Kansans vote to uphold abortion rights in their state

President Joe Biden said that the vote “makes clear what we know: the majority of Americans agree that women should have access to abortion and should have the right to make their own health care decisions.” 

In a statement celebrating the outcome, NARAL Pro-Choice America said that the “vote signals to Kansas and the rest of the country that Americans value reproductive freedom and will fight to protect it.”

“Reproductive freedom is a winning issue, now and in November,” said the group’s president, Mini Timmaraju. “Anti-choice lawmakers take note: The voters have spoken, and they will turn out at the ballot box to oppose efforts to restrict reproductive freedom.”
