Abortion supporters have black-robed friends in KS

In 2011, Kansas District Judge Franklin Theis ruled that a law banning telemed abortions, providing abortion drugs for women they communicate with from remote distances via video conferences.

The Center for Reproductive Rights, a pro-abortion organization, filed that lawsuit and sued over two other telemed bans passed by the legislature, including the latest in 2018.

Mary Kay Culp of Kansans for Life says Judge Franklin is acting as an "apologist" for the abortion industry as if he allowed the Center to "write" his ruling.

The judge also sat on the law for seven years before issuing his written opinion.

This also held up the attempt by the Board of Healing Arts to strip abortionist Kirstin Neuhaus of her medical license, some the board finally accomplished.

Another problematic judge is Larry Hendricks.

"We passed a law to ban dismemberment abortions, where the abortion happens by the baby being dismembered to death," Culp recalls, "and then again that judge also let the Center for Reproductive Rights write his ruling, and in that case said, Oh, the 1859 Kansas Constitution includes a right to abortion."

The subject of abortion was never addressed in the document and the decision has been appealed to the Kansas Supreme Court which held its hearing nearly two years ago.

Culp says the two judges are like sentries standing at abortion clinic entrances to protect all of them.
