Tuesday’s special election in Kansas’ 4th Congressional District to replace pro-life Rep. Mike Pompeo (R) is of particular interest to pro-lifers. It is the first special election to take place since pro-life Donald Trump was elected President and pro-abortion organizations are heavily invested in the pro-abortion Democrat.

Following nominating conventions, the general election candidates to replace Pompeo, who is now CIA director, are Ron Estes (R), Jim Thompson (D), and Chris Rockhold (Libertarian).

The special election for the seat representing south-central Kansas is a clear-cut pro-life/pro-abortion contest.

Pro-life state Treasurer Ron Estes has been endorsed by National Right to Life. Attorney Jim Thompson supports a policy of abortion on demand. Chris Rockhold’s position is unknown.

Tomorrow Kansas voters will decide which candidate best represents their values:

On Abortion

Ron Estes is pro-life, and opposes using your tax dollars to pay for abortion.

James Thompson supports abortion for any reason. When asked about the Hyde Amendment during a Feb. 8, debate, Thompson said, “As Congressman, I would take action against any kind of legislation that’s going to prohibit reproductive rights.” The Hyde Amendment forbids the use of federal dollars to pay for abortions except in very limited cases. It is credited with saving two million lives.

On the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

Ron Estes would vote for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The Act would protect unborn children who can feel pain, by prohibiting abortion at 20 weeks. Medical science has established this as the point by which (if not earlier) the unborn child is capable of experiencing excruciating pain when she is being killed by dismemberment or other late abortion methods.

During a debate on Feb. 8, James Thompson said he would oppose “any kind of bill, any kind of legislation that is going to infringe upon a woman’s right to make those choices for herself. I’m going to be against it, and I’m going to act against it.”

Your vote matters. Please vote pro-life for National Right to Life-endorsed Ron Estes for Congress tomorrow in the April 11 special election.
