Amidst all the ruckus in Kansas over tough new regulations for abortion clinics that may end up shutting the clinics down, pro-life Gov. Sam Brownback has appointed pro-life attorney Richard Macias to the State Board of Healing Arts, which is in charge of licensing for abortion doctors. In the past, the Board has been very lenient with abortionists, and so this is a step in the right direction to reign in their bloody business:
In the past, abortion opponents have accused the Board of Healing Arts of being too lax in regulating doctors, particularly abortion providers. Anti-abortion groups were especially critical of the board when Democrat Kathleen Sebelius, an abortion-rights supporter, was governor in 2003-09.
State lawmakers adopted resolutions critical of the board in 2008 over multiple cases, leading to the resignation of its longtime executive director and legislation designed to improve the board’s oversight.
“Mr. Macias is a well-qualified and very respected attorney who will continue the reforms needed at the Board of Healing Arts,” said Brownback’s spokeswoman, Sherriene Jones-Sontag.
