Kansas Truth Caucus Supports Pro-Life Senate Concurrent Resolution Condemning New York Late-Term Abortion Law

Denounce New York’s Governor’s Use of the Freedom Tower 

 

TOPEKA, KS: Today twenty-seven pro-life Senators introduced a resolution condemning the New York late-term abortion law, the Reproductive Health Act, because it violates the fundamental principles and values of this nation. As Kansans, we recognize the intrinsic value of life and will tirelessly work to protect it. The Kansas Truth Caucus believes public policy should protect the life and well-being of a woman and her unborn child from abuse and violence in all circumstances.

 

Kansas Truth Caucus Board Member and one of twenty-seven Senators to sponsor the resolution, Sen. Mary Pilcher-Cook said, “If our society does not recognize human life as having intrinsic value in our laws, human life is treated like property. Property to be killed, bought or sold, giving a "right" to a dead child. It is a brutal exercise of raw power over a human life and it is an appalling violation of justice. This is clearly a civil rights abuse and New York is way off the mark and now steeped in depravity because of this law.”  

 

Sen. Pilcher-Cook continued, “We urge New York to reconsider their recent actions and repeal this legislation for the good of humanity.”

SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

 

By Senators Masterson, Alley, Baumgardner, Berger, Billinger, Bowers, Braun, Denning, Estes, Givens, Goddard, Hardy, Hilderbrand, Kerschen, Longbine, Lynn, McGinn, Olson, Petersen, Pilcher-Cook, Pyle, Rucker, Suellentrop, Taylor, Tyson, Wagle and Wilborn

 

A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION condemning the enactment of the Reproductive Health Act by the state of New York, because it violates the life and well-being of a woman and her unborn child.

 

WHEREAS, The people of Kansas, as a matter of public policy, value and seek to protect all

human life, from fertilization as stated in K.S.A. 65-6732, and amendments thereto; and

 

WHEREAS, The state of Kansas values the lives of the mother and the unborn child in the

womb and seeks to protect both from abuse and violence; and

 

WHEREAS, The Reproductive Health Act expands abortion past 24 weeks of pregnancy and

allows abortions up to the moment of birth, if "the abortion is necessary to protect the patient's life or health." This terminology allows a woman to claim minimal mental or societal effects as a reason for an abortion, up to the very moment of birth; and

 

WHEREAS, The Reproductive Health Act allows not just physicians but also licensed nurse

practitioners, physician assistants and licensed midwives to perform abortions, and thus, removing important safety protections from women; and

 

WHEREAS, The Reproductive Health Act repealed vital protections for an unborn child who is born alive and who survives an abortion attempt; and

 

WHEREAS, The Reproductive Health Act repealed all protections from criminal acts of

violence against a woman's unborn child, leaving citizens no legal recourse for the killing of any child in the womb in the state of New York; and

 

WHEREAS, The Reproductive Health Act lessens the consequences for perpetrators of

domestic violence, when their actions cause the death of a woman's unborn child, thereby inciting abusive behavior towards a pregnant woman; and

 

WHEREAS, The state of New York celebrated the passage of the Reproductive Health Act by

turning the lights pink on the Freedom Tower. This structure, a symbol of freedom for our entire nation, includes the names of 10 mothers with the inscription "and her unborn child," each of whom were killed during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center; and

 

WHEREAS, At least four other states are considering legislation that is similar to the

Reproductive Health Act: Now, therefore,

 

Be it resolved by the Senate of the State of Kansas, the House of Representatives concurring

therein: That the state of Kansas hereby condemns the Reproductive Health Act of New York and all similar laws in other states as violating the fundamental principles and values of the state of Kansas and of this nation. We call on legislators and executive officials of New York to reinstitute protections for women and unborn children in their state. Further, we call on legislators and executive officials in all fifty states to ascribe inherent value to all human life and reject any legislation like the Reproductive Health Act that would incite abuse and violence toward women and their unborn children; and

 

Be it further resolved: That the Secretary of State shall send an enrolled copy of this resolution to the Governor of New York and to each member of the New York State Senate and the New York State Assembly.
