Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer says he wants to be the governor who ends abortion in the state, but he'll need help from fellow abortion opponents to do so. 

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the Republican spoke Thursday at the National Right to Life convention that is taking place in Overland Park. Colyer told attendees that there remains a need to stack the courts, Congress and state legislatures with those who oppose abortions.

Recent decisions by the U.S. Supreme court made for an upbeat crowd at the convention, and the group was excited about the announced departure of Justice Anthony Kennedy. George Delgado, medical director for the group Abortion Pill Reversal, told the crowd that Kennedy's retirement could lead to the overturning of the Roe v. Wade decision.
