Kan. Gov. Signs Abortion Restrictions into Law

Ad Feedback

Gov. Sam Brownback has signed a bill into law that restricts Kansas abortion clinics by requiring annual, unannounced inspections.

The state will also impose new health and safety rules and prevent abortion clinics from prescribing pregnancy-terminating drugs to patients over the phone. The law takes effect July 1.

"In order to make money doing abortions, they have to do a lot of them. Medical regulations slow them down," Mary Kay Culp, executive director for Kansans for Life, said.

Critics of the new law say it could put the state's abortion clinics out of business. But supporters say the changes are needed to protect patients.

"Anything we could do to require the clinics to care more about women than about their profit margins is a good thing," Culp said.
