2020 SENATE RACE

STATE SEN. BARBARA BOLLIER (D)

An anesthesiologist and state senator, Bollier has fought to expand Medicaid for Kansans, and has championed every person’s right to access health care, including abortion.

The saddest thing … to me is whether you outlaw abortion only determines whether women will be safe having an abortion or not.

  • As a Kansas lawmaker, Bollier pressed colleagues to expand access to Medicaid. She believes that health coverage through Medicaid could enable more Kansans to obtain birth control or have better medical support during pregnancy and birth: “I would give anything for people not to have to be in situations where you make these very heart-wrenching decisions,” she said. 

  • Bollier opposes efforts to ban abortion — voting against bills to abolish telemedicine abortion, to grant so-called “fetal personhood,” and to impose medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion providers. “I will protect a woman's right to make her own, private health care decisions in consultation with her health care provider," Bollier says.

  • When politicians attempted to “defund” Planned Parenthood, Bollier spoke out: “I am absolutely amazed that people who want to reduce abortions believe they can do so by cutting off funding for contraceptives,” she said.

REP. ROGER MARSHALL (R)

A member of Congress, Marshall has called Roe v. Wade — the Supreme Court case that affirms the right to access to safe and legal abortion — “tragic.” Early in 2020, Marshall joined other lawmakers opposed to reproductive rights in urging the Supreme Court to consider overturning Roe.

Just like Jesus said, ‘The poor will always be with us.’ There is a group of people that just don’t want health care and aren’t going to take care of themselves.
