Kansas voters reject pro-life amendment to state constitution

Kansas voters rejected Tuesday a ballot measure to remove abortion rights from the state constitution, handing a resounding victory to the pro-choice movement in the first popular vote on the issue since the fall of Roe v. Wade.

With 90% of the vote counted, the No State Right to Abortion amendment was behind by 62.2% to 37.8%, marking a disappointing defeat for pro-life advocates and a pivotal win for Planned Parenthood and pro-choice groups.

“I’ve seen enough: in a huge victory for the pro-choice side, the Kansas constitutional amendment to remove protections of abortion rights fails,” tweeted Dave Wasserman, House editor for the Cook Political Report.

The amendment, also called Value Them Both, would have affirmed that “there is no Kansas constitutional right to abortion,” overriding a 2019 Kansas Supreme Court decision holding that the state constitution guaranteed the right to “personal autonomy,” including abortion.

If passed, the measure would have cleared the way for the Republican-led legislature to tighten restrictions on abortion.

Women may obtain elective abortions in Kansas up to 20 weeks’ gestation, or 22 weeks after their last menstrual cycle, and then afterward when the woman’s health is severely compromised.

The state also requires parental consent for minors, pre-procedure ultrasounds, counseling, and a 24-hour waiting period. <Source>

Bottom line…

This is how democracy works. The people decide on issues of importance to them under the Fourteenth Amendment.

The U.S. Constitution was designed to limit the power of the federal government by specifying its enumerated powers. All other decisions belong to the states or “We the People.” And certainly not to nine individuals in black robes, regardless of their purity or ideology.

This is how it should be—a step toward returning to a constitutional republic.
