Keep abortion vote out of the primary

If lawmakers want the people of Kansas to vote on this issue, and it is possible they likely will, then get the actual will of the people. This is a topic for the general election.

The possibility of an anti-abortion amendment to the Kansas Constitution being brought before voters during the August primary election is an obviously bad and unfair idea.

First, let’s make this clear: We do not have a stance on this amendment itself. We’re watching from the sidelines and simply concerned about fairness. We’d feel this way about amendments on infrastructure, education or anything else lawmakers ask voters to decide.

And because of this, we are duty bound to point out that holding a vote like this during the primary plays right into an obviously unfair conservative advantage.
