Op-Ed, Benjamin Hodge on Kansas 3rd District: Because Kevin Yoder supports federal funding of human cloning research, I can’t support him in the Republican primary.

Martin Hawver on unsigned abortion bill

The bill, passed to the governor by the state Senate just minutes before it adjourned the main portion of the 2009 legislative session, would require more specific information about late-term abortions. The specific requirement is that abortion providers diagnose-for the public record-exactly what life-threatening or life-changing malady a post-22 week abortion is performed to cure.

It also broadens the possibility of lawsuits against abortion providers-which essentially will insert the issue of abortion, not just who is “toughest” on crime, into every Kansas county and district attorney race on the ballot if the bill becomes law.
