Leawood Mayor Peggy Dunn appears in a new ad urging a “yes” vote on the “Value Them Both” constitutional amendment on abortion.

  • Dunn says she appeared in the ad as a private citizen, and she is not identified as Leawood’s mayor in the spot.

Why it matters: The amendment aims to nullify a 2019 Kansas Supreme Court ruling that found a right to abortion in the Kansas constitution and what voters decide could have a major impact on abortion access in Kansas in the future.
