Editor’s note. On Wednesday National Right to Life News Today ran a story which explained why it costs money to defend pro-life legislation: pro-abortionists challenge virtually every law. (See “Court defense for Kansas pro-life laws expensive? That’s because pro-abortionists challenge nearly every law!”)
The story was about Kansas but it could apply to any state and any pro-life legislation. The following letter to the editor was “in response to the AP story concerning how much money the Kansas Attorney General’s office is spending defending legislation about abortion.”
Letter to the Editor
“The doctor lacked personal hygiene. His hair was messy, hands dirty, and clothing was wrinkled and stained.”
“There were dirty dishes in the sink and on the tabletop, trash everywhere, and roaches crawling across the countertops. There was an unfamiliar type stench in the room. On the way out my partner observed that the ‘procedure room’ was filthy.”
“(The doctor) was a filthy man who did not properly sterilize his equipment.”
“This general lack of a sanitary and professional environment starkly contrasted with all my experience inside other doctor’s offices.”
These are just some of the quotes from a police officer who was investigating a theft at an abortion clinic in Kansas City, Kansas. The officer said he shared this information with the Board of Healing Arts and was told “numerous complaints had been made about the clinic, but no laws have been violated.”
Another abortionist, after an investigation, was labeled by the Board of Healing Arts as a “danger to the public.”
After these revelations, and many more, the Kansas Legislature passed a Clinic Licensing Law to require abortion clinics to abide by the same regulations as every other medical / surgical center.
This law was challenged by the abortion industry and the State of Kansas has hired private firms to help defend the Kansas Laws.
I think it is worth every penny of the $913,000 spent so far by the State of Kansas, to protect women and to eliminate filthy and unsanitary conditions at abortion clinics.
The State of Kansas is also defending the Legislature’s right to allocate funding where they see fit. In this circumstance, the Legislature decided to prioritize funding to County Health Clinics, which do not perform abortions but provide a wide range of medical assistance to the public. The abortion industry is outraged that they may lose public taxpayer funding, but I’m sure the people of Kansas do not want their tax money subsidizing the abortion industry.
Thank you, Attorney General, for fighting for the people of Kansas, for protecting women, and for defending the Legislature’s Constitutional right to send taxpayer money where they see fit.
