ALL REGISTERED VOTERS,
REGARDLESS OF PARTY REGISTRATION,
ARE ALLOWED TO VOTE ON THIS CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT.
HISTORY: In April 2019, the Kansas Supreme Court ruled that abortion would remain legal in Kansas.
Six out of seven justices on the State Supreme Court ruled that the Kansas Constitution protects a woman's right to abortion - EVEN IF the landmark Roe v. Wade case were to be reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court.
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT: The Republicans in the legislature were bent out of shape by this Supreme Court ruling. And they vowed to not give up their war on women.
And this is what they came up with. . .
THE CONSEQUENCES: This is their play: carve out the state constitution to open the door for anti-abortion laws to come down the pike.
VOTING NO WILL KEEP THE STATE CONSTITUTION AS IT IS.
VOTING NO WILL MAKE ZERO CHANGES TO THE STATE CONSTITUTION.
This is the language you will see on the ballot:
