Will Planned Parenthood’s Video Trouble Push Spread of Kansas Tough Abortion Laws?
July 23, 2015

AP) – Abortion opponents are using questions about Planned Parenthood’s handling of fetal tissue to bolster arguments that other states should follow Kansas in approving a ban on a common second trimester procedure.
But abortion rights supporters Thursday decried what they saw as another episode in an ongoing campaign to limit access to abortion services.
Anti-abortion activists have released two videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing how they provide organs from aborted fetuses for research.
Abortion opponents said prohibiting a common second-trimester procedure that they describe as dismembering a fetus would restrict potential trafficking in fetal tissue.
Kansas enacted the nation’s first such ban earlier this year, but a state district court judge last month temporarily blocked it from taking effect. It embodies model legislation from the National Right to Life Committee.
