gov.-elect Sam Brownback, will welcome, and sign, the many pro-life bills Sebelius vetoed.

Kansans for Life rejoices that the electorate expelled Sebelius’ hand-selected abortion-industry-protector, AG Stephen Six, and hopes that the Johnson County prosecution of Planned Parenthood will engage the assistance of AG-elect Derek Schmidt.

The 125-member Kansas House increased it’s pro-life majority to over 2/3 as nearly 80% of KFL-supported state representative candidates won their races.  Correction Nov.5: Of the 20% losses, notably 4 endorsed pro-life incumbent Democrats were unseated by Republicans (3 pro-life and 1 undeclared).

The ‘Fire Beier’ campaign– started by the KFL political action committee to discourage retention of 4 (more…)

Campaign regulation bills are flying in the Kansas Statehouse from the governmental ethics office, the  gay lobby and Kansas A.G. Steve Six.   All would impinge on 1st amendment protected free speech and some would even silence KFL during the critical election seasons.

We defeated (at least temporarily) SB 456, are concerned about SB 563 (placing judges under campaign law) and strongly oppose HB 2082 (formerly SB 418) which has been whisked through committee and awaits a Senate vote. UPDATE: March 23: The Senate debated new 2079 (old SB 563) and failed to attach HB 2082 to it, by a vote of 18-21. HB 2079 is on hold.

HB 2082 violates Court rulings that separate direct electioneering from unregulated free speech during the election season.

“Issue advocacy” is what policy groups do to educate the public without advocating the specific election or defeat of those candidates.   This includes, but is not limited to, comprehensive voting guides, candidate forums and newsletters discussing legislative actions.

Such “issue advocacy” does not function as an ‘in-kind’ political donation and need not be regulated. The government is not (more…)

Late today, pro-lifers sunk A.G. Six’s Robo-Call Privacy Act (SB 456) by a final vote of 13-27 in the Senate.  The bill would have restricted the use of auto-dial calls by non-profit groups, including Kansans for Life.

This is a big win, especially since A.G. Six put out a big press push yesterday (see his website).

Kansans for Life opposed SB 456, warning that the bill exempted arbitrary entities and hampered free speech.  Kansas already has a Do-Not-Call law, which applies to unwanted business calls.

Sen. Terry Bruce (R-Hutchinson) carried the opposition to SB 456, and warned that it violated Constitutionally-protected free speech with severe financial penalties.

Sen. Karin Brownlee (R-Olathe) and Sen. Dick Kelsey (R-Goddard) warned about the chilling effect the bill would have on various charities.

Before the vote, Sen. Tim Huelskamp (R-Fowler) secured an amendment to exempt political speech, which is really the target of such bills.

Senators who voted to protect free speech (more…)
