Voters in 3 States Will Face Anti-Abortion Ballot Initiatives This Nov.
NYT Editorial: Abortion Rights on the Ballot, Again:
Once again this year, opponents of women’s reproductive rights have managed to get initiatives aimed at ending or limiting abortion rights on ballots — in South Dakota, Colorado and California. These measures, which violate women’s privacy and threaten their health, have implications far beyond those states. If voters approve them, they will become a weapon in the right-wing campaign to overturn Roe v Wade.
