It’s been quite a week – a good week!

April 14

On Friday, Governor Brownback signed Simon’s Law, making Kansas the first state to pass legislation guaranteeing the rights of parents when it comes to decisions about the provision of life-saving medical care for their children.

The Family Policy Alliance of Kansas worked closely with our friends at Kansans for Life who led the push for this important law.

Governor Brownback embraces Sheryl Crosier after signing the law named for her son, baby Simon.

Remarkably, this is the 18th pro-life bill signed by Governor Brownback during his six years in office. We are so grateful to be part of a team including Kansans for Life and Governor Brownback!

On Tuesday, a little piece of history was made when State Treasurer Ron Estes squared off against attorney James Thompson for the Fourth Congressional District seat vacated by CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

Tuesday’s election was the first special election to fill a Kansas Congressional seat in more than 50 years.

Ron Estes campaigned as a pro-life, pro-family, limited government conservative – and won! (See photo at the top of the page.) We wish him and his family well as they prepare to tackle the challenges of Washington, D.C. and will be praying for courage and success in this daunting task.
