KFL Statement on Kelly’s Supreme Court Appointment

Kansans for Life (KFL) is extremely disappointed in Governor Laura Kelly’s selection of pro-abortion judge Melissa Standridge for the Kansas Supreme Court.

As a Court of Appeals judge, Standridge upheld the district court’s finding of a “right to abortion” in the 1859 state Constitution, thus opening the door to unlimited abortion in

“Laura Kelly continues to stack state courts with appointees who will do the abortion industry’s bidding,” stated Jeanne Gawdun, KFL Director of Government Relations. “Standridge’s appointment is a setback for the preborn and their mothers. This is just another example of why we need a more transparent and democratic selection process for judges.”
