TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas House committee has made quick work of approving abortion legislation that addresses legal issues raised in state and federal lawsuits filed by abortion providers. The Federal and State Affairs Committee's discussion of the bill Tuesday lasted only seven minutes. Abortion opponents described the measure as making only small changes in existing laws rather than setting new policy. Planned Parenthood officially is neutral. One part of the bill revises a requirement that the home pages of abortion providers' websites link to a state health department site with information about pregnancy and fetal development. Providers would no longer have to say that the state's information is accurate and objective. The bill also revises language in various provisions of state law dealing with medical emergencies in which abortion restrictions are waived.
