The South Wind Women's Center in Wichita, Kansas, has compiled a Candidate Questionnaire covering races in Kansas and Oklahoma, the two states where they are providing services.
We have created a candidate questionnaire to give candidates running for office in Kansas and Oklahoma a chance to share their views about reproductive rights with voters.
The South Wind Women’s Center Candidate Questionnaire is meant to help citizens determine where candidates in their districts stand on issues surrounding reproductive healthcare. This guide is not published with the intent of endorsing certain candidates; rather, it is published with the goal of educating citizens.

In the Oklahoma Goveror's race, only Independent candidate Richard Prawdzienski responded to the questionnaire. In the US Senate races in Oklahoma, both the seat Jim Inhofe is defending and the open seat to replace Tom Coburn's unexpired term, only OK State Senator Connie Johnson, the Democratic Party candidate, responded to the questionnaire, with a "No" response to Questions 1 and 14, and "Yes" to all the rest.
Of the Congressional races, only Independent candidate Robert Murphy, running in District 5, responded to the survey, answering "Yes" to every question except #14, where his answer was "No."
The chart of responses also indicates the voting records -- "pro-choice" or "anti-choice" -- of elected officials, when available, as well as how candidates rated on the Oklahomans for Life Candidate Survey (PDF), and whether they have been endorsed by Sally's List, the Oklahoma-based organization supporting pro-choice candidates.
