Kansas Students for Life, including state captains, rushed to the state capitol yesterday to help advocate for a constitutional amendment to protect the preborn and to stop activist judges from writing laws in the state. The Value Them Both Amendment would ensure that voters and legislators, not state judges, write laws, as is mandated by the separation of powers.
Ichabods for Life, the pro-life group at Washburn University, brought students to the state capitol to advocate for the legislation, led by Kansas state captain Charlee Bonczkowski.
The Kansas state senate passed the legislation, and now the house has to pass it for the amendment to be added to the ballot for voters to approve.
According to LifeNews.com, “Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, promised to make the amendment a legislative priority, and she was a strong advocate for women and unborn babies on the Senate floor Wednesday….Pro-life lawmakers hope the amendment will be on the August ballot for voters’ approval, but the Signal noted that its fate is less certain in the Kansas House. Both legislative chambers must approve the measure by a two-thirds majority before voters can consider the question.”
You can help advocate for this legislation by contacting house members in Kansas. You can find information about the house members here.
Kansas state captains have also been active in fighting a new Planned Parenthood facility in Kansas City. You can read more about that here.
