              This photo shows a sign for a new Kansas group, Keep Kansas Free, seeking to push voters who support abortion rights to go to the polls, on a podium for a news conference, Thursday, Oct. 13, 2022, outside the statehouse in Topeka, Kan. The group wants voters to oppose constitutional changes on the ballot, retain Kansas Supreme Court justices and other judges on the bench and elect candidates who support abortion rights, arguing that all three will protect abortion access.
