    Wichita, KS — Sedgwick County commissioners voted 4-1 on Wednesday to approve a recommendation to limit abortions as non-essential procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic. The vote came after pro-life activists made the commissioners aware that women from several states, including Louisiana – a COVID-19 hot spot – were flocking to the Trust Women Wichita abortion business for elective abortions. That recommendation will now be passed on to chief county health officer Dr. Garold Minns, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and Gov. Laura Kelly. Yesterday, in response to questions at a news conference about the Sedgwick County action aimed...

    A Kansas abortion facility may be putting a huge number of people’s lives in danger by contributing to the spread of the coronavirus. KSNW News reports the commissioners of Sedgwick County are considering what to do about the problems at Trust Women Wichita, an abortion facility that has been busy with out-of-state abortion patients since the coronavirus crisis broke. “This past weekend the Governor of Oklahoma said that abortions were not considered essential services,” Commissioner Michael O’Donnell said. “So what’s happened is, all these individuals are coming from Oklahoma to Kansas to have their abortions. That just creates an obvious...

    Kansas City and its surrounding counties will be subject to a stay-at-home order effective Tuesday morning in an effort to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, Mayor Quinton Lucas announced Saturday.

After 30 days, the jurisdictions will consider whether to extend the order. Trips to essential businesses such as grocery stores, pharmacies, hardware stores, doctors’ offices, dry cleaners, laundromats,...

    Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly announced Tuesday that all public schools will be closed for the remainder of the school year and classes will be held remotely. While at least 70 percent of all public schools have shut their doors in response to the coronavirus pandemic, Kansas is the first to announce such a sweeping response. However, many states have floated the possibility of schools remaining closed for the rest of the academic year. Many universities have already announced plans to hold classes remotely for the rest of the spring semester. “I am ordering all K-12 to close and cease in-person...
  • Supreme Court Gives States Greater Rights to Prosecute Undocumented Immigrants. Justices split over the case, which concerns identity theft by undocumented immigrants who provide false social security numbers on job applications

    A divided Supreme Court on Tuesday boosted the ability of states to prosecute undocumented immigrants for identity theft when they provide false social security numbers or other information on job applications. The court, in a 5-4 opinion by Justice Samuel Alito, reinstated convictions obtained by Kansas prosecutors against three restaurant workers for using other people’s social security numbers on forms given to their employers. The central question in the case, Kansas v. Garcia, was whether such state prosecutions were barred by a provision of federal immigration law that says any information submitted with federal work-authorization forms can’t be used for...

    U.S. District Court Judge Carlos Murguia will resign from the bench effective April 1, 2020. In a resignation letter addressed to President Trump, Murguia wrote, “I have been honored to serve in this position since 1999, and my tenure on the Court has been the highlight of my professional life. In recent months, it has become clear that I can no longer effectively serve the Court in this capacity.” Murguia, a native of Kansas City, Kansas, was publicly reprimanded Sept. 30, 2019, by the Judicial Council of the Tenth Circuit. The Council found that Murguia “gave preferential treatment and unwanted...

We stand in defense of Christian values, strong families, closed borders, the American worker, and the preservation of tradition.”

  • Bob Dole makes Senate endorsement as GOP scrambles to block Kris Kobach

    Former GOP senator and 1996 presidential nominee Bob Dole, 96, endorsed Rep. Roger Marshall for Senate as the GOP establishment coalesced around the congressman following Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's decision not to run this year. The endorsement of Dole, 96, came a week after Pompeo, a former Kansas congressman, told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that he planned to continue in President Trump's cabinet. McConnell and his leadership deputies recruited Pompeo in a bid to block Kris Kobach from the nomination, worrying the immigration hawk was too provocative to win a general election in otherwise deep-red Kansas. With Pompeo...
  • 'Designed by clowns': Boeing employees ridicule 737 MAX, regulators in internal messages

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Boeing Co has released hundreds of internal messages that contained harshly critical comments about the development of the 737 MAX, including one that said the plane was “designed by clowns who in turn are supervised by monkeys”. The messages, disclosed on Thursday, show attempts to duck regulatory scrutiny with employees disparaging the plane, the company, the Federal Aviation Administration and foreign aviation regulators. In an instant messaging exchange on Feb. 8, 2018 - when the plane was in the air and eight months before the first of two fatal crashes, an employee asks another: “Would you put...

Kansans for Life is not surprised that the governor chose someone as a Supreme Court Justice who supports her vision for unlimited abortion in the state. This is yet another reason why we need to amend the Kansas Constitution, and ensure that women and their babies can be protected by reasonable regulations on the abortion industry.
