Hartman Statement on Adoption, Pro-Life Stand
Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Wink Hartman's father was left on the doorstep of the Wichita Children's Home in the mid-1920's with a twin brother he wouldn't meet until decades later.

Wichita, Kansas -- Candidate for Kansas governor, Wink Hartman, made the following statement regarding his support for adoption and the right to life.

I'm pro-life for many reasons, primarily because I believe the right to life is granted by God. I'm also a proponent of adoption, because the decision of one young lady I have never met, made me who I am today.

In the 1920's, my father was left at the Wichita Children's Home. An infant at the time, he wouldn't find out until decades later that he was a twin.

I remember my father and the joy in his face when he found out that he had a brother out there. We were all so excited to find another part of our family story.

Wink Hartman's father was adopted from the Wichita Children's Home for $2.50.

My father was adopted from the Wichita Children's Home for $2.50 in 1925. My father, so grateful for the chance to be part of a family, named me after his adoptive father, Willis Hartman.

When candidates talk about being pro-life, or being for adoption, it's a policy issue. For me, it's why I'm here today.

I'm here running for governor, passionate about life, passionate about adoption, passionate about the treatment of kids in foster care -- about defunding Planned Parenthood, because of the decision of a young lady made in 1925, and the generous heart of my adoptive grandparents.
