U.S. Senator Jerry Moran of Kansas and Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle released statements this morning after the Kansas Supreme Court announced its decision against passing pro-life legislation. Moran said he is “saddened by the decision, that “an unborn child is a distinct human being” and that there is an “urgent need” for our federal laws to defend a baby's right to life at all stages.
The pro-life legislation turned down by ther Kansas Supreme Court is also supported by Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle who disagrees with the Supreme Court that the state's constitution protects the mother's choice. She said “nowhere in our state constitution is there a right to the violent act of abortion” and that “it protects our inalienable rights" which are in the Declaration of Independence - the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
The pro-life legislation has been sent back to the District Court of Shawnee County for more hearings.
