PRO-LIFE AMENDMENT FAILS IN KANSAS

Despite the hard work of canvassers through Students for Life Action, the pro-life amendment has failed to get enough yes votes with 58% voting again the life-saving amendment during yesterday’s state primary.

The pro-life amendment would have added language to the Kansas Constitution stating that there is no right to an abortion or taxpayer-funded abortion. Although it would not ban the killing of unborn babies in abortions, it would allow the voter-elected state legislature to do so.

“Without this amendment, even barbaric late-term abortions will be allowed,” said Harrison Butker, kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs, in an ad supporting the amendment. “This amendment will let Kansans decide what we do on abortions, not judges and not D.C. politicians.”

It is a sad day that a so-called “Conservative State” in the middle of the heartland of the United States chose death over life.

Pro-lifers all across the board must double their efforts to ensure life is protected from womb to tomb.

Support PA Constitutional Amendment to Protect Life

The following is from Maria Gallagher in response to the passage of PA’s life amendment. She reminds us of the next steps to ensure PA is a pro-life state.

Dear Pro-Life Leaders,

The Pennsylvania Senate and House of Representatives have now passed the Constitutional Amendment which would bar taxpayer funding of abortion and would keep abortion out of the PA Constitution. The legislation ensures that the people, through their duly-elected representatives, would decide on abortion policy rather than the courts.

The Amendment was included in Senate Bill 106. To find out how your state Senator voted, click here (https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/RC/Public/rc_view_action2.cfm?sess_yr=2021&sess_ind=0&rc_body=S&rc_nbr=709 ).

If your state lawmakers voted for SB 106, please thank them.

The Amendment must pass the House and Senate again next session before the issue can be placed on the ballot for voters to decide. The next session begins in January. The legislation does not need to be signed by the Governor since it is a Constitutional Amendment.

Thank you so much for all you have done to support this important Constitutional Amendment!

The Life Amendment passes the State Senate

The following is from the Pennsylvania Family Institute.

Today, the State Senate passed the Life Amendment – the proposed bill that would amend the state constitution to maintain the status quo in Pennsylvania that it is up to the people through their state legislators, not the courts, to decide how best to regulate abortion. The bill now goes to the House, where we pray for swift passage. Call your state representative today and ask them to vote for the Life Amendment! Visit tinyurl.com/TwoCallsForLife.

This measure is critically needed to respond to a lawsuit and anticipated ruling from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court which would force taxpayer funding of abortion in Pennsylvania and invent a “right to abortion” in Pennsylvania’s Constitution. That lawsuit was initiated by Allegheny Reproductive Services (an abortion center in Pittsburgh) along with several other abortion clinics and Planned Parenthood.


We thank every State Senator who voted today to pass the Life Amendment, a proposed constitutional amendment that empowers Pennsylvanians, not the courts, to decide how best to regulate abortion. “Pennsylvanians agree that no one should be forced to pay for an elective abortion through their taxdollars. Just as the U.S. Supreme Court, in the overturn of Roe and Casey, ruled that the authority to craft abortion policies should be ‘to the people and their elected representatives,’ this amendment preserves the rights of the people through their representatives to make these decisions that rather than Pennsylvania’s courts.” – Michael Geer, President of the Pennsylvania Family Institute
