There’s a better route to follow if Kansans want fewer abortions

It appears that higher wages and better incomes would be more likely to lower the abortion rate than anything currently happening in the Kansas Legislature.

Here we go again.

The Kansas Legislature is back, and anti-abortion advocates wasted no time initiating an amendment to the state constitution. If approved by two-thirds of both houses, and by voters, it would overturn last year’s decision by the Kansas Supreme Court affirming a woman’s right to have an abortion. Debate has already turned nasty, with legislators asking hostile questions of witnesses for both sides, legalistic arguments and farfetched, hypothetical scenarios being bandied to and fro. 

Dear Kansas legislators and anti-abortion activists: if you really want fewer abortions, then to quote the social media meme, you’re doing it wrong.
