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.

Kansas lawmakers attend ALEC meeting in D.C.

Getting their marching orders ahead of the legislative session in January. They don't even bother to hide it anymore.

Letter: Medicare threat

The Health Care Compact is not an actual "thing" at the moment. It hasn't been approved by Congress and will be a substantial change in the ACA if it goes through. Several states that have outright rejected the ACA have unified on it but it can't clear the Feds for now. <br>
But trust me, if the GOP takes the Senate and Brownback retains his seat, you WILL see this happen in Kansas.<br>
So how does this go along with BB's touted efforts to recruit retirees to the state? Because I can GUARANTEE no one on Medicare would set foot in the state. One more source of income for Kansas down the toilet.<br>
I was born and grew up in Kansas. I spent 50 of my 62 years in that state. I'm also on Medicare. But as long as Brownback stays in power there I won't be coming home. And that breaks my heart. I'm homesick. I want to go home. But the truth is, I have been ostracized from my own state. All because I am old.

Davis loses ground to Brownback in Kansas governor's race

"More than enoguh government control"...unless it's in a woman's uterus. And then there is never enough.
