'Abortion abolitionists' in Kansas
A year after the U.S Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, divisions in the anti-abortion movement are becoming more visible. In Kansas, "abortion abolitionists" have begun organizing for a nationwide abortion ban with no exceptions — and for abortion patients to be charged with murder.
In the year since Roe v. Wade was overturned, more than a dozen states have made it illegal to provide abortions in most cases. But none, so far, punish women for obtaining abortions. As Rose Conlon of the Kansas News Service reports, a small but determined faction within the anti-abortion movement wants to change that.
