Kansas Advances Anti-Abortion Measure on Roe’s Birthday | Government and politics

25 Janvier, 2021, 10:09 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

Republicans on Friday pushed a proposed pro-life amendment to the Kansas Constitution through the state House on the 48th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's historic decision protecting abortion rights.

The measure was approved 86-38, giving abortion opponents two votes more than the two-thirds majority necessary for passage. Their decision made abortion legal in the United States at any point of someone's pregnancy. The City of West Hollywood, in 1993, was the first city in the nation to declare itself pro-choice and the City has continually supported state and federal legislation protecting and advancing women's reproductive rights and access to healthcare.

In the second period, the Capitals extended their lead with a goal from Nick Dowd, but the Sabres tied it right back up. This brings up a lot of questions heading into Sunday's rematch and the future of the Caps' season.

Opponents of abortion have argued that the measure would simply allow lawmakers to regulate abortion as they have done in the past and in accordance with US Supreme Court rulings.

If the measure is approved by a two-thirds majority in both chambers, it would go in August 2022 primary ballot. Critics have said opponents of abortion choose this time because the smaller primary electorate tends to be more conservative than a larger November general electorate.
