When you hear November elections, you may think of senators and representatives. It's probably a fair guess you don't know who Carol Beier is, or any of the other Kansas Supreme Court Justices.
The anti-abortion group Kansans For Life announced it wanted to oust Justice Beier at a rally in Topeka on Friday, the 37th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision.
Kansans For Life calls the campaign "Fire Beier." It wants Beier off the bench because of her past opinions against Phill Kline, the former Kansas Attorney General who tried to prosecute Wichita abortion provider Dr. George Tiller. Kline also tried to file charges against Planned Parenthood.
"Our political action committee will be encouraging them to vote to not retain Carol Beier, and probably some of the other ones," says Mary Kay Culp of Kansans For Life.
