Value Them Both Amendment Passes Senate, Voters Now Decide
Jeanne Gawdun, Kansans for Life Director of Government Relations
Kansans for Life (KFL) wishes to thank the Kansas Senate for approving the Value Them Both Amendment to the Kansas Constitution and allowing voters to weigh in at the ballot box in August of 2022. The measure, having previously been approved by the House, received 28 votes with 11 opposing.
“The Value Them Both Amendment protects the bi-partisan supported limits on the abortion industry that protects both women and their babies ” stated Jeanne Gawdun, KFL Director of Government Affairs. “Thank you to the State Senators who backed the measure and struck down extreme amendments that would leave vulnerable women behind.”
“Just like in the House, there were many heroes who stood for mothers and babies. Special thanks to Senators Molly Baumgardner (R-Louisburg) and Kellie Warren (R-Leawood) for carrying the amendment during floor debate. Additionally Renee Erickson (R-Wichita) and Senate President Ty Masterson (R-Andover) have also showed exceptional leadership throughout this whole process.”
