    FULL TITLE: Kansans for Life announces opposition to pro-abortion and activist applicants for the Kansas Supreme Court The Kansas Supreme Court Nominating Commission is meeting this week to interview applicants for a seat on the Kansas Supreme Court. In the wake of the Kansas Supreme Court’s recent decision finding a right to abortion in the Kansas Constitution, it is clear that ideology matters when selecting a Justice to the Kansas Supreme Court. For this reason, Kansans for Life opposes Judges Melissa Standridge and Evelyn Wilson in their consideration for a seat on the Court. “Both of these applicants are extreme...

    San Francisco expanded its city-funded travel and contracting bans to 22 states with pro-life laws. The 22 states include Texas, Massachusetts, and Florida. The move marks the expansion of an ordinance enacted in August that prohibited city-funded travel "to states that have enacted laws that prohibit abortion prior to the viability of the fetus" and contracting with companies headquartered in those states. The ban initially covered eight states, according to Courthouse News, but that list has now expanded to cover nearly half the country. City supervisor Vallie Brown denounced pro-life reforms, such as late term abortion limits, as "an assault...

    A 12-year-old Kansas girl was arrested – as in, hauled out of school in handcuffs, charged with a crime, and was handed a court date – for making a “finger gun” and pointing it at fellow students. According to the Kansas City Star, police in Overland Park “hauled her out of school in handcuffs, arrested her and charged the child with a felony for threatening” after the middle-schooler pointed the “finger gun” at other students before pointing it at herself. Johnson County District Court documents obtained by the Kansas City Star claim the child “unlawfully and feloniously communicated a threat...

    The Iowa Republican Party is holding onto plans to have its traditional straw poll at the caucus in February to decide the Republican nominee in the bid for the White House. Still, local party leaders maintain that the party firmly supports President Trump. Muscatine County Republican chair Fred Grunder said the party is behind Trump, but there is likely to be a small number of protest votes at the caucus in 2020. “There are some people that I think they’re just trying to make a statement more than anything else,” he said. “If there’s 500 people that are at our...

    Republican officials in multiple states are on the verge of canceling their 2020 presidential primary elections in a show of support for President Donald Trump, even as some GOP candidates plan to challenge him. Party leaders in South Carolina, Nevada and Arizona have all expressed support for nixing their presidential primaries, and are expected to make it official over the coming weeks. Leaders of the South Carolina and Nevada Republican parties will each meet Saturday to reach a decision, while the Arizona GOP Executive Committee will discuss its decision at a Sept. 14 meeting.

    Full title: Kansas University faculty wants Chick-fil-A banned from campus for fears of 'safety,' 'mental well being' “The culture of Chick-fil-A fosters hate and discrimination on multiple levels,” the Sexuality & Gender Diversity Faculty and Staff Council wrote in a two-page letter, accusing university leaders of being "more concerned about money and corporate sponsorship than the physical, emotional, and mental well being of marginalized and LGBTQ people."

    If you thought LGBTQ activists in the University of Kansas faculty were mad before, wait till you see them now. Following years of demands that the taxpayer-funded institution discriminate against a vendor because of its founders’ religious beliefs, the KU administration actually gave its Chick-fil-A restaurant a better place on campus, The Kansas City Star reports. Before you assume this was a bold move in favor of viewpoint diversity and fair treatment, it actually fits your other stereotype of universities: that they do everything for financial reasons. KU’s 10-year contract with Chick-fil-A requires upgrades to its location in the basement...

    School is back in session folks, and the latest leftist lesson this semester is that if you enjoy a tasty, mouthwatering juicy chicken sandwich from Chick-Fil-A then you're a bigot. In fact, some professors at the University of Kansas feel so strongly that the Christian company is a hatemongering behemoth of evil, that they are demanding their school boycott and remove the sandwich chain from their campus. The Kansas City Star reports that Chick-Fil-A previously had a spot tucked away in the basement of an obscure building on campus. But, after a new contract, the eatery was moved to a...

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reversed course late Friday, agreeing to key union demands as nearly two-thirds of its research staff will leave the agency rather than move to new headquarters in the Kansas City area. The announcement follows a tumultuous few weeks at the USDA where employees were given a month to decide if they would uproot from D.C. by Sept. 30 or lose their jobs that same day. Employees at both the Economic Research Service (ERS) and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) — two of the major research wings within USDA — unionized in...

    Wichita, KS – A 911 call during a medical emergency at the Trust Women Wichita abortion facility last week revealed how much this facility was willing to put its own interests above a woman who was believed to be having a stroke. An employee of Trust Women, located in Wichita, Kansas, called 911 at 11:00 a.m. on July 31, 2019. Public 911 records obtained by Operation Rescue were heavily redacted but did reveal that a 45-year old woman was having sudden speech and loss of balance. Before the dispatcher could ask details of the woman’s condition, the Trust Women caller...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CN) — Building on a 2016 ban on city-funded travel to states with anti-LGBT laws, San Francisco officials Tuesday voted unanimously to extend that ban to states with restrictive abortion laws. “It will expand the existing ordinance to states that have waged war on our constitutionally protected right to an abortion,” San Francisco Supervisor Vallie Brown, who introduced the proposal, said at a board meeting Tuesday. Five states — Georgia, Louisiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Mississippi — passed laws this year that ban abortion after six weeks of pregnancy. Missouri also enacted a law banning abortions after eight weeks,...
