Kansas votes to protect abortion rights in state constitution

Washington Correspondent

It was the first test at the ballot box since the US Supreme Court overturned a women’s right to an abortion, previously enshrined by the Roe v Wade case.

The very conservative state of Kansas wasn’t expected to vote in an abortion referendum the way it did.

But there was a record turnout and nearly 60 per cent voted to protect women’s abortion rights.
