"Decisive victory": Kansas residents, Biden reflect on vote to reject abortion ban

by News Update

Some Kansas residents celebrated on Tuesday night after a vote that could have given the Republican-led legislature to restrict or outright ban abortions in the state was defeated by voters, with those who voted against it giving each other hugs with others shedding tears of joy.

“We will not tolerate an extreme ban on abortions in our state,” Rachel Sweet, regional director of public policy and organizing at Planned Parenthood, told a crowd that had gathered in Wichita after the results came in.

As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 58 per cent of voters — or more than 534,000 — cast their vote against the ballot measure. Just over 374,000 — or 41.2 per cent — voted in favour.

Not everyone was celebrating however, with one man speaking on stage at a “Vote Yes” event calling it a “difficult time,” and that “we’re going to get through this difficult period.”

U.S. President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris also reflected on the vote on Wednesday, with Biden calling it a “decisive victory” and that it sent a “powerful signal” that Americans would vote in the upcoming midterm elections to protect the right to choose.

So many women celebrating killing babies, 1/2 of which would have grown into women. 22 weeks, over 5 months, pretty sure I could feel my kids moving inside my wife at that point. Can you imagine believing that a living baby, that can move around in the womb and even respond when poked by pushing back, isn’t a living human? I don’t get it.

Maria Divine Mercy is God's End Time Prophet (Book of Truth/7th Angel): Russia and China will join forces like never before, yet the West will provoke a reaction from said countries… all will lead to a World War.

The Great War is near, unfortunately, Nuclear Weapons will be used and cites in the West will be destroyed.

Woe to those that oppose the reign of the Red Dragon.

Welcome to the End Times.

I should go drinking and driving, who cares if I kill someone they got to live their life and the government will pay for my legal aid. I have the right to do whatever I want and only care about my life and my life only. How dare the government tell me when I can and can't have fun and try to force me to pay for a cab to go around having fun, this is my body my choice I get to choose what I put in my body before I drive. How dare you

Aly August 4, 2022 - 3:26 AM

This is sickening… the level of evil is unreal…. People are so deceived… Abortion is NOT birth control, if a woman doesn’t want to be pregnant and can’t “afford” to be pregnant and have a child STOP putting yourself in that situation!! Why is that so hard to comprehend??? And to top it off they use r@p€ as one of the main reasons, have they actually taken the time to research those statistics??!! R@p€ and health emergencies are on a different level, however those numbers are so low, it’s the “women” that use abortion, the murder of babies as birth control that make the loudest noise. 😢so sad… what a time to be alive…..

TLDR:
"If u sacrifice babies in ur country ima take it away from u"
-God

Jeremiah 7:31-34 ESV —
31 And they have built the high places of Topheth, which is in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, which I did not command, nor did it come into my mind. 32 Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when it will no more be called Topheth, or the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter; for they will bury in Topheth, because there is no room elsewhere. 33 And the dead bodies of this people will be food for the birds of the air, and for the beasts of the earth, and none will frighten them away. 34 And I will silence in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, for the land shall become a waste.
