62% : Anti-abortion groups in Kentucky said they were disappointed in the results but the executive director of the Family Foundation pointed out that abortion bans remain in place and voters again backed "pro-life legislative majorities" in state government.
52% : "I think that Republicans really discounted that ... abortion is an economic agenda, a freedom agenda, and people really showed out to support choice," he said.
49% : On Tuesday, voters approved language that would explicitly guarantee access to abortion and contraception in the state constitution.
48% : Nationally, about two-thirds of voters say abortion should be legal in most or all cases, according to AP VoteCast, an expansive survey of over 90,000 voters across the country.
46% :California already had passed several measures aimed at easing access to abortion and set aside millions of taxpayer dollars to help pay for some out-of-state abortion travel.
43% : In all, it was a dramatic illustration of how the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in June to eliminate the nationwide right to abortion has galvanized voters who support women's right to choose.
40% : It puts a definitive end to a 1931 ban on abortion that had been blocked in court but could have been revived.
40% : The ban faces a legal challenge presently before the state Supreme Court, and the amendment's rejection leaves open the possibility that the court could declare abortion a state right.
37% : The Kentucky result spurned the state's Republican-led Legislature, which has imposed a near-total ban on abortion and put the proposed state constitutional amendment on the ballot.
32% : At a elementary school in Simpsonville, a small town outside of Louisville, 71-year-old Republican voter Jim Stewart said he voted for Paul, but chose no on the amendment, even though he's opposed to abortion.
30% : Only about 1 in 10 say abortion should be illegal in all cases.
