Late this afternoon, Governor Laura Kelly issued a heartless veto of the bipartisan-passed, commonsense legislation to protect babies born alive after an attempted abortion (HB 2313).
Danielle Underwood, KFL Director of Communications, released the following statement:
“Legislators from both sides of the aisle stood together to state the simple fact that babies born alive after an attempted abortion should not be left to die on a cold, steel, table. These babies deserve protection and the same medical care as any other newborn of the same gestational age. This once again proves how out of touch Gov. Kelly is with the values of the people of Kansas. We now call on all Kansans to urge their legislators to do the right thing and override Gov. Kelly’s heartless veto.”
