What's The Matter W/ Bloody Kansas?

Tragic Prelude, John Steuart Curry, 1939.
Inane ignoramus Gov. Brownback of Kansas spews more lies. (Our emphasis.)
“Most grievously, this legislation funnels more taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. From its infancy, the state of Kansas has affirmed the dignity and equality of each human life. I will not support this legislation that continues to fund organizations that undermine a culture of life.”
Yeah sure. Compare & contrast w/ actual history:
At the heart of the conflict was the question of whether Kansas would allow or outlaw slavery, and thus enter the Union as a slave state or a free state. Pro-slavery forces said every settler had the right to bring his own property, including slaves, into the territory. Anti-slavery "free soil" forces said the rich slaveholders would buy up all the good farmland and work it with black slaves, leaving little or no opportunity for non-slaveholders.
Vetoing expanded health insurance for the people of one's state certainly represents a "culture of life", doesn't it? Kee-rist, what an asshole!
