KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Many people not only in community but also nationally are still reacting to Kansas voters striking down Amendment 2.

Kansas City, Missouri Mayor Quinton Lucas also sent tweets congratulating those who fought strike down Amendment 2 in Kansas.

Lucas also tweeted another tweet with the caption "Trust Women."

The Kansas City Current also released a statement on their official Twitter account, tweeting they were encouraged by the outcome of the results.

The Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas released a statement on Wednesday, saying they were disappointed by the results.

"It saddens us to see the continued injustice for the most vulnerable among us, the preborn child, and the loss of protections for women who are vulnerable due to unplanned or challenging pregnancy," the statement reads. "Unfortunately, we were not able to overcome the millions spent by the abortion industry to mislead Kansans about the amendment, nor the overwhelming bias of the secular press whose failure to report clearly on the true nature of the amendment served to advance the cause of the abortion industry."

"The pro-life community persevered through 50 years of Roe. In Kansas, we will continue our defense of the dignity and sanctity of all human life. Life will be victorious!"
