All of Our Pro-Life Laws Could be at Risk

March 24

Did you know that every single pro-life law in Kansas is at risk of being thrown out by the state Supreme Court?

Abortion by dismemberment is a common abortion procedure performed on unborn babies in the second trimester. Beyond 12 weeks gestation a baby is too large to be removed in one piece, so abortionists use forceps to tear off a baby’s limbs and crush their head. In 2015, Governor Brownback signed the Kansas Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, making Kansas the first state to ban the barbaric procedure.

Two Overland Park abortionists sued and the case worked its way to the state Supreme Court, which heard arguments on March 16. The attorney for the abortionists argued, “The right of Kansas women to terminate a pregnancy should be recognized and protected as a fundamental right.” The Justices’ questions suggest they agree.

Does the Kansas Constitution mention the word “abortion?” Of course not. In a tragic irony, abortion advocates contend that the so-called fundamental right to tear apart an unborn child is found in the section of the Bill of Rights which states, “All men are possessed of equal and inalienable natural rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools (Romans 1:21-22).

Friends, we are living in a Romans 1 world. Each day brings evidence of the foolishness of our culture, which can’t recognize the life of the unborn, the devastation wrought by the breakdown of the family, or even the difference between male and female.

We, too, were once entrapped and blinded by sin. If not for Jesus, we would still be lost. Now, since we have been saved, we have the privilege of sharing the truth with others and working to ensure our laws are consistent with God’s created order. Thank you for coming alongside the Family Policy Alliance to make Kansas a place where God is honored.
