— Gov. Sam Brownback's Facebook page on Thursday was getting swamped with posts, some of them graphic, critical of his stance on abortion and other reproductive issues.

Brownback's spokeswoman could not be reached for comment.

Brownback signed into law several anti-abortion measures last year. The Legislature is considering several more this year.

Last month, Brownback was criticized by abortion rights supporters when he said women who want health care coverage that includes birth control but work for employers who oppose birth control based on religious reasons should go work elsewhere.

Abolition now. Repeal the Marxist medical takeover with its mandatory abortion rider. (The Marxist medical takeover actually includes a gag rule prohibiting disclosure of the plan’s abortion coverage until the sucker is enrolled, after which he gets the mandatory abortion surcharge shoved down his throat, not less than $1 per enrollee per month, or perhaps much more, depending on the number of unrestricted taxpayer-funded abortions, the money to be collected even in states that have enacted abortion opt-out laws. South Dakota has just joined Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Virginia in opting out of abortion coverage in their federally-mandated insurance plans. Since the Marxist medical takeover calls for a great many federal rules to be made up and enforced by the Mombasa Marxist regime following the 2012 election, there is no way to tell what state medical coverage laws may be ignored or swept aside.)

Another thing about the GOP and their uterus-envy is that they are not willing to help me maintain and take healthful care of my own uterus and/or that of other women, or to alleviate the risks of cancer I and we have simply because I/we have a uterus.

While they think they can rule my uterus, they refuse to help me care for it by today's medical standards. Why do you suppose that is?

It is because the GOP interest in abortion is NOT about life.

It is about stirring a base, and about the massive manipulation of emotions of their own GOP members. And slowly and surely, many of those GOP voters are waking up to this ridiculous pre-occupation the GOP leaders have with manipulating the members emotions. Because of this, we will see the total destruction of a grand old party I once loved. And they will take aspects of the US Christian church with them. Good riddance to both, I say.

A question to the would-be womb monitors out there: If I regard killing trees to be abhorrent may I forcibly occupy your land and prohibit you from cutting them down? And their little saplings? Just hoping for a little consistency. Good fences make good neighbors.

I have grown to be a pro-choice prohibitist. I suspect that some of the GOP leaders in this state are alcoholics. I know (!) by having seen some of our DC Congressmen in their element, that alcoholism is rampant in them as well.

There are two things I want to know regarding GOP candidates before I will vote for them: Are they anti-choice regarding abortion? Are they alcoholic charismatics?

HEY GOP, Address alcoholism, not abortion!!

This is what I don't get. The GOP wants to pretend to be interested in "family values" by taking up the abortion issue. Meanwhile the GOP continues to ignore the issue of the effect of alcohol abuse on a marriage and family. If the GOP were really interested in "family values", they would tackle issues surround alcoholism, and NOT abortion.

All of this abortion interest by the GOP is simply superficial, designed to stir a base. In my experience, from what I have seen in this life, teens of the GOP members get abortions just as often as liberals.

AS you know, I am not a fan of alcoholism. And I also know that you can (!) recognize who is alcoholic and who is not by their behaviors, online and in person. Yep, those substance abuse people who think they are hiding an illness that leads to a specific set of behaviors are in total denial. Read these books and learn to spot the hidden alcoholic. http://www.preventragedy.com/

Substance abuse is the real problem the GOP should be addressing if indeed they are really interested in "family values". I suspect that the GOP wil not take up the real "family values" issue of substance abuse is because the issue hits way, way too close to home.

Here are the facts: 1-10 Americans are recovering from substance abuse. http://www.bing.com/search?q=1+in+10+Americans+are+recovering+from+substance+abuse.&form=MOZSBR&pc=MOZI

7.5 Million Children Living With Parents Who Abuse Alcohol http://www.bing.com/search?q=7.5+Million+Children+Living+With+Parents+Who+Abuse+Alcohol&form=MOZSBR&pc=MOZI

A consumption increase of 1 liter of alcohol per capita brings about an increase in the divorce rate of about 20%. This finding contrasts with results, using expenditures as the aggregate alcohol measure, that show that an increaseof 1/1,000 in the divorce rate leads to a 10% increase in alcohol expenditures. http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/Alcohol_Consumption_and_Divorce_Rates_in_the_United_States/658.html

And there is so much more to all of this: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/sections/alcohol/

"Jones-Sontag made the same observation about Brownback's online supporters and has noticed that being a "follower" or a "friend" doesn't necessarily mean being a supporter.

"It's not just supporters, it's also members of the media, it's also Democrats who don't necessarily support the senator but want to know what he's doing," she said.

One of the reservations politicians have of using social media is a fear of being attacked. And these concerns aren't unfounded. Internet decorum is as oxymoronic as jumbo shrimp and civil war. One visit to the YouTube comments section could make an atheist pray for the Apocalypse.

But Bundy and Jones-Sontag both said the discourse on their campaigns has been mostly non-Apocalyptic.:"

Don't you just love how Sherriene Jones-Sontag went to school for this only to be schooled royally by it. I am wondering if she feels the Apocalypse is getting closer.

If we are going to regulate women's bodies and choices can we start at a preventative point? Let's intervene BEFORE they even get pregnant. Tubal libations for everyone and when they can pay to reverse it themself THEN they can have kids. Then the issue of murder will never come up.

Kansas to Pregnant Women: "A Little Lie from Your Doctor Won't Hurt You"

We may not all agree about abortion, but we can all agree that these decisions ought to be made by a woman and her family, not a politician.

Ask Dr. Brownback... Women (and Men) Ask the Governor for Reproductive Health Advice

Kansas Governor Brownback may soon have the chance to sign into law one of if not the most onerous anti-choice, anti-woman bill in the nation, including explicit directives for doctors to lie to women, amnesty from medical malpractice for doctors who do lie to women, forced utrasounds, additional taxes on women and prohibitions of what insurance they can buy with their own money.

The law is, in sum, a mandate for forced pregnancy.

Now that the governor has decided to control everyone's reproductive and sexual health lives from his office, the the women and men of the state are seeking his advice. We've taken some screenshots in case the office of the governor, which you will remember once went after a little girl for asking questions he did not like, decides to scrub them all.

I find it interesting that those who want government out of a woman's body, for the most part, support Obamacare. If you want to see government intervention in not only women's health, but EVERYONE'S health, wait until THIS thing hits. Then there will be nothing about your body that the government (oops, this is America --your fellow countrymen) will not control.

Don't tell me I haven't read the bill. I have.

I find it wrong for Brownback to use our tax money and to create fake law to limit or block women from a civil right.

Real news would have the headline of, "Conservative governor reconsiders stance on abortion after reading facebook post". That is a good starting point for an Onion article.

Of course not. She's too busy deleting the comments off of Facebook.
