When the Kansas Senate failed Wednesday to override Gov. Mark Parkinson’s veto of this session’s anti-abortion bill, state Sen. Ralph Ostmeyer, R-Grinnell, said what many Kansans surely were thinking: “We will have a change in governor. We will get this passed. It is just a year away.” After 16 years of governors willing to veto anti-abortion bills, Kansas seems likely to elect pro-life hero Sen. Sam Brownback to the job in November. But Ostmeyer said something else at odds with reality in the GOP-controlled Legislature, in which every vote can seem to be about abortion: “Someday I hope the unborn has a voice in these chambers.”
