Kansas' war on abortion providers has been in the news a lot lately. Since trying to ban abortion through legislation is bound to fail, Kansas has found a round-about way to deny clinics their licenses based on stringent new regulations that involve the size of rooms, the type of lighting used, and other structural changes. By giving these clinics only a few days to implement these changes, Kansas lawmakers are hoping to effectively stop abortion by getting rid of abortion providers. If it was so appalling, I might even be a little impressed with the ingenuity of these new attacks.
Rachel Maddow has two great segments on the situation (hat tip to Sarah):
Another reason I'm glad I don't live in Kansas. But in all seriousness, what is up with the abortion stuff lately? It's out of control. I posted on the various state efforts to control/ban abortion back in March, but it doesn't seem to be letting up anytime soon. What a shame. Another example of how the saying "limited government" is hollow.
