Planned Parenthood Apologist Judge Targeted
Kansas pro-lifers are attempting a rare move to remove four of the state's seven Supreme Court justices, according to the AP. The Kansas governor appoints the Supreme Court judges and then voters periodically have the opportunity to vote whether or not to retain them. Kansans for Life is leading this non-retention attempt, with their chief target being Justice Carol Beier. Her 2006 and 2008 written opinions strongly criticized former Attorney General Phill Kline, who had taken on Planned Parenthood for breaking the law in shielding child molesters who had impregnated minors who then came to PP for abortions.
Continuing its "love affair" with Planned Parenthood, the Austin City Council recently voted unanimously to extend the abortion provider's lease with the city for $1 per year for the next 10 years. They also gave PP $50,000 of taxpayer dollars for "teen pregnancy education" services and, in conjunction with the Travis County Commissioners, channeled another $450,000 of tax dollars to PP. These funds help provide abortions to women for any reason — no medical "excuse" needed. In order to help pay for these "services," the City Council is raising property taxes by 4 percent.
Some good news is also coming from Austin, however. On September 24, pro-life Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott warned that abortion providers might not be fulfilling the law by using prerecorded telephone messages or one-way conference calls when explaining the medical risks to women seeking an abortion. The law requires that this information is provided to the woman orally by phone or in person. Actually hearing of those risks from a medical professional may dissuade some women from seeking an abortion, as opposed to a non-personal recorded message, as statistics show that the better informed women are, the more they tend to choose life.
Once again proving that the GOP is party of Life, a group designed to defend anti-abortion Democrats has been noticeably absent from this election cycle. Democrats for Life of America PAC, according to Federal Elections Commission filings, brought in only $2,431 and spent a paltry $308, making no contributions to federal candidates. The RNC for Life, on the other hand, has been vigorously endorsing and funding more than sixty 100% pro-life candidates in Congressional races all across the country.
