Kansas Legislature Passes Fourth Major Abortion Restriction This Session

Miami Herald/Wichita Eagle: Kansas legislature passes fourth abortion bill this session, by Dion Lefler:

After working through the night and with several stops and starts, both houses of the Legislature passed a bill that will require most women who want an abortion to pay the full cost of the procedure themselves.

House Bill 2075 bars insurance companies from including abortion coverage in their regular health coverage plans. Under the bill’s provisions, general insurance plans could cover termination of pregnancy only in emergency situations to save the life of the mother.

It is the fourth major anti-abortion law to pass the Legislature this session. . . .
