State Ballots To Offer Voters A Choice On Abortion Laws In November

Abortion measures are hitting the ballots following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade in June, which effectively ended the federal protection of abortion rights and allowed states to make their own laws regarding abortion.

Fifty-four percent of Americans said they would vote to allow abortion in their states, according to an August 10 Ipsos poll that surveyed people who identify with both major parties.

Abortion-rights advocates look at Kansas in hope that states will vote to implement some sort of abortion access.

Earlier this month, Kansas provided the first vote on abortion laws with nearly 60% of voters defeating an amendment to the Kansas Constitution that would have eliminated the constitutional right to abortion by a large margin. The result of the vote surprised political pundits as former President Donald Trump won the state by almost 20 percentage points over President Joe Biden two years ago.
