Bill to Restrict Late-Term Abortions Filed in KS House

A bill filed in the Kansas House would remove an exemption from the state’s ban on late-term abortions. Although late-term abortions are restricted, an exemption allows the procedure to take place if having the baby would damage or impair the mental health of the mother. Representative Steve Huebert, a Valley Center Republican, believes that exemption is being overused. Huebert authored the legislation. He says the bill passed the house last year, but wasn’t taken up in the Senate.

Huebert is hoping the bill will get more traction this session, with a Republican governor in office. He believes the bill will be challenged in the courts if it passes.
