Kansas becomes the first state to vote on abortion since Roe v. Wade was overturned

Kansas residents are voting on whether to scrap abortion rights from their state constitution on Tuesday, the first such ballot measure since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June.

Choosing ‘no’ would keep the law unchanged. 

Any bill would likely face a veto from Democrat Governor Laura Kelly, which the red-dominated legislature has the votes to override.
