TOPEKA, Kansas: At least eight statewide ballot measures dealing with the issue of abortion are being proposed for a 2012 ballot for voters' decision. One of those measures is the Kansas right to life amendment, currently still being considered in 2011 state legislative session.

The measure would end abortion throughout the state and recognize "the right to life of every human being." House Representative Randy Garber stated he would introduce the measure during session. The amendment is the only proposal in the legislature that would end the practice of abortion in the state, according to reports.[1]

A 2/3rds vote in both chambers of the Kansas State Legislature is required to refer an amendment to the ballot. If the legislature approves of the amendment, the measure would appear on the November 2012 general election.[1]
