An Associated Press photo showing "JESUS + Mary" written at the top of Gov. Sam Brownback's notes about the abortion bill he signed Friday has received some national media notice. The sweeping bill blocks tax deductions for abortion providers and those who receive abortions, requires abortion clinics to provide information about how abortion may cause an increase in breast cancer, and declares that life begins "at fertilization." The typewritten portion of Brownback's notes stated that the bill would create "a culture of life" in Kansas.
