Abortion industry ally Governor Kelly vetoes financial assistance for adoptive families and organizations that help pregnant women in need

by | Apr 22, 2024

Friday, April 19th — Governor Laura Kelly’s abortion extremism was on full display today as she vetoed life-affirming tax policies in House Bill 2465.

The governor used her veto pen to block existing resources giving financial relief to families longing to adopt children and support to organizations that assist moms who want to choose life for their babies.

HB 2465 would establish adoption savings accounts and increase tax credits for adoptive families, eliminate the sales tax burden for pregnancy resource centers, and create tax credits for donors to those organizations.

“By her heartless veto, Governor Kelly has shown once again that her only allegiance is to the profit-driven abortion industry, and not to vulnerable Kansas women, children, and families,” said Jeanne Gawdun, Kansans for Life (KFL) Director of Government Relations. “KFL calls on legislators to override the governor’s veto of HB 2465 when they return to Topeka next week.”
