Kansas House Committee Pushes More Abortion Restrictions

(AP) – A Kansas House committee has endorsed legislation meant to ensure the state doesn’t subsidize abortions even indirectly through tax credits and deductions.

The Federal and State Affairs Committee advanced the bill Thursday after adding language addressing concerns from the University of Kansas Medical Center. Officials of the medical school worried that doctors in residency wouldn’t be able to obtain abortion training and its accreditation would be in danger.

The committee’s action sends the bill to the House, where it is likely to pass.

Kansas doesn’t subsidize abortions directly, but abortion opponents want to make sure that people can’t deduct abortion-related expenses from their state taxes.

Abortion rights advocates see the measure as too sweeping and likely to be challenged in court.
