.- Fr. Frank Pavone, head of the group Priests for Life praised Kansas attorney general Phill Kline yesterday for his bold efforts to keep the state from funding what he sees as unconstitutional abortions. Kline filed a lawsuit in the Shawnee County district court which names Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius, a proclaimed Catholic, along with other state officials, in an effort to put the brakes on state funded abortions for Medicaid recipients.

Kline contends that the state is violating the section of the Kansas State Constitution which bans the destruction of the lives of men without due process. In this case, he says, “men” should be interpreted as all humans in any life stage.

Fr. Pavone commented that, "The Attorney General is doing the right thing. We don't help the poor by helping them kill their children. Moreover, there is no known disease that abortion has ever cured."

The AP reported State Medicaid Director Scott Brunner as saying that from October of last year until last week, the state has paid some 19 hundred dollars for seven Medicaid-related abortions.
