Sweeping abortion bill approved by Kansas House committee

Whatever, drama queen. Abortions in this state are performed at the pre-viability stage, unless there's something wrong with the fetus or the mom. Pre-viability means it's not a 'baby', it's a semi-developed embryo. Comparing it to killing a fully formed baby that can survive outside the womb is just dumb.

If, at that pre-viability point, a woman makes the (incredibly difficult) decision that she is just unwilling or unable to care for a child and does not wish to have a baby, then by god I absolutely give her life and her decisions more weight than the undeveloped embryo that can't live or function on it's own. It's unfortunate, it's tragic, but it's ultimately the best decision. I have worked with CINC cases with parents who absolutely did not want to be parents and should never have been parents, and there are worse things than death.

Life is fragile, and life is hard, and not everyone or every potential one makes it to the end. The last thing we need are more unfit, unwilling, apathetic, terrible parents. People make mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes, and accidents happen even to those who are responsible and careful. Short of committing a crime, nobody should have to live with their mistakes for 18+ years, women and children included.

You DO know that no form of birth control is 100% effective, right? Do you really want to live in a world where women are that terrified to sleep with you?

It's not hard to fertilize 39 eggs in one year if you're a dude.

Bill introduced to abolish death penalty in Kansas

People in Kansas cannot be given the death penalty for rape or child molestation. Only for premeditated murder or murder committed during the commission of a list of inherently dangerous felonies.

What eye for an eye? We haven't executed anyone in 18 years. LWOP is what we have now anyway, stupid to keep calling it the death penalty when it isn't.

Former Ottawa superintendent receiving full salary of $10,899 per month and benefits

I went to school and have two degrees. When do I start earning my $130k per year?

Bill introduced to abolish death penalty in Kansas

Wow, and proposed by a Republican no less! Good on him. Might as well do it, it's stupid to have the death penalty and not enforce it, waste of time.

Opinion: Ottawa’s Ojeleye a star

KRichards is absolutely correct. Players buying marijuana for their own personal use no more constitutes participating in a 'drug ring' than you buying a bottle of aspirin at Walgreen's. If you are the end user of the product, then it's not a drug ring, by its very definition. AND, if you think that some athletes at *every* university from elite D1 programs down to the tiniest JUCO teams are not now and have not for the last 40+ years bought and smoked their fair share of weed, then you are living in a fantasy world, my friend.

*snort* The day KU has a reputation for a 'thug environment' is the day I will eat my national championship t-shirt with a knife and fork. Laughable statement.
