1 min read

It was the first vote on abortion rights since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. "Voters in Kansas have just proven that the will of the people can be a powerful tool to overrule the will of a Republican-dominated Legislature," says reproductive health reporter Amy Littlefield, who calls the vote a "landslide."
