The governor of Kansas says he wants to be the governor who ends abortion in his state. Although governors don’t have the ability to unilaterally ban abortions and protect unborn children under law, it is encouraging that Kansas has a governor who has such a strong support for protecting women and unborn children.

Gov. Jeff Colyer made his remarks during a general session at the National Right to Life Convention, which is being held in Overland Park Kansas this week.

Gov. Jeff Colyer aroused a fervent crowd Thursday at the National Right to Life convention by declaring his hope to become the governor who ends abortion in Kansas.

He told attendees who packed the hotel conference room, where he received two standing ovations, that he needs their help in the fight to stack courts, Congress and the Legislature with individuals who support anti-abortion causes.

Colyer called for an end to all funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides a wide range of health services that extend beyond abortion. The crowd rewarded Colyer with loud applause.

“Your prayers are mattering,” Colyer said. “They make a difference. So I want to thank you, and I want to encourage you to double down. I want you to think about what you’ve been doing. Today is the day we recognize the opportunity ahead of us.”

“We need more prayers,” Colyer said. “We need more phone calls. We need you to raise more money. We need you to pass more laws. We need you to save more lives. We need you to love them all.”
