KS judge cozy with abortion supporters

gavel with stethoscopeA pro-life group is calling out the judicial system in Kansas for its abortion-supporting judges.

Kansas has passed several laws banning telemed abortions, in 2011, 2015 and 2018, and all are predictably facing lawsuits.

Shawnee Country District Court Judge Franklin Theis handled each of the cases and his most recent ruling overturned the ban.

Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says the national group supports the ban because medical abortion pills are dispensed without face-to-face contact between a doctor and the patient.

Sullenger, Cheryl"And when something goes wrong, which it does five percent of the time in these medication abortions," she says, "then the women have to just figure out how to deal with it on their own, and we think it's just too dangerous of a situation."

Twenty-two women have died to date and many more have had to seek emergency help.

Sullenger says abortion supporters know whose courtroom to use to win a court decision.

"The fact that Judge Theis, in his county courtroom up in Shawnee County," complains Sullenger, "can hear every abortion case that comes up in the state, and has the authority to overturn the will of three different legislatures and two different governors, and the will of the people of the state of Kansas --- it's unconscionable."
