Laws to restrict abortion in Kansas have been a high-profile issue this year. But Kansas isn’t the only state where there are efforts to tighten abortion regulations. NARAL (ney-rawl) is an abortion rights group that lobbies nationwide. Spokesperson Ted Miller says there’s been an uptick in state legislatures this year to restrict abortion.
In Kansas, the Legislature has passed bills to restrict abortion in recent years, but they were vetoed by previous governors. Republican Governor Sam Brownback has signed the abortion bills sent to him by the Legislature since he took office in January.
