EXPLANATIONS OF VOTE
Mr. Speaker: I vote no on SCR 1617. President Eisenhower stated that those who ``pick
cotton and heal the sick and plant corn-all serve as proudly, and as profitably, for America
as the statesmen who draft treaties...''
The name of George Washington Glick is largely forgotten, as all of ours will be someday,
yet his work endures and is a tribute to our citizen legislature, where brick layers,
shopkeepers, and farmers gather each winter to build a better Kansas. It is difficult to
imagine the great and humble Dwight Eisenhower approving of a plan to remove another
person's statue to make room for his own.--Clark Shultz, Cindy Hermes, Lynn Jenkins
Mr. Speaker: I vote NO on SCR 1617. It is a sad and embarrassing day for our state
when the Kansas Legislature engages in partisan political efforts that alter the historical
archives of the United State Congressional Statuary Hall, for the purposes of responding to
whim of a U.S. Congressman.
Mr. Speaker, state and national politics have changed. Prior leaders in state and national
politics from Kansas that are now enshrined in various forms to honor their legacies, worked
on issues of substance and interest to our State's citizens. These same leaders surely must
be ashamed of our actions that desecrate the memory of others and history.--Doug
Spangler, Nancy A. Kirk, Bill Reardon, Margaret E. Long, Richard Alldritt

INTRODUCTION OF ORIGINAL MOTIONS AND HOUSE RESOLUTIONS
The following resolutions were introduced and read by title:
HOUSE RESOLUTION No. 6017--
By Representatives Pauls and Larkin, Aday, Boston, Dahl, Dean, Faber, Flower, Franklin,
Gregory, Hayzlett, Henry, Hutchins, Jennison, Phill Kline, M. Long, P. Long, Mayans,
Mays, McClure, Mollenkamp, Morrison, Myers, O'Connor, Osborne, Phelps, Powers,
Reardon, Shultz, Thimesch, Toplikar and Vickrey
A RESOLUTION requiring the attorney general to bring action to determine the
constitutionality of Kansas statutes, administrative orders and executive orders that allow
the termination, or the use of state funds or facilities in the termination, of the lives of
innocent human beings including the unborn.
WHEREAS, The constitution of Kansas provides for the basic organization of state
government, defines and limits the powers of the state and guarantees certain fundamental
rights to all men; and
WHEREAS, The Bill of Rights of the constitution is a declaration of the basic rights of
all men that may not be denied or infringed upon by the state or any local government; and
WHEREAS, The United States Supreme Court holds that the very purpose of a Bill of
Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from political debate, to place them beyond the
reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by
the courts. (See West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624, 638
WHEREAS, Section one of the Bill of Rights of the constitution of Kansas states that
``All men are possessed of equal and inalienable natural rights, among which are life, liberty,
and the pursuit of happiness.'' The right to life, logically enumerated first, is the basic, most
fundamental right without which all others are meaningless; and
WHEREAS, The term ``men'' is accepted to include adult males, women, and children,
in other word, all human beings; and
WHEREAS, All medical and scientific evidence acknowledges and affirms that children
before birth share all the basic attributes of human personality--that they in fact are
identifiable individual human beings; the unborn child is considered a person for purposes
of qualifying for medical care under the federal medicaid program; modern medicine treats
unborn children as patients; through ultrasound imaging and other techniques we can see
the child's amazing development; by using DNA profiling, before birth, indeed, even before
the new being is implanted in her mother's womb, we can be absolutely sure we are
monitoring the same individual from conception/fertilization through the various stages of
WHEREAS, The legislature of the state of Kansas has acknowledged, even as recently
as 1994, that a human being exists before birth by requiring the postponement of the
execution of a pregnant convict ``until the child is born.'' [K.S.A. 22-4009 (b)]; and
WHEREAS, The Kansas supreme court acknowledged in Smith v. Deppish, 248 Kansas
217, 231 (1991) that ``we humans create human offspring by transferring our DNA to our
children'' and that this is done ``during reproduction...,'' also known biologically as
fertilization or conception, or both. The Court further acknowledged in Smith v. Deppish,
248 Kansas 217, 232 (1991) that ``each persons'' DNA can be ``individualized''; and
WHEREAS, A controversy now exists when the pregnancy of a woman constitutes the
presence of a second person in order to qualify for medicaid while at the same time allowing
such funds to be expended for the purpose of terminating the life of that ``second person''
as well as the lives of other preborn human beings. Through the use of matching funds in,
and the administration of, the medicaid program and the use of state facilities in the
termination of the lives of innocent human beings, the state has become a direct party in
violating section 1 of the Bill of Rights of the constitution of Kansas; and
WHEREAS, This matter involves issues of law which have never been resolved by the
courts of the state of Kansas except to the extent questions have been raised in the Kansas
Supreme Court by City of Wichita vs. Elizabeth A. Tilson, 253 Kansas 285 (1991): Now,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the State of Kansas: That, based on
undeniable medical, biological and scientific facts, we do hereby acknowledge and affirm
that the unborn children in the state of Kansas have an equal and inalienable right to life
from conception/fertilization and that allowing the termination of the lives of innocent
human beings even before birth violates section 1 of the Bill of Rights of the Kansas
Be it further resolved: That in accordance with K.S.A. 75-702, the attorney general of
the state of Kansas is hereby required to seek final solution of this issue in the supreme
court of the state of Kansas and such other courts as may be warranted; the attorney general
is further directed to bring action in mandamus and quo warranto against the governor as
chief executive officer of the state and the secretary of social and rehabilitation services as
administrative officer of the medicaid program in Kansas for the granting of a prospective
permanent injunction barring the defendants from expending state funds for the purpose
of paying for the termination of the lives of innocent human beings, whether in utero or ex
utero; and the attorney general is further directed and ordered to plead to the court that
upon conception/fertilization there is life, that this life is that of a human being and to
further plead to the court to acknowledge and affirm that this human being is an ``individual'',
a ``man'' under the constitution of the state of Kansas. The most recent medical, biological,
and scientific facts and developments, especially those concerning the beginning of life and
the incontestable reliance on DNA profiling as a positive means of identification, must be
presented to the court in support of the above mentioned plea.
