NRL President Carol Tobias shared her thoughts, following Tuesday defeat of the “Value Them Both” Amendment:
Sadly, thousands and thousands of babies will die in Kansas.
Lies about ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages, and false claims that women who have abortions would be prosecuted, promulgated by the media and the abortion industry, resulted in a tragic loss for women and their unborn babies.
Contrary to those lies, pro-life legislation allows the removal of ectopic pregnancies and other procedures to save the life of the mother, the treatment of miscarriages, and does not impose any penalties on women who have abortions. Over 70 pro-life organizations signed a statement opposing criminal penalties for women who have abortions.
