Kansas upholds right to abortion, a blow to anti-abortion movement in first Roe referendum

1 min read

Advocates both for and against abortion in Kansas expected the vote to be close ahead of Tuesday night’s primary, but the margin was so decisive – 61%-39% – that news outlets called the vote fewer than two hours after polls closed.
