Value Them Both Amendment — Here it is!

WHEREAS, This proposition to amend the bill of rights of the constitution of the state of Kansas shall be known and may be cited as the Value Them Both Amendment.

Now, therefore:
Be it resolved by the Legislature of the State of Kansas, two-thirds of the members elected (or appointed) and qualified to the Senate and two-thirds of the members elected (or appointed) and qualified to the House of Representatives concurring therein:

Section 1. The following proposition to amend the constitution of the state of Kansas shall be submitted to the qualified electors of the state for their approval or rejection: The bill of rights of the constitution of the state of Kansas is hereby amended by adding a new section to read as follows:

“§ 22. Regulation of abortion. Because Kansans value both women and children, the constitution of the state of Kansas does not require government funding of abortion and does not create or secure a right to abortion. To the extent permitted by the constitution of the United States, the people, through their elected state representatives and state senators, may pass laws regarding abortion, including, but not limited to, laws that account for circumstances of pregnancy resulting from rape or incest, or circumstances of necessity to save the life of the mother.”

Section 2. The following statement shall be printed on the ballot with the amendment as a whole:
“Explanatory statement. The Value Them Both Amendment would reserve to the people of Kansas, through their elected state legislators, the right to pass laws to regulate abortion because there is no Kansas constitutional right to abortion or to require the government funding of abortion.

“A vote for the Value Them Both Amendment would reserve to the people of Kansas, through their elected state legislators, the right to pass laws to regulate abortion because there is no Kansas constitutional right to abortion or to require the government funding of abortion.

“A vote against the Value Them Both Amendment would make no changes to the constitution of the state of Kansas and could prevent the people, through their elected state legislators, from regulating abortion in many circumstances. It would leave in place the newly discovered right to abortion first recognized in 2019.”

A patients’ “eye view” of COVID19


My brother recently was discharged from the hospital after 57 days, during the COVID19 shutdown. We all were celebrating his release and improving health. My brother reached for my hand and asked about the COVID19 virus and how I felt. He then shared his experience as a patient, during COVID19.
“Sis” he said, “are you ok? I mean, these nurses that cared for me work so hard”. His head dropped and eyes looked directly at me, while he added ” they work with me all day, and then I wake up a night, and the same nurses are still there, like resting in the chair next to my bed. They don’t get a break”. He then asked me, “Are we caring for these nurses? Are we doing enough for them sis? I was so worried about them, they have families, are their families ok?”
We talked and talked about COVID19 and the shortage of PPE, the stress, the isolation, the lost jobs, the economy and much more, but again, he came back to “no sis, are they ok?”
