This session’s abortion legislation about ‘tweaks’

KSAL StaffFebruary 9, 2014

Abortion is perpetually on the Kansas Legislature’s agenda, and a House committee plans to vote this week on legislation pushed by abortion opponents.

But supporters describe the measure before the House Federal and State Affairs Committee as technical legislation that makes small changes in existing laws rather than setting new policy. Planned Parenthood officially is neutral.

The bill tackles two issues raised by abortion providers in state and federal lawsuits challenging anti-abortion laws enacted last year.

One piece 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.

The bill also revises language in various provisions of state law dealing with medical emergencies in which abortion restrictions are waived.
