Gov. Kelly Vetoes “Pregnancy Compassion Awareness Program Funding,” Fourth Radical Pro-abortion Veto this Session

by | Apr 25, 2024

(Topeka, KS – April 25, 2024) – Yesterday, Governor Kelly line-item vetoed the proposed “Pregnancy Compassion Awareness Program,” which would renew allocation of $2M in grant funding to provide and enhance resources for women who want to make the choice to parent or place their child for adoption.

“Four times this legislative session, Gov. Coercion Kelly has proved her abortion extremism,” said Jeanne Gawdun, KFL Director of Government Relations.

“First, she vetoed protections for women who are coerced into abortions and shot down transparency in state statistics reporting; then she blocked financial relief to families hoping to adopt. Now she wants to remove resources for women facing unexpected pregnancies. It’s clear the only ‘choice’ the Kelly/Toland Administration supports is abortion.”

Kansans for Life urges legislators to stand with Kansas women and families by overriding Gov. Kelly’s extreme, out-of-touch, veto.
