Abortion in Kansas in 2023

A year after Roe v. Wade was overturned, Kansas is seeing a surge in interstate travel for abortion care, even as lawmakers continue to try and restrict access to the procedure. We take a look back at the biggest news in reproductive healthcare in Kansas in 2023.

After the fall of Roe v. Wade in 2022, Kansas became a hub for people who can't access the procedure in their home state.

2023 saw a boost in interstate travel for abortions, inundating Kansas' clinics. As more people seek abortion access across state lines, Kansans are finding it increasingly difficult to receive abortion care locally.

KCUR's Nomin Ujiyediin spoke with the Kansas News Service's Rose Conlon about the top stories on abortion rights in Kansas.
