Educators Edith and Ada Krause of Marysville, Kansas, write Kansas Governor Mike Hayden, of Topeka, concerning abortion legislation before the Kansas Legislature. The letter argues that legal abortions reduce fatalities of women seeking illegal abortions. The letter also argues for the use of contraception to reduce the need for abortions. Governor Hayden's response is also included. The state legislature was considering two bills: the Post Viable Child Act (S.B. 343) and the Parental Consent Bill (S.B. 225) that would place restrictions on abortion services. The 1973 U. S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade confirmed a woman's constitutional right to terminate her pregnancy and limited the restrictions states can impose on abortion. A complete transcription is available by clicking "Text Version" below.
