Kansas voters on Tuesday rejected a state constitutional amendment that would have declared there is no right to abortion, according to Decision Desk HQ. . .
Kansas voters delivered a victory to abortion rights advocates in a deeply conservative state.
“The vote, which comes just over a month after the U.S. Supreme Court revoked federal abortion rights, demonstrates once again that voters across the country do not want politicians interfering in their health care decisions,” Planned Parenthood Action wrote in a statement Tuesday night.
The vote was the first statewide referendum on abortion since the Supreme Court overturned the Roe v. Wade decision in June. The ballot question drew national attention as an early indicator of whether abortion rights will motivate voters in November’s midterm elections.
The amendment’s failure will prevent Kansas’ Republican-led legislature from passing severe abortion restrictions without violating the state constitution. (Read more from “Kansas GOP Push to ‘Value Them Both’ on Abortion Law Fails” HERE)
