The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Caleb Dalton regarding a ruling by the Johnson County District Court Monday in Hodes & Nauser v. Kobach that allows Planned Parenthood and other abortionists to temporarily block enforcement of Kansas’ pro-life, pro-woman law, the Woman’s Right to Know Act:

“For decades, women in Kansas have been empowered to make fully informed decisions when it comes to the health of their pregnancies and the consequential decision to end the life of their unborn child. These kinds of informed consent laws reflect the long-standing will of the people of Kansas, but Planned Parenthood challenged the law because it impacted their bottom line. Planned Parenthood has made it clear that its goal is to withhold information from women, bypass ultrasounds, and refuse to meet with women before an abortion. Kansans are right to want to protect maternal health and safety and the lives of the unborn, and we will continue defending their interests.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization committed to protecting religious freedom, free speech, parental rights, and the sanctity of life.
