Ron Estes on Abortion

 

 


Lead the fight to protect the unborn

?I believe that every human being has an inalienable right to life. I am proudly pro-life, and as your Congressman, I will lead the fight to protect the unborn. One of my top priorities will be to defund Planned Parenthood. American taxpayers should not be forced to fund organizations that perform abortions.

Strong advocate for the unborn

Kansans for Life endorsed Ron Estes in his run for US Congress. The endorsement email sent to KFL members says:

"Ron Estes is running as the Republican candidate and has been endorsed by Kansans for Life. Ron has been actively involved with Kansans for Life for a number of years and is a regular attender at KFL events around the state. We are very excited to have Ron as our candidate and believe he will be a strong advocate for the unborn in Washington D.C.

"His opponent, James Thompson, has said that he hopes to remove all restrictions on abortion, including repealing the Hyde Amendment which prevents tax-payer money from funding abortions. It is critical that pro-lifers get out to vote for Ron Estes."

Pro-life, according to PVS survey.

Estes opposes the PVS survey question on abortion rights

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Abortion: Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."

Sponsored bill to protect infant survivors of abortion.

Estes co-sponsored Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

S.311/H.R.962: Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act: Congress finds the following:

Opposing argument from Rewire.com, "Born Alive Propaganda," by Calla Hales, 4/12/2019: From restrictive bans at various points of pregnancy to a proposed death penalty for seeking care, both federal and state legislators are taking aim at abortion rights. The goal? To make abortion illegal, criminalizing patients and providers in the process. One kind of bill making a recent resurgence is the "Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act." These bills aim to further the false narrative that abortions regularly occur immediately before or, according to the president, at the time of birth. Intentional action to end the life of an infant is already illegal. This is covered by federal and state infanticide laws. These bills do nothing but vilify physicians who provide reproductive health care.

Legislative outcome Referred to Committee in House; Senate motion to proceed rejected, 56-41-3 (60 required).
