TOPEKA, Kan. – Governor Sam Brownback held a rare press conference Friday in Topeka.
One of the topics he discussed was abortion, and his decision to order the state to inspect all clinics in the state.
The governor Friday said again he wants an investigation into planned parenthood.
He also talked at length about the budget and how he has to cut it by another $50 million, though he did not say specifically what he plans to cut.
The governor also wanted to talk about Planned Parenthood and the controversial video that allegedly showed the organization’s leaders in another state talking about fetal tissue.
Brownback says he does not have any direct evidence that planned Parenthood Parenthood could be selling fetal tissue, but he nonetheless wants it investigated.
“To protect the sanctity of the life of the unborn, i have asked the Kansas Board of Healing Arts to include in their inspections any Kansas facilities involveed in the barbaric practice of selling tissues from children who are aborted,” said Brownback.
He also said he wants members of the Kansas National Guard to be armed in light of several armed attacks on military in the past year and a half.
As for what gets cut out of the budget when it is trimmed by another $50 million, the governor says he will let us know what gets chopped late next week.
