Dear Editor:

In last year's election Governor Brownback ran on lower taxes, less government and jobs. Now the governor says he is creating "a culture of life."

Dear Editor:
In last year's election Governor Brownback ran on lower taxes, less government and jobs. Now the governor says he is creating "a culture of life."

The state will require annual unannounced inspections of abortion clinics, but in the home where I live for the endangered species, old people, they will still announce inspections. Perhaps we aren’t part of "a culture of life."

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment will write standards for exits, lighting, bathrooms and equipment. The KDHE would issue annual licenses, have the power to fine clinics and could go to court to shut them down.

That isn't "less government" and it doesn't provide private sector "jobs", just more government jobs. The governor doesn't like abortions and I don't like them either, but unfortunately they are legal.

The Legislature passed a law requiring sonograms and requires doctors to read statements, written by the legislature, to women seeking abortions. The governor denounced Obamacare because it would come between patients and their doctors.

They aren't able to stop abortions legally so they use the power of government. Gov. Brownback believes in smaller government except when he believes in larger government. God gave us all a free will and he will judge us according to how we exercise it.

Some dislike government intrusion in their lives, but don’t mind it in everyone else’s, but we have freedom or we do not. If not our Declaration of Independence is bogus. I'm not advocating for abortion, but I am advocating for freedom.
