Planned Parenthood wants to open up a new facility in Kansas City, Kansas. Although the new facility may or may not commit abortions, there is an abortion facility just 15 miles away that they would definitely refer people too.
But Kansas students aren’t going to let Planned Parenthood wreak havoc on their state; that’s why they kicked off their campaign against Planned Parenthood with a rally on Saturday, September 21st, in front of the Wyandotte County Commission building, the governmental office for Wyandotte County and Kansas City.
Stephanie Lugo, the Kansas Regional Coordinator for Students for Life, noted that students from Kansas University, Kansas State University, Washburn University, and Emporia State University all attended to help push back against Planned Parenthood’s extremism. One student even brought six younger siblings with her to start to teach them young about the importance of protecting human dignity.
Lugo noted, “Kansas students from across the state banded together to magnify the voice of the Kansas City community in asserting that they don’t want Planned Parenthood in their community. Kansas City is pro-life, and students from across the state recognize that there are better and more authentically pro-woman healthcare options than Planned Parenthood.”
The pro-life community in Kansas City has already had a victory; the funeral home Larkin and Garcia had originally planned to rent to Planned Parenthood through an office building next door that the funeral home owned. However, public pressure led them to withdraw their lease offer.

Next, the group will be sending letters and making phone calls to Commission members, urging them to oppose a new Planned Parenthood. If you want to help, contact Stephanie Lugo at [email protected].
