The Kansas State of America made a historical decision about abortion as per the massive votes from the people themselves and overturned the Roe V Wade decision in the past June. The US supreme court has declared the amendment that prevents women from having abortion rights. Kansas is a conservative state but has a strong history of protests against abortion ban laws in the past and has done an open referendum on the sudden amendment by the US supreme court.

The decision of the US Supreme court could make hope to democrats for upcoming elections for massive success. The people’s referendum results were welcomed by the President, Joe Biden, and he added that women should have access to abortion and should have the right to make their own health care decisions. The open vote of Kansas was done to know the majority vote that indicates supporting abortion and women’s health or a “yes” to support the verdict of the US supreme court.

The Democratic governor Laura Kelly lead the campaign against banning abortion even though the other democrats in the neighboring states still remain silent or do not do anything for checking people’s opinions.

Gov. Laura Kelly was elected in the year 2018 after 8 years of Republican governors, Jeff Colyer and Sam Brownback. According to her latest podcast interview, she said that she is focusing on the “bread and butter” problems of the state.
