New Ad Features OB/GYN on Adkins’ Extreme Abortion Agenda
Sharice for Congress Ad Highlights Real-Life Dangers of Adkins’ Extreme Anti-Choice Agenda
This weekend, Sharice for Congress released a new ad, “Duty,” featuring Dr. Kristi Weaver, a practicing OB/GYN in Overland Park. Dr. Weaver shares how Amanda Adkins’ support of extreme abortion bans with no exceptions in cases of rape, incest, or for the health of the mother would endanger Kansas women like her patients.
Watch “Duty” here:
“I have been an OB/GYN for over 10 years. It is my duty to care for my patients and keep them from harm. So when I hear Amanda Adkins say that she absolutely supports banning all abortions with no exceptions, it makes me wonder how I am going to be able to take care of my patients,” Dr. Weaver says in the ad.
Adkins, a self-proclaimed “pro-life advocate,” endorsed a far-right manifesto that would put forth a nationwide total abortion ban from five to seven weeks of gestation. The proposal that she supports would also ban abortion without exceptions for rape, incest, or the health of the mother and send doctors to prison for doing their jobs. Adkins, who vocally supported the anti-choice constitutional amendment in August, is also endorsed by extremist groups who said a 10-year-old rape victim should be forced to have the baby.
Meanwhile, Rep. Davids joined over 67 percent of voters in the Kansas Third in rejecting the extreme anti-abortion amendment and in Congress, she has voted to codify Roe and keep politicians out of Kansans’ health care decisions.
