Kansas - More attacks on women by the state.

I posted this in GD for greater visibility to DU as to what is going on ... and also for Kansans that might want to attend.

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Kansas and Mid-Missouri

The Kansas Legislature is at it again!

Join us next Wednesday for a hearing on HB 2253 -- the "Omnibus Bill" This bill is a monster in every sense of the word. Among other provisions, it would mandate physicians provide medically inaccurate information to patients, including that abortion is linked to breast cancer, EVEN THOUGH medical authorities have repeatedly refuted such a claim.

(Planned Parenthood email excerpt)

For the past two years, Governor Brownback has signed laws attempting to strip Planned Parenthood of Federal Title X funds used to provide a range of reproductive and life-saving health care services. Last year, Governor Brownback signed a law that allows your doctor or pharmacist to deny you birth control.

The attacks aren’t slowing down. Weeks into the 2013 Legislative Session, they’re at it again.

On the docket this session is more than 90 pages of anti-abortion legislation. Next Wednesday, February 20, there will be a hearing on one of those bills – HB 2253, the 70-page “Omnibus Bill.”

This massive bill creates more than 12 new taxes on women and families in Kansas and has more than 40 provisions, including:

1) Creates a “personhood trigger.” This means that if the Supreme Court gives the power to decide the legality of abortion to the states, abortion and certain forms of birth control will be automatically and immediately illegal in Kansas. No exceptions.

2) Requires physicians to provide medically inaccurate information to patients, including “abortion causes breast cancer and future miscarriages,” even though both claims have been proven false by every credible medical authority.

3) Creates a sales tax on abortion and on insurance plans that include abortion coverage.

Planned Parenthood believes that a woman, in consultation with her family, her faith and her health care provider – NOT politicians – should make her own health care decisions. We believe that all people should have access to affordable, quality health care, and we believe that Kansas women and families – not Governor Brownback or the Kansas Legislature – must have the freedom, knowledge and opportunity to make their own health care decisions.

1. Sam Brownbeck. Kansas born, raised, and educated.

He is 100% a product of the Kansas environment.

Good luck fighting him.

2. Without sounding too negative toward Kansas, sometimes I say to myself, is

this what the majority of Kansans really do do want? More and more teabagger types keep getting voted into office, and the last election about all moderate republicans were voted out. It's strange, really strange. And Brownback has been around in Kansas politics for a long time and keeps getting voted in and in again. Surely people must know what he's about by now and those of his ilk. If Kansans didn't want this type of stuff wouldn't they have stopped voting these people into office ...

Also, I wonder how many Kansans know the RW'ers are working on taking over all of the judge slots as best they can ... Judges are voted in now and many don't bother to vote, hence a determined core effort can get the judges in they want, probably ... also, there used to be a review of judges in Kansas for how good they were, what they were about, etc. ... that's been eliminated by the state.

It all gets really really strange. And TPTB in Kansas believe this is what all of America wants ... and they have a lot of money backing them with the Koch Brothers.

3. Sam Brownbeck. Even the name sounds like a character

that Sinclair Lewis would have named and given a prominent role in any of his fiction.

5. Rumor is he's making a major run for president again in 2016, and he will have tons of money

backing him probably with the Koch Brother RW political machine.

6. They should just change the state flag to a picture of a fetus

Clearly the cult of fetus worship and sex-hatred has taken over the state. One wonders why, but maybe they just don't have anything better to do.

7. We were just talking about that here ... one person mentioned it might be

because of the naivety of many in the state, how sparsely populated many areas are and how religious some are ... and the RW plays all of these push-buttons. Also, many of the politicians are RWNJs. It's a bad combination all the way around, plus the Koch Brothers are in Kansas, fund this RW crap and basically own the state.

Ha, then another more outspoken person sad, well, it's because the people are so fucken stupid.

It's time for another book about Kansas, I think.
