Constitutional amendment, part 2

The proposed Kansas amendment is very short. It just takes away the right to an abortion. It does briefly mention the issues of pregnancy resulting from rape and incest, or when the life of the mother is at risk, but only in order to add that maybe somebody can “regulate” those situations later.

The proposed amendment is worded in a weirdly twisted way that makes it sound as though the proposed legislation will somehow give people more rights, although it is quite explicitly taking away rights. But to me the most important part of all this may be what the ballot initiative does not talk about.

More tomorrow.
