Four Anti-Choice bills under consideration in Kansas Legislature
Tiffany Campbell and her husband were excited about their 2006 pregnancy.
But after discovering that the twins in her womb had twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome — one baby was receiving too much blood and one too little — they decided to abort one because of the slight hope that the other would then survive.
The decision was excruciating, Campbell told the Kansas Senate’s Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
“It was the most difficult decision of our lives,” she said.
But, she added, the decision would have been worse if it had been criminalized.
Among the four abortion-related bills being heard in the committee is one that includes restrictions that would make abortions illegal after 22 weeks of gestation, the age at which a fetus could survive outside of the womb.
