Abortion Foes Not Resting

KSCB News - December 30, 2011 8:11 am

Abortion opponents in Kansas aren’t resting
after a string of legislative victories at the start of Gov. Sam
Brownback’s administration.
But the proposals they’ll pursue most aggressively in 2012
aren’t likely to be as eye-catching.
Anti-abortion leaders in the Republican-controlled Legislature
say they want to strengthen legal protections for health care
professionals who want to avoid participating in abortions or
dispensing abortion-inducing drugs. They hope to prevent even
indirect taxpayer support for abortions.
Some abortion opponents anticipate interest in trying to
prohibit abortion after the first detectable fetal heartbeat or a
measure declaring that life begins when an egg is fertilized. But
lawmakers and Kansans for Life want to concentrate on measures that
are more likely to pass.
Abortion rights supporters say they’re anticipating more attacks
on access to abortion.
