"Pro-Life" Kansan Leadership Hopes to Kill Real Pro-Life Legislation

Kansas is a very pro-life state. And Kansas has pro-life Republican leaders in the state's General Assembly. But, those pro-life leaders are not actually committed to the pro-life cause -- they just like to call themselves "pro-life."
The legislature adjourns tomorrow and if the residents of Kansas don't act today or in the morning, the legislature might fail to pass the Comprehensive Abortion Reform Act ("CARA").
The legislation would clean up fraud and abuse in the Kansas abortion industry. It would require abortion clinics to report cases of child abuse and incest. Likewise, it would require full disclosure of the risks of abortions before one can be had, as well as giving women the option of hearing the child's heart beat before choosing to kill the child.
Governor Kathleen Sibelius vetoed the original CARA, but when the Senate held the veto over-ride, a key Senator was not in town that day. The Senate President held the veto over-ride in bad faith, knowing that it would fail.
The sponsor re-drafted the legislation to meet the Governor's concerns and the pro-life coalition in the Kansas legislature is working to get it passed.
If you live in Kansas you can and should take advantage of Kansans for Life's action center and demand passage of the CARA.
Or, you could just call 1-785-296-0111 and demand to speak to Melvin Neufeld, Steve Morris, and Derek Schmidt. Tell them to either pass CARA or stop calling themselves "pro-life."
