What’s the Matter With Kansas?

Another anti-abortion law is being considered, and their retrograde theocrat governor Sam Brownback indicates he will sign it. So what else is new about it:

The latest bill — which is scheduled to be discussed by a legislative committee for a second time on Wednesday — contains a number of provisions which would give the state one of the most sweeping anti-abortion laws in the nation. Among the provisions is one which would exempt doctors from malpractice suits if they withhold information — in order to prevent an abortion — that could have prevented a health problem for the mother or child. A wrongful death suit could be filed in the event of the death of the mother.

Other provisions include requiring women to hear the fetal heartbeat prior to an abortion, taking away tax credits for abortion providers and removing tax deductions for abortion-related insurance. The bill also requires that women be told that abortions would increase the risk of breast cancer, a controversial theory that the World Health Organization, the National Cancer Institute and gynecological groups in the United States and the United Kingdom have said is incorrect.

So immunity for Wingnuttian doctors and codifying lying to their patients?

    Way to go Kansas! Soon your doctors will have reputations no better than used car salesman. That will kill much of that elitist doctor crap, as well as many patients.

    What I hate is the lying and cruelty these people engage in, all for the sake of their supposedly loving Jesus. The only thing I can think of to say to them is “Fuck you and your Christianity.”

    ya know…
    These fuckers act like abortion is MANDATORY – nobody is FORCING anyone to have an abortion.

    And I guaran-damn-tee you that every one of these fuckers would get the abortion if it were THEIR wife/daughter/mother that was raped and as a result was carrying a child with a birth defect. (Or any other reason – such as: carrying the baby to term will kill the mother, hello, Rick Santorum.)

    An abortion is something that should be between the mother, her family, her doctor, and possibly her clergy.
    It is never anybody else’s business. ESPECIALLY THE GOVERNMENT

    PERIOD.
