After roughly a million dollars in TV and radio ads plus a blizzard of postcards, the Kansas Supreme Court didn't change one bit with Tuesday's elections.

With a majority of precincts reporting, all four of the justices who had been targeted by the Republican Party, Kansans for Life and other conservative groups comfortably won retention.

New campaign finance reports are calling into question Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s insistence that he’s not involved in an effort to oust several Kansas Supreme Court justices.

Reports filed this week show that Brownback’s Road Map PAC contributed $65,000 to Kansans for Life in September and October, bringing the total since the first of the year to $110,300.

Groups Renew Effort To Rezone Land Near Abortion Provider

Aug 13, 2013

Abortion opponents are redoubling their efforts in Wichita to use zoning laws to drive out a clinic that provides abortions.

Representatives from four groups will ask Wichita's City Council Tuesday to rezone the neighborhood around the South Wind Women's Center to ban abortions.

Speakers from Kansans for Life, Operation Rescue, World of Life Church and the Kansas Coalition for Life are on the council agenda.

The city planning commission rejected a similar effort to rezone the building earlier this year.

Brownback Resisting 'Fetal Heartbeat' Abortion Measure

Jul 31, 2013

Gov. Sam Brownback and Republican legislative leaders are resisting a group's effort to include an "fetal heartbeat" abortion measure on the agenda for legislators in September.

Gov. Brownback is calling lawmakers into special session on September 3 to rewrite the state's "Hard 50" criminal sentencing law.

In June, two different lawsuits were filed in Kansas over a new state abortion law. But the lawsuit that Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri filed on June 20 isn't about the freedom to perform abortions. It’s about freedom of speech.
