The fight is NOT over – and Kansas is proof

Johh, Yesterday, the people of Kansas overwhelmingly chose to reject the GOP's extreme agenda and affirm reproductive rights in their state constitution. Through the hard work of an enormous movement led by fearless organizers, volunteers, and activists, a dangerous anti-abortion amendment was …
