There is nothing newsworthy in today’s press release from the Guttmacher Institute (the former research arm of Planned Parenthood) asserting that pro-life laws in Kansas are not “science-based.”
Abortion promoters are trying to steer the public away from the absolutely irrefutable scientific fact that each abortion destroys a tiny unborn living member of the human family. That’s the science that matters—and it is demonstrated in every sonogram.
KFL Executive Director Mary Kay Culp commented,
“the one truly irrefutable scientific fact in the abortion debate is the humanity of the unborn child; if they come up with a scientific report proving that wrong, we’re all ears.”
As they have regularly done in the past, Guttmacher misstates Kansas law. Kansans for Life has repeatedly reported errors, with documentation, to no avail.
In the state comparison chart, Guttmacher asserts that only two Kansas “provider” provisions are being litigated. However, all four “provider” provisions are part of the 2011 Abortion Clinic Licensure Act, enjoined and not in effect due to litigation stalled in the court of Judge Franklin Theis since June of 2011.
The PR problem the abortion industry faces is the increased pro-life convictions of the voting public, which has strongly elected pro-life legislators, the majority of all sitting governors and the new Trump administration.
Kansans have overwhelmingly supported the laws Kansas has passed. We cringe at our past history as the late-term abortion capital of the nation. It would be a travesty for the Kansas State Supreme Court to believe otherwise as they prepare to issue a ruling on whether our pre-Civil War Constitution contains a right to abortion broader than that created by Roe to Wade.
