Judge Approves Narrowing of Kansas Abortion Lawsuit

KSAL StaffAugust 12, 2013

A federal judge has narrowed Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit against a new Kansas abortion law to a single requirement dealing with providers’ websites.

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Vratil on Monday approved an agreement filed last week between attorneys for Planned Parenthood and the state.

Planned Parenthood will drop its challenge to provisions of the law that took effect in July requiring abortion providers to give patients information with certain statements the providers find objectionable.

The state agrees that providers are complying with those provisions if they give patients access to materials from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

The only remaining issue is a new rule that the home pages of providers’ websites link to a department site on abortion and say the material is accurate.
