On this Monday after a Chiefs victory, I wanted to take a quick minute to update you on Value Them Both and to ask for your help.
On Friday, Value Them Both passed in the House. This is a huge victory! Last year we fell four votes shy in the House, but after the election, the House came back with an even stronger pro-life contingent. Two-thirds of the representatives stuck with us through several difficult proposed amendments.
In the end, 86 representatives voted FOR Value Them Both, two more than constitutionally required.
Special thanks to Reps. Tory Arnberger, Susan Humphries, Ron Ryckman, Dan Hawkins, and Blaine Finch who championed the bill and spent countless hours ensuring that the bill passed. We are so thankful for every representative who took a stand for mothers and babies.
Now we’re on to the Senate!
The Senate was scheduled to vote on this bill last week, but one senator, Senator Dennis Pyle, a consistent pro-lifer in the past, was absent from the building. Value Them Both will come to the floor again soon. Please remind the Senate that this is the most important pro-life bill of our generation. It’s easy on our action page. We need them to show up and vote!
