Topeka, KS — Wichita attorney Rick Macias has been appointed by Gov. Sam Brownback to serve on the Kansas Board of Healing Arts, and pro-abortion groups are livid.
“Pro-abortion groups are having a fit over the appointment of this attorney because he is openly pro-life, but they are making a mountain out of a mole hill. Operation Rescue has had minimal professional contact with Mr. Macias. He is an excellent attorney with a high reputation for integrity and honesty. He will be a great addition to the Board of healing Arts, which is undergoing reform after being wracked with scandal and corruption under the pro-abortion Sebelius Administration,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
“The old Board was filled with pro-abortion cronies who worked to protect abortionists from accountability under the law. The new Board has undergone a major house cleaning and is beginning to be a functional agency again.”
Operation Rescue contends that the appointment of Macias is a huge improvement over Sebelius appointees.
In an unbelievable move that reflected the poorest of judgment, former Gov. Sebelius, who now serves as U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, once appointed disgraced abortionist Howard Ellis to serve on the Board of Healing Arts even though he had recently surrendered his Missouri medical license in order to avoid discipline. It was not long before Ellis resigned under pressure, and two months later was charged by the Board with attempting to persuade a physician to falsify records.
“Brownback’s appointments have shown infinitely better judgment than his predecessors. Elections have consequences. The abortion fanatics who want to protect child-killing at any cost just need to deal with it,” said Newman.
