Georgia's Kemp Mocks 'C-List Celebrities'

Over the weekend, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp mocked "C-list celebrities" over their threats to boycott the state for signing a so-called "heartbeat bill" into law. The pro-life legislation protects the unborn from abortion when they have a detectable heartbeat, which is around six weeks gestation.

And Kemp is not exactly impressed with the boycott — or those involved, mocking them as "C-list." <B><a href="">Read more...</A></B></p>

Kansas Constitution Provides Abortion 'Rights,' Court Rules

The Kansas Supreme Court blocked a law that would have banned the most commonly used procedure for second-trimester abortions, arguing that the state Constitution protected the right of women to "decide whether to continue a pregnancy." The court sided in a 6-1 majority with the plaintiffs in the case, two physicians who performed the procedure, in a sweeping ruling that opens the door for abortion rights activists to challenge a series of other restrictions that the state's Republican-controlled Legislature has enacted.
