TAKE ACTION: Abortion rights are on the chopping block in Kansas

1KeepAbortionLegal

 

The Kansas Legislature is advancing a dangerous bill to amend the state Constitution to say that there is no constitutional right to an abortion. This bill is moving quickly — and we need you to take action now.

If passed, this bill (HCR 5003) would place a constitutional amendment on the 2022 primary ballot that would overturn a 2019 Kansas Supreme Court decision declaring abortion a fundamental right under the state’s Bill of Rights. This bill would ultimately make it easier for more abortion restrictions and for the state to ban abortion outright if Roe v. Wade is ever overturned, which many fear may be in the near future. Read more.

The bill codifies into law beliefs not based on science or morality, but on religion and so-called holy books. The Christian Right has been and remains the primary opponent to women’s reproductive rights.

The past Friday (Jan. 22), the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Kansas House passed this bill 86-33. It is now headed to the Senate for a vote TODAY, Jan. 25, at 2:30 p.m. Please use our simple, automated system to contact your senator and urge them to oppose this dangerous bill.
