‘Pro-Life’ Republican Kansas Governor Guts Funding For Dying Infants

Another supposed “pro-life” governor has decided that children outside the womb are less important than those inside the womb. Kansas Governor Sam Brownback is gutting the agency responsible for child protective services, child support enforcement, and child, adult and family well-being services, after a failed attempt to slash funding for Head Start.

Governor Brownback is an enemy of children in Kansas. He is killing children with the destructive policies of the religious right, so that he can replace them all with fetuses that will be at risk after birth. It’s a sad reality we are living in, when we allow children that are already born to die in an effort to control what a woman decides about her pregnancy.
