A pro-life teenager going door to door in Kansas on Sunday ahead of Tuesday’s referendum on abortion was allegedly shoved in the chest and punched in the face and head by a violent abortion supporter.
The student’s name is Grace Hartsock. She was canvassing door to door to turn out Kansas voters for the Tuesday vote on the abortion law. The alleged altercation occurred when she approached a home in Overland Park, according to Students for Life.
When Hartsock knocked on the door, a woman answered who told the teen that they weren’t interested in discussing the issue.
“No, I’m sorry I don’t think you want to talk to us,” the woman told Hartsock.

As the teen turned to leave, another woman started yelling and cursing at her from within the home.
“Don’t apologize to her, mom,” the unhinged unidentified woman yelled.
The woman then followed the teen out of the house while haranguing her. Students for Life reports that she then shoved Hartsock in the chest and started hitting her in the face and head with her fists.
The girl took the beating until the violent woman’s mother forced her daughter to stop. The attacker allegedly continued to yell after she stopped hitting the teen, telling Hartsock, “I hope you get raped” and “I hope you get run over by a car.”
The Summer of Rage continues

According to the Christian Post, the woman also threw a piece of bread in the girl’s face.
The teenager was only able to catch the final seconds of the confrontation on her phone, just long enough for the woman to flip her off and yell, “F*** you!” She then stormed back to the house past her mother who was telling her to stop it.
Hartsock has filed a complaint against the woman with the Leewood Police Department over the incident.
“Since she was struck, the student is experiencing headaches and body soreness, and Students for Life Action has connected her with an attorney. She and Students for Life Action are considering a legal response,” SFL spokeswoman Kristi Hamrick told Fox News.
Kansas voters are casting their ballots Tuesday on an amendment to the state constitution that will allow state lawmakers to regulate abortion access. It will be the first state in the nation to hold a vote on abortion access since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
Early voting in Wichita this morning. These are things you do not see in Kansas: A long line for early voting in a primary election during a non-presidential year election. Abortion rights in Kansas are on the ballot. #RoeVsWade #kansas pic.twitter.com/CaQdxT6nFv

The “Value Them Both” amendment is meant to “affirm there is no Kansas constitutional right to abortion or to require the government funding of abortion, and would reserve to the people of Kansas, through their elected state legislators, the right to pass laws to regulate abortion, including, but not limited to, in circumstances of pregnancy resulting from rape or incest, or when necessary to save the life of the mother.”
The referendum is taking place nearly three years after the state Supreme Court ruled that the Kansas constitution protects the right to an abortion in 2019.
Kansas is a red state and the legislature will more than likely pass restrictions on abortion following the referendum if the amendment passes. The GOP supermajority in the state legislature ensured the referendum would be voted upon following the 2019 state Supreme Court ruling and the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
