Gov Brownback calls on Pres Trump and others to enact pro-life laws

TOPEKA, Kan. - Kansas Governor Sam Brownback today sent a letter calling on President Trump, Speaker Ryan, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to enact abortion laws similar to those already passed and signed in Kansas.

“There are few things more essential to the identity of America than the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” wrote Governor Brownback. “A prerequisite for all other human rights, life is a gift endowed by our Creator. But this unalienable right is not equally protected for all our citizens; the youngest, smallest, and most vulnerable among us are suffering. The unborn children of America deserve a chance at life. Their inherent right to life is no less valid than ours, and now is the time for the federal government to take action on their behalf.”

Governor Brownback outlined four measures: Defunding Planned Parenthood, Pain Capable Act, Dismemberment Abortion Ban, and Sex-Selective Abortion Ban. A recent Marist poll found that the majority of Americans, Democrats and Republicans, support meaningful restrictions on abortion. 

A digital copy of the letter can be found here.
