Archbishop Naumann dialogues with Chuck Weber, executive director of the Kansas Catholic Conference about the Value Them Both Amendment, which returns to voters the right to pass reasonable regulations to abortion.  This conversation was recorded on March 16th when the coronavirus social distancing orders were going into effect.

They discuss how the Kansas Supreme court through its Hodes v. Schmidt decision has unleashed limitless abortion upon the state and so the only recourse Kansans have is to pass an amendment to the state constitution. The  Value Them Both amendment is not a ban, but simply ensures the people can place basic regulations to protect both mothers and babies.

Naumann dialogues with Chuck Weber of the Kansas Catholic Conference and Deb Niesen of the Pro-Life office about restoring the rights of Kansans to pass common-sense, pro-life laws by overturning the Kansas Supreme Court's recent ruling that the there is an inherent "right" to abortion in the Kansas Constitution.

What Happened? 

On April 26, 2019, the Kansas Supreme Court took power from Kansas voters and found—created—a nearly unlimited “right to abortion” in our 1859 State Constitution. Prior to this ruling, through widely supported limitations, our state’s abortion rates had been reduced by 43 percent since 1999 and partial-birth abortions had been completely banned. Essentially, women and their preborn babies have now been abandoned to an unregulated abortion industry.

Because of the Kansas Supreme Court’s April 26, 2019, ruling, existing bans on partial-birth and taxpayer-funded abortions are now in danger of being rendered unenforceable. Furthermore, the ruling allows violent live dismemberment abortions to continue and threatens these lifesaving limits:

 

  • Parental consent for minors seeking abortion
  • Informed consent, alerting women to potential health risks
  • 24-hour waiting period
  • Abortion clinic sanitation and safety standards

Terry Beatley will be coming Kansas to share the fascinating and true story that all Americans should know:

How Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the man known in the 1970s as “America's Abortion King", helped NARAL launch the national campaign for abortion-on-demand by deceiving the Courts and Americans and undermining the Church, and after his Saul-to-Paul conversion, became a staunch defender of life!

Naumann interviews journalist and Catholic convert, Sohrab Ahmari, about his book, From Fire, by Water, that tells the story of his growing up in Iran and the intellectual and spiritual journey that lead him from Marxist atheism to the Catholic Faith.

"Sohrab Ahmari was a teenager living under the Iranian ayatollahs when he decided that there is no God. Nearly two decades later, he would be received into the Roman Catholic Church.

In From Fire, by Water, he recounts this unlikely passage, from the strident Marxism and atheism of a youth misspent on both sides of the Atlantic to a moral and spiritual awakening prompted by the Mass. At once a young intellectual’s finely crafted self-portrait and a life story at the intersection of the great ideas and events of our time, the book marks the debut of a compelling new Catholic voice."

Archbishop Naumann interviews Abby Johnson about the upcoming movie based on her life...

Unplanned 

In Theaters March 29, 2019

https://www.unplannedfilm.com/

Unplanned is the inspiring true story of one woman’s journey of transformation.

All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she was involved in upwards of 22,000 abortions and counseled countless women about their reproductive choices. Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in.
 

Until the day she saw something that changed everything, leading Abby Johnson to join her former enemies at 40 Days For Life, and become one of the most ardent pro-life speakers in America.

 

Take a friend and go see this movie.  It is truly life changing.

Naumann interviews Elizabeth Kirk, a family law scholar and faith-based adoption advocate.  They discuss the harm and unintended consequences for children when adult activists force faith-based organizations out of the adoption process because they will only place kids in homes with a married father and mother.

Kansas is currently considering a law to faith-based adoption and you can help by going to ProtectAdoptionChoice.org

Thousands of children in the U.S foster system are in desperate need of a safe place to call home, particularly minority children, older children, and those with disabilities. Faith-based adoption agencies in Kansas have been giving these children forever homes for over 60 years.

Sadly, other states have implemented policy changes that prevent faith-based providers from serving in accordance with their sincerely held religious beliefs. Catholic Charities’ adoption ministry was forced to shut down after 100 years of serving in Boston. Agencies in San Francisco, Illinois, and DC have also been forced to close because of their policy of only placing children in homes where they will have the lifetime benefit of a married mom and a dad.
