Kansas Judge Considering Challenge to Abortion Law

KSAL StaffJune 27, 2013

A Kansas judge is considering a request from two doctors to block enforcement of sweeping new restrictions on abortion that are set to take effect Monday.

Shawnee County District Judge Rebecca Crotty heard arguments Thursday in a lawsuit filed by Drs. Herbert Hodes and Dr. Traci Nauser. The father and daughter perform abortions at their Overland Park health center.

The doctors want Crotty to put the new law on hold while their lawsuit moves forward.

Crotty did not rule from the bench on Thursday.

The new law bans sex-selection abortions and blocks tax breaks for abortion providers. It spells out what information must be provided to patients before abortions.
