An important victory for Kansas

While Kansas is a pretty conservative state, we have one of the most brazen butchers in the national abortion industry, "Dr." George Tiller in Wichita. He is an infanticidal maniac, straight up. Check out this video to see a recent interview with Tiller. It's chilling.

A member of our church, Lance Kinzer, is in the Kansas House and personally wrote/sponsored the recent bill that passed by a wide margin. Basically Kinzer's bill shores up the enforcement of existing laws the country's late-term abortion king, George Tiller, is now able to skirt in his never ending mission to kill'em all. The bill also adds some provisions that ensure a woman is not coerced in to abortion. Here's the report from "Medical News Today", there is also a link to the bill itself :

Kansas House Approves Bill That Includes Abortion-Related Provision

The Kansas House on Tuesday voted 84-40 to approve a bill (Link:HB 2736) that includes a number of abortion-related provisions, the AP/Kansas City Star reports. The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration (AP/Kansas City Star, 3/18).Under the bill, women seeking abortions after the 21st week of pregnancy would have to be given information about no-cost counseling and no-cost prenatal services. Women would be given the option to see an ultrasound image and to ask the physician about the procedure at least 30 minutes before the abortion is performed. The Kansas State Board of Healing Arts would be required to revoke the medical licenses of physicians who break the law, and the measure would allow a district or county attorney, as well as the attorney general, to prosecute violations. The bill would allow a group of 10 or more Kansans to sue the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and force it to provide information required by law on abortions performed after the 21st week of pregnancy. Lawmakers dropped a provision in the measure that would have required physicians who perform abortions after the 21st week of pregnancy to provide the state with information about the women undergoing the procedure (Daily Women's Health Policy Report, 3/13). The bill also would require doctors performing an abortion after the 21st week of pregnancy to give the woman copies of documents that state the reason for the abortion and whether it is required to prevent considerable and irreversible damage to a major bodily function. Under the law, minors seeking abortions would be required to provide identification and proof of state residency, the AP/Lawrence Journal-World reports. The person accompanying the minor also must provide identification, sign a statement about their relationship to the minor and identify the father of the fetus if possible, the AP/Journal-World reports. The bill also outlines the steps a minor must take to obtain a judicial waiver for an abortion. In addition, the measure allows a woman who had an abortion after the 21st week of pregnancy, her husband if he is the father, or her parents if she is a minor, to sue for monetary damages if a physician violates the law, the AP/Journal-World reports (Manning, AP/Lawrence Journal-World, 3/18). The bill also would require clinics that provide abortions to post signs informing women that they cannot be forced into having the procedure, the Wichita Eagle reports. The bill "addresses, in a moderate way, enforcement" of abortion, Kathy Ostrowski, legislative director for the antiabortion group Kansans for Life, said (Koranda, Wichita Eagle, 3/18). "Many times, women don't know the justification for an abortion unless they seek their medical records," Kinzer said. He also said that many women are coerced by parents or others to seek an abortion, adding, "The time to ensure women in the state don't face coercive abortions is now."

When this evil man of mass infanticide stands before the Lord and faces punishment for the thousands of murders he will be charged with, we can be sure of one thing, he will fall down, bowing before the Name that is above all other Names! And when he cries out for mercy, the voice from the Lord will be loud and clear. The millstone tied around his neck will be so huge, no bottom of any sea will ever hide him from the depth of his eternal torment. God Bless Lance for his stand for life!

Well-done Lance, for your bill and efforts in the Kansas House and praise God for placing men like you on the front lines to put an end to this holocaust as the old Talmudic saying goes, "He, who saves a life, saves the world."
