96% of Kansas Voters Agree: Babies Deserve Medical Care after a Failed Abortion

Study finds rock-solid support for Born-Alive protections across all data subsets

In an independent study commissioned this spring by Kansans for Life (KFL), Kansans unequivocally stated that babies born alive after an attempted abortion should not be left to die on a cold, steel, table.

According to Heart+Mind Strategies, which conducted the study from March 24-April 3, 2023, “Fully 96% of Kansas registered voters agree that babies should receive medical care. Every subgroup examined in the study shows a super-majority agreement with providing medical care, including those who self-declare themselves as “Pro-Choice” (95% agree). Interestingly, there is only a four percentage point difference with those who identify as “Pro-Life”, with 99% in agreement.” (read study summary document)

KFL Director of Government Relations, Jeanne Gawdun, explained the significance of the findings in light of the upcoming veto override attempt by the Kansas legislature of the bipartisan passed, “Born-Alive Infants Protection Act,” HB 2313:

“By vetoing HB 2313, Governor Kelly has staked out one of the most extreme pro-abortion positions possible: effectively endorsing infanticide. The question this week is how many legislators will follow her to the extremist fringe by voting to uphold this outrageous veto.”

Kansans for Life calls upon legislators of both parties to vote to uphold widely shared Kansas values and override the ideologically driven veto of the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act.
