LifeNews.com – New Regulations May Shut Down Kansas Abortion Centers

Monday, June 27th, 2011

Ironically, most provisions in the new Kansas law were taken from the published standards of the National Abortion Federation!  To that was added requirements that any abortion must be done by a Kansas-licensed physician with local hospital privileges, and that chemical abortion pills must not be provided via computer.

Contrary to abortion supporters’ rant on this page, the law complies with decades of abortion court rulings, and is particularly governed by Greenville Women’s Clinic v. Bryant, 222 F.3d 157 (4th Cir.2000). The U.S. Supreme Court did not take the Greenville lower court case for review, and let stand the ruling that South Carolina state standards for licensing abortion clinics ARE constitutional. The court found the state’s regulations:

  • did not impose an undue burden on the right to seek abortion;
  • do serve a valid purpose in safeguarding the health of women;
  • had a rational basis for regulating abortion clinics, while not regulating other healthcare facilities, [noting that] abortions are “inherently different from other medical procedures, because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life.”

Jonah Goldberg, National Review, on Delta Airlines-Saudi partnership – We Love To Fly Without Jews and Bibles, And It Shows

Friday, June 24th, 2011

USA Today:

“Saudi Arabia, which is governed by strict Islamic law, requires citizens of almost every country to obtain a visa. People who wish to enter the country must have a sponsor; women, who must be dressed according to Saudi standards of modesty, must be met at the Saudi airport by a man who will act as a chaperone.

Saudi Arabia bans anyone with an Israeli stamp in their passport from entering the country, even in transit. Many Jews believe the kingdom has also withheld visas from travelers with Jewish-sounding names.”
