Kansas Senate Fails To Override Abortion Bill Veto

KSCB News - May 6, 2010 12:00 am

The Kansas Senate has failed to override Gov. Mark Parkinson’s veto of a bill rewriting the state’s late-term abortion laws.

The vote Wednesday was 26-14 to override, one vote short of the two-thirds majority needed to overturn Parkinson’s action. Abortion opponents did not expect to ask the Senate to reconsider its action.

The bill would have required doctors to report more detailed information to the state about the late-term abortions they perform.

It also would have allowed patients to sue abortion providers if they or their families had evidence that a late-term procedure violated Kansas law.
