Kansas – The Epicenter in the Battle for Life
This page provides links to stories that will help you to understand 21st century Bleeding Kansas. Kansas, as a territory, became known to the nation in the 1850’s as “Bleeding Kansas” during a time that abolitionist and pro-slave forces engaged in guerilla warfare in an effort to usher Kansas into the union as either a slave or free state.
The abolitionists prevailed in Kansas in the 1850’s and Kansas entered the union as a free state in 1861. The battle in Kansas, President Lincoln’s role in supporting the Kansas free state cause and subsequent election as President of the United States served as a precursor to the American Civil War.
Today, Kansas is again a battleground over whether our nation will live up to its promise to respect the dignity of all human life. Kansas is the center of our nation’s abortion wars.
Former Kansas Attorney General and current District Attorney Phill Kline, in an effort to perform his duty and enforce the law, became the first prosecutor in United States history to charge Planned Parenthood with criminal activity. If Kline prevails in his case, Planned Parenthood could lose $350 million plus of annual federal taxpayer funding. Kline also became the first prosecutor ever to obtain copies of abortion records from abortion clinics.
Mr. Kline also led and investigation that resulted in criminal charges against notorious late-term abortionist George Tiller of Wichita. Mr. Tiller is one of the few in the nation who will perform abortions on healthy viable children up to the moment of birth even when the mother is not in threat of any physical injury if the pregnancy continued to term.
For his efforts, Mr. Kline has been maliciously attacked by millions of dollars of abortion monies, abortion rights supporter Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, named a “domestic terrorist” by Planned Parenthood and repeatedly maligned by the two major daily and sister newspapers in Kansas the Kansas City Star and Wichita Eagle.
Efforts to communicate the truth about Mr. Kline’s investigation and prosecution to Kansans has been stymied by the profound media bias and deception by these two daily newspapers. Unlike most media markets in the nation – Kansas media is controlled by very few reporters and editors and they have kept Kansans ignorant of the truth.
The links on this page are an effort to get out some of the truth regarding the investigation and the prolonged battle in Kansas that national columnist Bob Novak calls “the fiercest state battle ground in the abortion war.”
