JOPLIN, Mo. – The U.S. Supreme Court’s historic decision to strike down its nearly 50-year-old precedent on abortion rights has shifted the debate from Washington D.C. to state leaders.

Kansans have the opportunity to vote on August 2nd to decide if state lawmakers should adopt tighter restrictions on abortions.

“I think the court did the right thing. It’s going to invite some difficult discussions in Kansas and around the country, said Kansas AG Derek Schmidt. “The decision has now been returned to the people and Americans have shown time and again we’re capable of arguing and debating and discussing among ourselves until we come to the right answer and the right balance. I think we’ll do that here, too.”

Officials say trigger laws banning most abortions are already in effect in Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
