Kansas is one of only six states that allows its citizens to petition to form grand juries. The seeming complicity of Attorney General Paul Morrison and other abortion industry beneficiaries with the clinics suggests why this law can be useful. Continue reading

After nearly six months of dithering on the charges against Dr. George Tiller, Attorney General Paul Morrison re-interpreted the state’s tough late term abortion law to mean that it did not matter whether a woman had a legally justifiable need for an abortion as long as two unaffiliated doctors said she did.

KS House Speaker’s Failed Leadership Lets Abortionist Off The Hook

May 24, 2007 By  3 Comments

Neufeld blocked every effort to bring abortionist Tiller to justice

Topeka, KS — House Speaker Melvin Neufeld’s failed leadership on life issues has allowed late-term abortionist George R. Tiller to continue to flout Kansas law that bans abortions after the 21st week of gestation. After blocking efforts by pro-life groups and legislators to take meaningful action to insure that Kansas abortion laws are enforced, Neufeld proposed a series of ineffective and inadequate plans that served to essentially paralyze the House on the Tiller matter.

KS lawmaker alleges conspiracy with Johnson Countian of the Year Award

5 years, 11 months ago

Suburban myth or behind-the-scenes revelation?

A Kansas state representative alleges that the Johnson Countian of the Year Award, given by the Johnson County Community College’s nonprofit foundation, was determined by just two people for 14 years.

Rep. Ben Hodge, an Overland Park Republican, told KMBZ radio Sunday that from its inception in 1987 to 2001, the award was decided by former Kansas Senate President Dick Bond of Overland Park and Charles Carlsen, former president of Johnson County Community College.

Why is that interesting? Bond won the award in 1996 and Carlsen two years later. Continue reading
