ICYMI: Rep. Sharice Davids Stands Up for Individual Liberties, Stands Against Extreme Bans
On Sunday, Rep. Sharice Davids joined MSNBC’s The Sunday Show to stress just how high the stakes are on personal freedoms in Kansas. After the Supreme Court ruled to overturn Roe v. Wade, the eyes of the country have been on Kansas, as the state is the first in the country to vote on reproductive freedom in less than a week.
Davids set the scene, saying: “Were it not for a constitutional protection here in Kansas to access abortion, they would have already passed one of these extreme bills.”
It was recently revealed in a bombshell report by the Kansas Reflector that the Kansas Legislature is ready to ban abortion if the constitutional amendment passes. Former Sam Brownback advisor and Republican candidate Amanda Adkins has a record of supporting similar total bans with “no exceptions for rape or incest, beginning at fertilization.”
This week, Davids made her voice heard and voted early against the restrictive constitutional amendment. Additionally, Davids’ legislation to protect marriage equality passed the U.S. House. Davids is the only candidate for the Kansas Third, both in August and November, who will fight to protect Kansans’ personal freedoms.
