On Kansas Day of all days, your state senators voted to reaffirm that our state is truly a pro-life state by voting 28-12 to pass the Value Them Both Constitutional Amendment. The Senate debated the issue for over four hours on Wednesday afternoon and evening and finally passed the amendment about 8 p.m.
Sen. Susan Wagle, the main sponsor of the bill, stood strongly to protect both women and babies on the floor, repeatedly stating that this amendment ensures that the most vulnerable in our society aren’t left to the predation of the abortion industry.
The opposition presented amendment after amendment, yet the pro-life senators stuck together and refused to allow the opposition to divide them.
Many senators did so much to make this happen, but there are several senators that deserve a special thanks for carrying the weight of the debate on the floor: Senators Wagle, Rucker, Tyson, Pyle and Baumgardner. If you live in one of their districts, please thank them – and any of the senators who voted for life.
We are thrilled by this victory. But there is no time for rest.
It now goes on to the House where it will be hotly debated. It is critical right now that you let your state representative know how important this is to you and to the future of Kansas. This is the biggest pro-life vote of our generation.
We have the momentum. With God’s blessing and your help, we’ll protect babies and moms all over our state.
For Kansas Values,
Brittany Jones, Esq.
Director of Advocacy
