Tuesday’s Kansas election results are final and it was a huge victory for life! All Kansas members of the U.S. Congress and Senate will aggressively fight to turn back ‘Obamacare’ with its abortion promotion and rationed healthcare threats.
Our goal at Kansans for Life has always been to create a Kansas where all unborn children and their mothers are protected and welcomed. Gov.-elect Brownback has stated that he will sign all pro-life bills that get to his desk, and we are designing a legislative agenda with that in mind.
We made a net gain of thirteen new House reps that are pro-life,
- bringing the 125 member total to 88 pro-life and 37 pro-abortion;
- 79 out of 92 Republican reps are pro-life;
- 9 out of 33 Democrat reps are pro-life.
11 districts with hard-core Democrat pro-abortion incumbents were replaced with self-identified pro-life GOP reps. These seats were mostly in the Overland Park and Wichita areas whose residents have long suffered the presence of abortion clinics.
No districts held by pro-life GOP reps changed to pro-abortion reps and only 2 districts represented by pro-life Democrats look like they have new reps that are pro-abortion.
We are grateful for the hard work of our KFL political action committee, for pro-life voters and activists, and for all pro-lifers who stepped up to improve our government by running for office.
All pro-life Kansans should salute these House reps who, due to retirement or a lost election, are not returning as reps, but who voted consistently to advance the pro-life cause under the pro-abortion Sebelius/ Parkinson administrations:
John Faber (R-Brewster), Bill Light (R-Rolla), Margaret Long (D-Kansas City), Steve Lukert (D-Sabetha), Pat Maloney (D-Kingman), Don Myers (R-Derby), Melvin Neufeld (R-Ingalls), Shirley Palmer (D-Fort Scott), Don Svaty (D-Ellsworth), and Jeff Whitham (R-Garden City).
