Kansas Supreme Court Rules Rights to ‘Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness’ Include ‘Right’ to Abortion



By Heather Clark - Posted at Christian News Network:

TOPEKA, Kan. — The Supreme Court of Kansas has ruled that the rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” in the state Constitution’s Bill of Rights encompass a woman’s “right” to an abortion.

“We conclude that, through the language in section 1, the state’s founders acknowledged that the people had rights that pre-existed the formation of the Kansas government. There they listed several of these natural, inalienable rights …,” the court wrote in its opinion, released on Friday. “Included in that limited category is the right of personal autonomy, which includes the ability to control one’s own body, to assert bodily integrity, and to exercise self-determination.”

“This right allows a woman to make her own decisions regarding her body, health, family formation, and family life — decisions that can include whether to continue a pregnancy. Although not absolute, this right is fundamental,” it asserted. “Accordingly, the State is prohibited from restricting this right unless it is doing so to further a compelling government interest and in a way that is narrowly tailored to that interest.”

So blow the winds of our time. If you’re a Christian who affirms what the historic Christian faith has to say about the killing of an unborn child, you’ve probably had an encounter like the one above. You’ve probably been told that you just need to try and empathize more with the suffering mothers, and then you would see that the issue isn’t as black and white as your bigotry has l

This is what Ohio and six other states voted for and celebrate

 By Nancy Flanders - Posted at LiveAction: Earlier this month, Ohio voted to enshrine abortion as a “right” in its state constitution. Six other states have done likewise in the last year, including California, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Montana, and Vermont. Killing children in the womb at any point in pregnancy is now a protected action in these states. To accomplish this, abortion proponents had to convince the majority of voters that women have a “right” to dead children, and they had to erase the casualties of that “right” entirely. Erasing the primary victim is easy in the abortion debate. These victims can’t march down streets carrying posters and chanting for their equal rights — because they’re dead. They were killed without the opportunity to even cry out. Their bodies were then buried — not in proper graves, but hidden and disposed of in medical waste facilities, dumpsters, and the sewer system after being brutally suctioned, dismembered, or injected with lethal drugs.
