Wow, almost $600K in taxpayer money wasted on lawyers when each Kansas woman could have been shown the empowering respect of letting her decide for herself how best to control her reproductive life.
Whatever happened to the Republican mantra of "getting government off the backs of the people"? Don't they know women are people? People who can vote?
Interesting concept. Another one would be protecting the rights of the unborn. I dont like the money grubbing from either side of the asile, but given the choice, would side with the children who would be aborted and protecting their rights.
A fair and moral choice...if the fetus is yours. If the fetus is not yours and is not inside your body, the choice is not yours to make.
How about spreading a little pf that "rights protection" to born children in this state and making sure they have food, clothing, housing and education? Oh that's right, you people believe in post birth abortion. The minute it sticks it's head out of the birth canal it's on it's own.
"The Kansas attorney general's office paid outside lawyers almost $597,000 through March to defend anti-abortion laws enacted last year."
Rather than defending goofy laws designed to stop women from their legal rights. I sure would like the Attorney Generals office to declare war on ID theft and consumer fraud. That is my wish. Protect our rights and our commerce
That would be nice pace, however this AG has pretty much gutted the Consumer Protection Division and has no plans to improve it. You know, might just upset some of the business owners by going after the crooked ones.
Sez the person who wouldn't give up a dime in taxes to keep WIC going.
So because you make more money, you are obviously "right".
That is what ebeneezer Scrooge said before the three spirits visited him. How long is your chain? You've been adding to it's length which each post...
You are demanding the attorney general of the state should spend his resources and our tax money on defending goofy law to block abortions. You don't want them to do anything to fight ID theft, consumer fraud, graft, or organized crime. I got good news for you, your dream has come true. They aren't fighting crime.
No, I don't think President Obama is the reason the attorney general of the state of Kansas is spending his resources and our tax money to defend goofy laws designed to block a woman access to a medical right. You just mean you hate Obama and to you , that is reason . You seem to be avoiding taking responsibility for not wanting the attorney general's to spend his time and our money on fraud. I don't mind you wanting the attorney general's office not to do a proper job, but in this case, I would say, own that. Don't blame Obama for every thing the radical right pulls.
You might feel it, but even you know, it doesn't answer "You are demanding the attorney general of the state should spend his resources and our tax money on defending goofy law to block abortions. You don't want them to do anything to fight ID theft, consumer fraud, graft, or organized crime. I got good news for you, your dream has come true. They aren't fighting crime".
You could move to Pakistan. I hear the Taliban still has influence there...
You are saying the Attorney General's office should not do anything on ID fraud? You don't want them to do anything to fight ID theft, consumer fraud, graft, or organized crime. They aren't fighting crime" they are fighting women. If I moved to Pakistan i would fight for women's rights and fight religious zealots who have no respect for others. But to do that, I don't have to move. You sound like you would be more comfortable with the Taliban mentality than me.
I was suggesting that rc1977 should move to Pakistan. He would fit in there with his beliefs.
yes, I am sorry, I didn't follow the response line. I tried to post a correction but failed.
No one loves an abortion. It is, however, legal for a woman to make this difficult choice. It would not be necessary if irresponsible men were castrated, then place in stocks in a public place.
Sad. Sad that right wing ideologues demagogue this painful and personal issue for their own political gain.
Is having an abortion a good thing? No. Neither are having a heart transplant or cancer surgery.
Is abortion a necessary option? Yes.
It is sad that there are shameless ideologues who exploit this issue for political gain. Sad.
The GOP will pay for this next November. Watch and see.
This money could have gone towards helping women who chose to have an abortion, but didn't have enough money to have a baby. Think of how many it would have helped. And educating the born. Instead it went to a lawyer who probably has more money than he needs anyway.
Now we know one of the reasons The Guv didn't fund the arts in Kansas. He knew the state would need the money to defend BS laws.
Wait until it comes time to defend the discriminatory law designed solely to punish Lawrence for having the sheer audacity to believe that people have rights.
Told ya the Gov had a jobs plan. It seems mainly targeted at law firms, but it's a start.
The art of corporate welfare, heaven forbid they fight id theft, consumer fraud or crime.
That wasn't very American of you FalseHope. Americans don't eat eagles.
Eagles are no longer a protected species. It would be a misdemeanor at most and you'd have to pay a fine :P
I'm not; and never was, my Mother's body.
Perhaps, but you were an internal parasite.
hoping they are sowing the seeds for their defeat in the next few statewide elections.
Right wing (Taliban) extremism wins out over the GOP's fictional fiscal conservatism. They are about returning society to a late 1800's era where white men dominated everything. It is time Americans generally and Kansans specifically wake up and realize that is what they are about...
Now HERE'S a rather cool piece of legislation.
"No physician or health care provider licensed to practice in the State of Alabama shall be forced by state or local regulatory authority to perform any medical service or component of medical service if the service or component of service is not medically necessary or would be harmful to the patient and the patient does not desire the medical service. The right to practice within the scope of a medical license supersedes any existing or future legislative act. "
Too bad we don't have any legislators in the Kansas State House with the brass to introduce something similar.
