Thank you Pearson, We now have over 3,000 signatures. We have 16 days to go.Pitch was kind enough to post our flier. To help out you need only to call 913-710-8078 Bob Schmidt, is my petition drive coordinator. He will get you all set up.

Volunteers are welcome and anyone needing a job as well.

My position on abortion is posted on our website at:

http://www.waynebriscoeforusco...

Abortion is an issue that has polarized the State of Kansas and the Nation for 37 years.

This is not an easy issue to address so before you stop reading, thinking I am one way or another on the issue please read the entire position statement. For background:

In the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a woman, in consultation with her physician, has a constitutionally protected right to choose abortion in the early stages of pregnancy�that is, before viability. In 1992, the Court upheld the basic right to abortion in Planned Parenthood v. Casey. However, it also expanded the ability of the states to enact all but the most extreme restrictions on women�s access to abortion. The most common restrictions in effect are parental notification or consent requirements for minors, state-sponsored counseling, waiting periods, and limitations on public funding.

In Kansas, the following restrictions on abortion were in effect as of January 2008:

�The parent of a minor must be notified before an abortion is provided.
�A woman must receive state directed counseling that includes information designed to discourage her from having an abortion and then wait 24 hours prior to the procedure being provided.
�Public funding is available for abortion only in cases of life endangerment, rape or incest.
This is the law as it stands now.

Recently, May 3, 2010 the Kansas House of Representatives voted 86-35 to override Gov. Mark Parkinson�s veto of reporting regulations that will add a layer of accountability to late-term abortions by requiring them to report the specific diagnosis used to justify post viability abortions. Four House members abstained from the vote.
This pro-life victory sends the bill on to the Senate where 27 votes are needed to successfully complete the override. The Senate passed HB 2115, which had wide popular support, by a margin of 24-15, three votes shy of the two-thirds majority needed to override.

My position is this: If the State of Kansas wants to engage in debating and legislating the issue, it is within their scope to do so. The will of the people, through their elected representatives, may amend the Rulings of Supreme Court up to the point where the Supreme Court has to rule again to decide the outcome. As a US Congressman, I believe that the only way that I can justify any action by the Federal Government on this issue is by a Constitutional Amendment to override the decision of the Supreme Court and it must then be ratified by the States for abortion to be abolished. Anything less will be struck down by the Supreme Court.

If I were to vote on whether or not the Constitutional Amendment should be sent for ratification I would vote yes.

The people that are working for my campaign need jobs due to the current economic climate. How many jobs has any of the Republican or Democrats provided for those who are out of work? I am guessing none.

You are absolutely right Alan. It can be very agonizing to try to get on the ballot as an Independent. The system is designed to be that way. It was after all designed by Democrats and Republicans and was probably the last thing they ever agreed upon. They do not seek freedom of choice unless the choice is one of their own. They do not want to see competition in the political process as it diminishes their power. We will clock many hours to obtain a place on the ballot and will have worked very hard to get there. Unlike the Democrats and the Republicans who only have to pay a small fee.
When we are successful, it will be worth every minute and every signature is appreciated and highly valued. When good people are willing to step up and make the process work it works for all of us. Whether they are canvassers or signers on the petition they make a statement not unlike our forefathers when they signed the Declaration of Independence. They said that Americans deserve the Freedom to choose their elected officials when they sign the petition. Our grass roots efforts will hopefully inspire others.
