Kansas House Sends Anti-Abortion Bill To Senate
05/08/2012

The Kansas House has approved a bill
designed to prevent the state from subsidizing abortions even
indirectly through tax breaks, but the measure's future in the
Senate appears uncertain.
     The bill was adopted by an 88-31 vote on Monday in the House. It
would prohibit Kansas taxpayers from claiming abortion expenses
under a deduction for medical costs when filing their income taxes.
     It also would deny tax breaks to abortion providers, such as an
exemption to the sales tax that nonprofit groups claim when
purchasing goods. The measure also prohibits state employees from
performing abortions on state property or state time.
     The House has a strong anti-abortion majority. Abortion
opponents also appear to have a majority in the Senate, but that
chamber hasn't reviewed the legislation.
