Kansans are facing a pivotal choice for the U.S. Senate: incumbent pro-life GOP Senator Pat Roberts versus pro-abortion multimillionaire Greg Orman.
Orman was unknown to Kansans before he bought over a million dollars in TV ads this summer denigrating Washington’s “gridlock” politics, and offering to end it. Orman portrays himself as an “outsider”–an “independent” candidate– even though more than 90% of his sizable past political donations have gone to Democrats.
Orman is quite the stealth candidate, except to the abortion industry. They know exactly who he is. Back to that in a moment.
Sen. Roberts released a great new radio ad Wednesday, with a crystal clear message that cuts right to the heart of the differences between himself and Orman:
“The right to life is the most fundamental right we have.
“From conception to natural death, the life of every Kansan, every American, every human should be honored and protected.
“That’s why we need to keep Pat Roberts in the Senate.
“Pat Roberts has a 100% pro-life voting record.
“Endorsed by both National Right to Life and Kansans for Life, Pat has been a key supporter of every major pro-life initiative in Senate.
“Pat opposes abortion on demand and federal funding of abortion.
“If you care about life, Pat Roberts is the only choice.
“Pat’s opponent, liberal Greg Orman, doesn’t share our values.
“Greg Orman is pro-abortion.
“Greg Orman would give President Obama another pro-abortion vote in the Senate.
“We can’t let that happen.
“Orman says we have to move past this issue.
“Pat Roberts, on the other hand, will never stop fighting for life.
“Protect life, Pat Roberts for Senate.”
Back to Greg Orman. He has never held public office, lacks any record of public service, and has generally avoided taking specific positions on the major issues.
But in a recent debate with Sen. Roberts, Orman described himself as “pro-choice.” He said he “trusts women” and the public should “get past” the abortion issue.
Surprise, surprise. All three Kansas abortion businesses are supporting him!
- The Overland Park abortion clinic of Hodes & Nauser (father-daughter abortionists who have sued to block enforcement of Kansas’ pro-life laws) have Orman signs in the windows.
- Last Saturday Planned Parenthood of Kansas & Mid-Missouri held a joint rally in support of Orman and other Kansas pro-abortion Democrat women candidates (Orman’s wife was advertised as being there on his behalf).
- A letter praising Orman’s candidacy was published in the Wichita Eagle, written by Julie Burkhart, who has opened an abortion business (manned by “circuit-rider” abortionists) at the location of the late George Tiller’s infamous abortion clinic.
The choice for Kansans is clear: Pat Roberts who has pledged “never to stop fighting for life.”
