Today we are addressing a topic that we feel is important for our listeners and as women, can affect us in profound ways. Our goal today is to educate you on the constitutional amendment concerning abortion access that will appear on the August 2nd ballot in Kansas.
We discuss a variety of topics with our guest, Danielle Keller, from the League of Women Voters including the history of abortion laws in Kansas, the current restrictions in place, and what the amendment seeks to do. We also cover what a “yes” and “no” vote mean and ways to further educate yourself and become involved ahead of the election.
The deadline to request advance mail-in ballot is Tuesday, July 26. Request an advance ballot at ksvotes.org. You can drop your ballot off at various dropbox locations or return to your polling place on election day.
