A Kansas For Life mailer implies that voting against their abortion amendment is supportive of Planned Parenthood (TCJ Feb. 25). I vehemently object to any implication that opposition to their amendment is tantamount to support of Planned Parenthood.


Yes, some legislators who support Planned Parenthood oppose the amendment. I also adamantly oppose this amendment, but for pro-life reasons. In the unfortunate event that it is approved by the Legislature, I will vote against it.


As a founder of Right To Life of Kansas, I have spent the past 50 years working to restore legal protection to all preborn children. For anyone to equate my opposition to the KFL amendment with support of Planned Parenthood would be a vile calumny.


I oppose the amendment because it continues the decades-long strategy of regulating rather than prohibiting abortion; a strategy that has failed; that has brought us no closer to protecting innocent babies than we were in 1973.


It is time to allocate resources to protecting babies rather than trying to regulate an industry that has no right to exist.


I oppose this amendment because it enshrines in the constitution the authority and the ability of this or a future Legislature to enact the very same approval of abortion that was mandated by the Kansas Supreme Court in April 2019, a law to allow every abortion. How can that be a pro-life proposal?
