“Equal rights. All men are possessed of equal and inalienable natural rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” reads the first right in our Kansas Constitution.
It is no coincidence that our founding fathers identified the first right as “life.” They recognized life as a sacred gift. Without life, there is no liberty. No pursuit of happiness. One’s liberty or pursuit of happiness should not infringe on another’s life.
But now life means death – at least for the unborn. Two late-term abortionists, Herbert Hodes and his daughter Traci Nauser challenged Kansas’s ban on dismemberment abortions which kills an unborn baby by ripping its limbs and body apart while the baby is alive. This is especially disconcerting as research by pro-abortionist scientists that discovered that unborn babies feel pain as early as 13 weeks was just published last week.
