Kansas voters preserve abortion access in high-turnout primary

It was the first state-level test since Roe v. Wade was overturned.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Abortion rights opponents in Kansas vowed to keep fighting after voters here decisively rejected removing the right to abortion from the state constitution in the first state-level test since the Supreme Court overturned federal abortion protections.

"This setback is not going to stop us. Our resolve has never been stronger than in this very moment," Peter Northcott, executive director of Kansans for Life said following Tuesday's defeat.

Coming just weeks after the Roe v. Wade decision, organizers on both sides said voters were more energized and engaged, leading to record turnout despite the issue being decided in a primary in a midterm year when numbers are historically lower.
As of Tuesday morning, more than 298,618 Kansans had cast ballots compared to the 2018 primaries during which only 89,449 had voted early, according to the Kansas secretary of state's office.
The "Value them Both" amendment centered on a 2019 Kansas Supreme Court ruling that protected abortion under the state constitution.
If the amendment had passed, it would have given the state's GOP-controlled legislature the power to pass new abortion restrictions.
With 99% of the expected vote counted as of 8:31 a.m. Wednesday, "No" led with 59% to "Yes" at 41%
