The first vote in the post-Dobbs era has ended, and Kansas, considered a very red state these days, has voted to keep abortion legal in the state. (gift link, no paywall) This is an enormous victory for women, and for freedom everywhere. That the vote was not even close should be somewhat reassuring, but there is still a very long road ahead to the mid-terms. Let’s not get complacent.
The people who will put themselves in charge of our bodies to demand our reproductive labor, will put themselves in charge of our bodies to demand every other kind of labor.
