Abortion is one of the hottest topics in the country.
And President Trump is hellbent on protecting unborn babies.
But this state Supreme Court’s recent decision is a major blow to President Trump and pro-lifers across the country.
The Kansas Supreme Court issued its verdict that the Kansas Constitution protects a woman’s “right to choose” to terminate her pregnancy.
The ruling now stands as the law of the land in Kansas.
The law at the heart of the case, called the Kansas Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, is now on the chopping block and would have banned abortions except when necessary to preserve the life of the mother, prevent impairment of a major bodily function of the mother, or where the unborn child is already dead.
Sadly, the court sided with the plaintiffs, two physicians who perform abortions, in a lopsided 6-1 decision.
Kansas is a conservative state where pro-life legislation has been chipping away at the so-called “right” to murder an unborn child.
And pro-life legislators and organizations intend to fight back against the ruling.
One such organization, Kansans for Life, intends to do just that.
Mary Kay Culp, the executive director of Kansans for Life, said in a statement:
“We plan to do everything in our power to amend the Kansas state Constitution to make it crystal clear that one cannot infer from it the right to an abortion that would throw out 45 years of pro-life legislation in Kansas.”
Court battles will no doubt go on, but the Kansas law will remain blocked.
Some legal experts claim that even if Roe v. Wade is overturned, abortion could remain legal in Kansas because the state’s constitution allegedly protects the woman’s right to choose.
And Roe v. Wade could very well be overturned given the recent makeup of the Supreme Court, especially if President Trump has the opportunity to replace Justice Ginsburg.
President Trump has been considered one of the most pro-life presidents to ever hold the office.
And no doubt abortion will remain a topic with the 2020 election just on the horizon.
Trump argues that the Democrat Party has become nothing more than the party of open borders, crime, and late-term abortions.
What do you think? Should Kansas’ State Constitution protect a woman’s “right” to an abortion even if Roe v. Wade is overturned?
