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.
It’s hard to believe that it has been one month since Dobbs v Jackson case was decided. Since the decision, nearly half the country have or will restrict abortion thanks to pro-life laws passed by state legislature.
Unfortunately, for many states controlled by pro-abortion leaders, the hard work and perseverance must be doubled. At the same time, those of us who live in states that have banned abortion should continue to be on the alert to ensure its state defends life at its earliest stage. No doubt this will be at stake in many senate, congressional, and gubernational races.
Take the first step today in doubling your efforts to defend life and end abortion. The issue is not settled in the state capitals, city halls, or even the legislative or executive branches. Instead, this can be settled in our homes, communities, and even on the public square when we change the hearts and minds of those who are directly or indirectly involved with the Culture of Death.
Never give up, persevere. The abortion lobby’s house of cards will soon fall.
We just witnessed the fall of Goliath thanks to Dobbs v Jackson. Now, we must chase after the Philistines and have them surrender.
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! Visittinyurl.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
Now, that we will navigate the first full month in a post-Roe society, there is much work that needs to be done to build a culture of life. There is no victory lap.
Summer is upon us, yet we still must be present outside of abortion facilities, pregnancy resource centers (with the threat of the summer of rage from the pro-aborts), and even those from all walks of life

As the Dobbs v. Jackson decision is pending, the recent leak has propelled violent acts by unhinged pro-abortion terrorist organizations.
Unfortunately, Philadelphia was not immune to these attacks. Hope Pregnancy Center, located on Broad Street and a mile south of Temple University, was vandalized this past Saturday.
The details have not been released. The director asks for prayers and will update the pro-life community on what we can do.
It is clear that those who advocate for abortion and claim that pro-lifers don’t care about women are total hypocrites of this myth. They’re the ones who have been anti-woman. They’re the ones who see women as dollar signs. They’re the ones who do not want to help women with their pregnancies. They’re the ones who choose which science to follow while dismissing the claim that life begins at conception.
The real people since the half a century of the debate who care for women are those who work in pregnancy centers and are targets of domestic terrorists. Those who work or volunteer for the abortion industry lack love and mercy while carrying years of regret deep down their heavy, suffering hearts who are in need of Jesus.
To paraphrase Winston Churchill: We shall not be afraid nor fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in our communities, the public square, and oceans; we shall fight with growing confidence and growing perseverance in the faith that God is on our side. We shall never surrender. Never give in.
The following is from Kim Griffen. If you can help, no matter how big or small, it is appreciated. Be sure to learn more about Biking for Babies by visiting their website here.
On June 11th, my cousin Rachele and I will be participating in Biking for Babies’ first local ride in the Philadelphia area (Exton, Pa.) We are biking to raise awareness and funds for pregnant women and their babies!
Would you consider “sponsoring” our ride with Biking for Babies? We hope to raise $500. Your contribution will support the Sisters of Life, Chester County Women’s Services, and the Hope Pregnancy Center. Thanks in advance, your contribution to this cause means so much to us!
We know times are tough for many folks right now, so if you are unable to donate could you please share the link with family or friends? Neither of us has social media so we could use some help reaching out to the pro-life community! Thank you!
Please pray for pregnant women vulnerable to abortion and their precious babies. And please pray for all the cyclists participating on June 11th!
The Senate Bill Women’s Health Protection Act was defeated today. Along with 50 republicans that stopped it from codifying Roe v Wade into federal law, one lone Democrat crossed party aisles to prevent this so-called “healthcare bill” from being passed… Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
The bill would’ve wiped out 500 pro-life bills passed on the state level while expanding abortion to the point of coercing medical staff against their moral conscience and even allowing non-medically licensed people to perform the procedure.
We have another pro-life victory, despite a deadlock in the senate and a razor-thin pro-death majority in the House of Representatives.
Pray. Fast. Hold the line. Hold your elected officials accountable. We’re not done yet.
Bear in mind, that this debate will be decided when we make abortion unthinkable and it begins in our community. Continue changing hearts and minds.
