Members of a Kansas church who are the target of new laws prohibiting funeral protests say they'll obey the measures.

Members of Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka have picketed at funerals of military personnel who were killed in Iraq.

The group claims the soldiers are being killed by god because of America’s acceptance of homosexuality.

Now, at least 17 states including Kentucky are considering or have passed laws to discourage these protests.

A church member says they'll obey the new laws but are considering a legal challenge.
