Kansas House panel endorses effort to change US Constitution

"...limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government..."<br>
So basically, they want to do away with the Supremacy Clause. Didn't we fight a civil war over this once before?<br>
The real heartbreaker is that in the last one, we were on the side of right and history. This time, not so much.

Kansas House panel endorses effort to change US Constitution

Kevin, I'm asking this in all seriousness and with curiosity. How do you, personally, define a "person"? What is it that makes any being a "person" to you?
(And sorry for the double post. LJW does that to me on occassion.)

Brownback rescinds protections for LGBT state employees

I can't WAIT to see what he does when he has same sex marriage shoved down his throat this July. (The pun is all intended.) Will he clutch his pearls and throw a hissy fit the way Alabama is doing?

Abortion foes expected to converge on Kansas Statehouse

A well written article on the fact that 20 week abortion bans protect no one, not even the fetus. In fact, 20 week "pain capable" abortion bans (which are based on "junk science" to begin with) effect only fetuses that are malformed and nonviable and will actually ensure that the fetus suffers if the woman is forced to go to term past the point where the fetus CAN feel pain.<br>

Abortion foes expected to converge on Kansas Statehouse

In seven years, from 2007 to 2014, the maternal mortality rate in the US nearly doubled from 14.5/100,000 births to 28/100,000 births. The US is now 57th among all nations in the entire world in their maternal mortality rate. (Meaning there are 57 nations with a LOWER rate.) The fastest rate of growth in this area has been among red states (including Kansas) with the harshest anti-abortion laws. They sacrifice women to the cult of the fetus.

It's so sad that this country allows the murder of born children by denying them food and healthcare and unchecked access to guns left laying around.

Republicans are murdering women (and this includes YOU, Kansas), all in the name of "life". But I don't expect a few dirty little facts to get in the way of their agenda.<br>

1. It's not a "baby" until it's born. 2. It's not a man's body and he SHOULD have no say in it. Trust me, if he is actually in a REAL supportive relationship with the woman, as a spouse or significant other, his thoughts and feelings WILL be considered. Otherwise, he can shut up and go away. Pregnancy can and does present unique health risks to women, up to and including the potential for death. And this country, despite certain parts of it hysterically trying to force women to stay pregnant who get pregnant, doesn't exactly support pregnant women. The US is 57th (you hear that? FIFTY FREAKING SEVENTH) in the entire world in maternal mortality. And you think someone...ANYONE else should have a say in whether a woman should stay pregnant? I don't "distance myself from the reality" of what abortion is. I know exactly what abortion is. I had one and I used to work in a clinic that did them. I don't think YOU know what it is or how it's done or why women do it. And the why part is none of your business.
