Kansas lawmakers approve small abortion changes

KSAL StaffApril 5, 2014

The Kansas Legislature has approved abortion legislation that addresses legal issues raised in state and federal lawsuits filed by abortion providers.

The Senate passed the bill Saturday on an 34-6 vote. The House had approved it Friday.

The measure goes next to Gov. Sam Brownback.

Abortion opponents have said the bill makes minor changes in existing laws rather than setting new policy. Planned Parenthood officially is neutral on it.

The bill revises a requirement that the home pages of abortion providers’ websites link to a state health department site with information about pregnancy and fetal development. Providers would no longer have to say that the state’s information is accurate and objective.

The measure also revises language in Kansas laws on medical emergencies in which abortion restrictions are waived.
