The Pro-life Battle Amid COVID-19
WHY THE AMENDMENT IS NEEDED
A recent Kansas Supreme Court ruling removed the legal foundation for all existing laws that permit basic regulations on abortion. Value Them Both simply allows for these existing laws to be protected.
EXAMPLES OF SAFEGUARDS ON ABORTION THAT ARE AT RISK:
Basic regulations for sanitation, sterilization, and safety that all health facilities follow.
Requirement that abortions be performed by a medical doctor with hospital admitting privledges.
Requirements to inform women of the physical and emotional implications of abortion.
Mandates to notify parents when a minor is seeking an abortion.
Prohibition of the gruesome practice of late-term dismemberment abortion.
Protections against taxpayer funds going to Planned Parenthood and abortions.
Without the Value Them Both Amendment unlimited abortion will come to Kansas. Our legislature will no longer be able to hold the abortion industry accountable, just like we’ve seen in states like New York and Illinois. With our voices and our vote we will let it be known that Kansas values both women and our unborn children.
WHAT THE AMENDMENT SAYS
“Because Kansans value both women and children, the constitution of the state of Kansas does not require government funding of abortion and does not create or secure a right to abortion. To the extent permitted by the constitution of the United States, the people, through their elected state representatives and state senators, may pass laws regarding abortion, including, but not limited to, laws that account for circumstances of pregnancy resulting from rape or incest or circumstances of necessity to save the life of the mother.”READ THE FULL BILL
