Both sides of the abortion agenda poor oodles and oodles of money into kansas; all campaigns. Kansas is where the big abortion fights play out.
Well the story is recent - post Tiller death and it's MSNBC but what I figured you would be able to get from it is how huge and all encompassing the abortion fight is in Kansas for all sides. Guess not.The story then goes on to say that this guy, Kline, went after Tiller with everything he had, but was unsuccessful in getting any convictions.
You keep saying in all your posts that Tiller had all this politic pull and manipulated the system. However the story you linked to seems to indicate the opposite. Tiller was the underdog. The pro-lifer's had the power, with the exception of the Governor--thank goodness for checks and balances, eh?
So, when all the political muscle and money could not stop Tiller, someone took matters into his own hands. Great.
What would happen if people started doing that on any issue where they didn't get what they wanted?
meh, if they could get him on anything they would have.
If what he said about the records was a lie they could call him on it, or have the records reviewed by others. But nope. They didn't.
why not? That's the question.
Am I to believe that the only folks to ever see these redacted records and what was contained there in are Tiller and McHugh?
Please. They were evidence in a case.
Actually, this was the line that stood out for me:
I guess the extremist on the pro-choice side would be Tiller. I'll agree with that. He pushed the legal/ethical boundary."There's a very prominent vein in Kansas politics that tends toward moral righteousness," said Kansas State University political scientist Joe Aistrup. That contributes to the unending abortion battle: "It's an unsettled debate that produces extremists on both sides."
You should rent a movie called Citizen Ruth.-- Great dark comedy portrayal of Pro-lifers and pro-choice folks.
Also, the question I asked in the previous post:
What would happen if every time we were disappointed or angry about the outcome of an election or a court case, we went out forced our will and beliefs on the world the way Scott Roeder did?
Time zones are a bastard, it will take me an hour to catch up
