KS: Abortion is on the ballot for Tuesday

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“On a recent Sunday in Kansas, a red-tailed hawk soared over a Catholic church at dusk. Mass had ended, and clouds were rolling in. Inside the foyer, a slideshow featuring a picture of a curly-haired baby and his mother urged parishioners to ‘value them both,’ the slogan for those who want to change the state’s abortion laws. On 2 August, Kansans will vote on whether to alter the language of the state constitution, the first state to vote on such an amendment since the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade, abolishing the constitutional right for a woman to have an abortion. If it passes, members of the Republican-controlled state legislature can write laws that make it much harder, if not impossible, for a woman in Kansas to get an abortion.” [editor’s note: In states where there are statewide referenda, this is the correct process for passing a sane bill on this issue – SAT] (07/31/22)
