New Abortion Clinic Rules Face Legal Challenge

The final new rules for facilities that provide abortions in Kansas are too much like the original ones. That’s according to the few places in the state practicing the procedure. Attorneys with two providers have announced they plan to challenge the new rules before they take effect in mid-November. Bonnie Scott Jones, a lawyer with the coming case, says amendments the state recently made to the licensing regulations still discriminate.

A federal judge temporarily enjoined the state’s temporary rules this summer, amid legal challenges by the two abortion providers now planning to challenge the permanent ones. Last session, the state enacted a law, mandating new licensing regulations for abortion services. KDHE has said it must do its job within the law in designing and moving forward with the rules, and that they promote patient safety.
