KS: Voters reject anti-abortion amendment

“In Kansas, abortion rights activists celebrated a major victory when voters overwhelmingly rejected a ballot initiative that would have endangered abortion access in the first statewide electoral test since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. The Kansas result suggested that anger over the Supreme Court’s June decision could help Democrats to galvanize voters at a time when many Americans are blaming Democratic President Joe Biden’s administration for soaring gasoline and food prices. … With 95% of the estimated vote counted, just under 60% of Kansas voters had cast ballots in support of the state constitution’s abortion protections.” (08/03/22)
