The state of Kansas has decided to protect abortion rights in a major victory for pro-choice groups.
Voters overwhelmingly said they did not wish to amend the state constitution to assert there is no right to abortion.
Projections suggest Kansans voted by more than 60 per cent to uphold the state’s constitutional right for women to access abortion.
When Roe v Wade was overturned, President Biden said abortion rights would be an issue for the voters. What’s happened in Kansas has turned that theory into evidence.
Donald Trump won Kansas by 15 points just two years ago, but has now voted to protect abortion access by what is being seen as a landslide.
It’s just a projection for now, and the official result will be confirmed in a week.
