Kansas voters will soon decide the fate of the state’s current abortion law.

As is, Kansas laws allow  for a woman to receive an abortion in cases of rape or incest, if a pregnancy endangers a mother’s life and if a pregnancy is fewer than 22 weeks of a typical 40-week term.

The law generally “protects a woman’s right to decide whether to continue a pregnancy,” members of the Kansas Supreme Court ruled in 2019.
