Kansas Abortion Reporting Law Gets Tougher

KSCB News - January 24, 2011 3:42 pm

Kansas’ top public health officials says
abortion providers will be required to provide more details to the
state about late-term procedures that they perform.
Health and Environment Secretary Robert Moser (MOH’-shur) said
Monday his department has a new interpretation of a law requiring
physicians to file reports on each late-term abortion.
Moser tells The Associated Press that doctors must spell out the
medical reasons for aborting a viable fetus after the 21st week of
pregnancy. The law permits those abortions only when the mother’s
life is in danger or she faces major, permanent harm to her
physical or mental health.
Moser said the new interpretation is in line with the intent of
the law.
