Kansas voters reject constitutional amendment banning abortion

The message sent by Kansas voters last night was as surprising as it was clear: keep abortion legal in our state. By a large margin, traditionally conservative Kansas rejected an amendment that would have taken away women’s right to abortion. It was the first time Americans were called to weigh in on the issue since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June. That’s despite polls showing broad public support for abortion rights. President Biden has now called on Congress to pass a law to restore the protections Roe provided, and with the midterms just three months away, this could be a potent issue for Democrats. Donna Shalala served as health secretary under Bill Clinton and joins the show to discuss. 

Also on today’s show: US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield; Wounded Warrior Project campaigner Jose Ramos; NYC Dept. of Health Commissioner Dr. Ashwin Vasan.
