Posted on 04/26/2019 12:03:02 PM PDT by detective
Today, in a 6-1 decision, the Kansas Supreme Court held in Hodes & Nauser v. Schmidt, that the state constitution guarantees a right to abortion.
The named plaintiffs, Herbert Hodes and his daughter Traci Nauser, are two late-term abortionists who challenged Kansas ban on live dismemberment abortionsabortions which cause death by ripping the limbs and torso off of a fetus. Over the last several years, federal courts have declared similar bans on dismemberment abortions unconstitutional, but todays decision is significant because, unlike other cases, it is based on a state constitutional right to abortion.

This right allows a woman to make her own decisions regarding her body, health, family formation, and family lifedecisions that can include whether to continue a pregnancy. Although not absolute, this right is fundamental. Accordingly, the State is prohibited from restricting this right unless it is doing so to further a compelling government interest and in a way that is narrowly tailored to that interest.
After concluding that the Kansas constitution guarantees a right to an abortion, the state Supreme Court remanded the case for a determination of whether the Kansas Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act violates the newly defined constitutional right.
Using that same logic, any law that prohibited infanticide would also violate the Kansas State Constitution.
What is needed is a declaration by the Supreme Court that these babies are individuals guaranteed due process and civil liberties . This murder will be stopped.
Kill, kill, kill. That's all the leftists and jihadists know.
This is what any contemporary law school requires it graduates to believe...
Kansas became a state in 1861.
I’m sure that the people who wrote their state constitution never intended that women be able to chop-up their late term babies.
No - they did - IN WORD.
Infanticide is legal and a right.
Evil has come to our nation.
This right allows a woman to make her own decisions regarding her body, health, family formation, and family lifedecisions that can include whether to continue a pregnancy. Although not absolute, this right is fundamental
But don’t you DARE try to make your own Decisions regarding your Body when it comes to Drugs, legal or not!!!
The stinking skank Kathleen Sebelius appointed four of the Justices in the majority. RINO Bill Graves appointed the other two.
The dissenting opinion was by the One Justice that Sam Brownback appointed. The dissent is masterful. It’s sad that Kansas put idiot Governors in a position to appoint Justices who would allow this to happen.
That also goes for suicide....His/Her Body - His/Her Life - His/Her Choice
The Kansas GOP has a super majority in both houses of the legislature. 84-41 in the House and 28-1 in the Senate. They have the votes to put a Constitutional Amendment on the ballot to overturn this trash, IF the RINOs (there are a lot of RINOs in Kansas) can be reigned in.
God have mercy on their souls.
The judges make an outrageous political ruling; they can be deposed by a political process.
“Bleedin” Kansas is back.
There are overly educated, smarmy, insulated-from-reality leftists all over the nation. As this asinine decision proves.

Today I am deeply embarrassed to be a Kansan where people have a right to murder their children.
To show how WACKO these liberals really are, yesterday had heard that in Maryland a woman checked into a hospital, covered in blood and claimed she had just stillborne a baby.
While working on her, they sent the authorities to her home where they discovered blood all over the bedroom, bathroom and through the house.
A further check found a newborn body, in a bag, in a plastic bound bag and hidden in a room.
They arrested her for murder.
I agree with the call BUT taking their stance on abortion, what difference is it if she could have induced a miscarriage or just aborted the baby late term?
They also found data on her computer how she was trying to end the pregnacy prior birthing...
The WORST part is the newsreaders etal expressing sorrow and dismay over how cruel she was etc while not even batting an eye over the VA Gov & NY pols cheering while
legislation being passed/approved over the ‘let it be born, comfort it and kill it if deemed necessary’..
Like Chris Plante is want to say, if not for double standards, libs would have no standards at all.
Im guessing this is a court appointed by Kathleen Sebelius. A more vile and evil woman you will not find.
The Great Plains states are the worst for judicial tyranny. Oklahoma courts routinely rule constitutional amendments unconstitutional.
