Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius vetoed a bill on Friday that would have required the state to collect more data on late-term abortions. The legislation would required that the state be provided information on the woman’s health, fetal abnormalities and the physician who authorized the abortion. Proponents of the legislation said more information was needed to be collected to understand why women seek late-term abortions and whether physicians are following state law. Opponents called the legislations an attempt to harass doctors and clinics. Source. Jim Sullinger, Kansas City Star, kansascity.com.
