Kansas will become the first state to vote on a constitutional amendment about abortion on Aug. 2.

The vote comes a little more than a month after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that legalized abortion nationwide, returning the issue to state legislatures.

Kansans will head to the polls next Tuesday to decide whether the right to an abortion is protected by the Kansas Constitution, according to KWCH-TV.  Voting by mail is already underway in The Sunflower State.

The local outlet reported while the words “right to an abortion” are not directly stated in the Kansas Constitution, a 2019 Kansas Supreme Court ruling protects a person’s right to personal autonomy, which includes decisions concerning pregnancy. Now voters must decide if unborn persons have any rights.

Currently, abortion is still legal in Kansas, but Kansas law prohibits abortion after 22 weeks of pregnancy or in cases where the life and health of the mother are in jeopardy. In the case of a minor, parents must be notified.

The proposed Kansas No State Constitutional Right to Abortion and Legislative Power to Regulate Abortion Amendment otherwise known as the “Value Them Both Amendment” would essentially end abortion-on-demand in the state. It would also prohibit the state government from funding abortions and give lawmakers the right to pass abortion laws.

The website Ballotpedia broke down how a citizen’s “Yes” or “No” vote would affect the election’s outcome.

  •  A “Yes” vote supports amending the Kansas Constitution to state that nothing in the state constitution creates a right to abortion or requires government funding for abortion and that the state legislature has the authority to pass laws regarding abortion.
  • A “No” vote opposes amending the Kansas Constitution to state that nothing in the state constitution creates a right to abortion or requires government funding for abortion and that the state legislature has the authority to pass laws regarding abortion. A “No” vote would maintain the legal precedent established in Hodes & Nauser v. Schmidt (2019) that there is a right to abortion in Kansas.
