House Committee To Vote On Anti-Abortion Bill

KSCB News - February 20, 2012 8:39 am

A legislative proposal designed to prevent Kansas from subsidizing abortions even indirectly through tax credits or deductions is expected to clear a committee in the state House.

The Federal and State Affairs Committee planned to vote Monday on the bill, which also rewrites the state’s so-called informed consent law, requiring doctors to provide certain information before terminating a woman’s pregnancy. It would require doctors to allow their patients to hear a fetal heartbeat.

The committee has an anti-abortion majority, and if it endorses the measure as expected, it would go to the House, where abortion opponents also have a sizeable majority.

The measure also would prohibit schools from incorporating materials for any group that provides abortion services into classes that deal with human sexuality or sexually transmitted diseases.
