The Kansas Ballot: Reproductive Rights | Kansas City MomCast Special Episode

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.

  1. Hi there! I would love to hear this information but listening to a 30 min podcast is hard with two littles! Is there a written transcript I could read?
    Thank you!
