Against abortion


Kansas lawmakers were at the forefront of Monday's Washington D.C. "March for Life" rally protesting the 32nd anniversary of the Roe V. Wade decision that legalized abortion."The end of abortion on demand has started in America," Sen. Sam Brownback told the thousands of marchers.Reps. Jim Ryun and Todd Tiahrt also spoke at the demonstration, according to [The Wichita Eagle:][1]"Brownback also talked about a 'culture of life' in his speech, and Tiahrt called for more conservative judges in his. "'One judge can redefine marriage, not as it's found on the pages of Genesis, but something they make up entirely,' Tiahrt said.""And on a day when he was clearly a crowd favorite -- one woman held a sign that said 'Values voters for Brownback '08' -- Brownback said a 'spring of life' has begun. "'The season has come,' he said. 'This is a day to march, to move forward and end this wrong.'"According to [Talon News,][2] a conservative news service: "Rep. Jim Ryun (R-KS) quoted a line from President Bush's inaugural address, saying, 'Americans at our best value the life we see in one another and always remember that even the unwanted have worth.'"Other links: Pat Roberts links [Pentagon briefs about 'humint,' Sen.
