Lawmakers Introduce Abortion Bill

A coalition of conservative House lawmakers has introduced a bill that would tighten the state’s restrictions on abortion. It would also require parental consent for a minor to obtain the procedure. State Representative Lance Kinzer, of Olathe, is one of the bill's authors. He says the legislation would require the consent of at least one parent, and in some cases both parents, for a girl under 18 to get an abortion.

The bill would also require more reporting to the state about late-term abortion procedures. The legislation would allow local prosecutors to have access to those state records. Kinzer says parts of the bill have passed in previous years, but were vetoed by Democratic governors.
