Abortion Laws Challenged in Kansas

KSAL StaffOctober 21, 2015

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Court of Appeals is taking the rare step of having all of its judges hear a legal challenge to a ban on a common second-trimester abortion procedure to speed up the court’s review.

Supporters and critics of the law said Wednesday the court is signaling that it views the case as important and wants it to go quickly to the Kansas Supreme Court to settle whether the state can enforce the ban.

The law was supposed to take effect in July, but a Shawnee County judge blocked it while a lawsuit against it proceeds. Attorney General Derek Schmidt appealed.

Oral arguments in the case are set for Dec. 9.

Court officials believe it is the first time since 1989 that all judges will participate in such a hearing.
