We cannot separate moral, scientific and logical truth from our actions
if we are to succeed. The truth is the truth. It cannot be ignored or
denied. For this reason, the pro-life movement, by our statements that
life begins at conception and ends at natural death, will succeed.

Right To Life
"All men are possessed of equal and inalienable natural rights, among which are life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." (Kansas Bill of Rights, Section 1)
“These are natural rights; but by this section we say that they existed prior to
the formation of any government; that they are coextensive with the essence of man,
and so were before the formation of civil government.” (Mr. Lillie, Delegate to
Kansas Constitutional Convention)
“A man's right to his life is inalienable in law under all circumstances. He has
no right to sell or give it away - no right to dispose of it at all." (Samuel A.
Kingman, Delegate to Kansas Constitutional Convention)
“Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the State of Kansas: That, based
on undeniable medical, biological and scientific facts, we do hereby acknowledge
and affirm that the unborn children in the state of Kansas have an equal and inalienable
right to life from conception/fertilization and that allowing the termination of
the lives of innocent human beings even before birth violates section 1 of the Bill
of Rights of the Kansas Constitution;” (Kansas House of Representatives Resolution
The written constitution is the `basic law' of the state. The Bill of Rights are
a declaration of `basic rights' that may not be denied or infringed upon by the state
or any local government. Since the US constitution "trumps", as they say, any state
constitution the state cannot prohibit any abortion so long as Roe v. Wade and its
progeny stands. (1) But the US Supreme Court has also said that the US Constitution
contains no language requiring a state to pay for any abortion. (Webster v. Reproductive
Health, 492 US 490, 507-511(1998)) Each state makes that decision when it `chooses'
to take part in the Medicaid program. The 10th Circuit Court has said, "In this
context, a difficult choice remains a choice and a tempting offer remains an offer."
(State of Kansas v. US of America, US 10thCircuit Court of Appeals No. 98-3341
part III) Kansas cannot constitutionally enter into such a compact. (Elmer Feldkamp,
