Kansas Committee Passes Comprehensive Pro-Life Abortion BillKathy Ostrowski | Topeka, KS | LifeNews.com | 3/16/12 11:31 AM
HB 2598, the Pro-Life Protections Act, passed favorably out of the Kansas House Federal State Affairs committee today, legislation reflecting the state’s right to promote childbirth, not abortion, and to uphold the dignity of the human person.
The bill had several sections:
- removes taxpayer funding and tax exemptions from abortion and its provision;
- secures further respect for the unborn by broadening “wrongful death” actions for the unborn throughout gestation, instead of just after viability (matching criminal protection under Alexa’s Law) and by barring “wrongful death” and “wrongful life” lawsuits;
- promotes medically accurate information in elementary and secondary schools and in Kansas’ informed consent (Woman’s Right to Know) materials which must be accessed prior to abortion.
