The Kansas amendment to remove the constitutional protections for abortion rights has FAILED!
This is a massive win for pro-choice Americans and a complete game changer ahead of the midterms. This response in a RED, RED state is an indication of what is ahead in swing states and more moderate parts of the country.
According to a friend from Kansas:
"The reason the conservative majority wrote this proposed amendment is because our state constitution explicitly protects bodily autonomy and in 2019, our state Supreme Court cemented this. The Kansas SC has had its say. This was in part a response to that and the overturn of Roe. They tried to recall the SC justices unsuccessfully over this. Our legislature can’t make any more abortion laws unless the people vote for it.
The margin for "No" in red Kansas was a resounding support FOR abortion rights, a sign of just how unpopular overturning Roe v. Wade is nationally.
If Deep Red Kansas is pro-choice, then the entire nation is heavily pro-choice. This is a winning issue for Dems!"
