Kansas Lawmakers Advance Abortion Resrictions
In theocrat run Kansas you can see the portents of what would transpire if religious zealots were given even a half a reign to run our country.
The Republican-controlled Kansas House of Representatives voted to advance legislation adding new restrictions to abortions in the state Tuesday.
The legislation would end the use of tax exemptions for payments for abortions, while at the same time requiring doctors to inform women that abortions may cause breast cancer, a claim that has been disputed by the medical community. The bill also defines life as beginning at fertilization and would prohibit all state employees from performing abortions during the work day. The bill now advances to the GOP-controlled state Senate, where it is expected to pass, then be signed by Gov. Sam Brownback (R), who has said he will sign any anti-abortion bill that reaches his desk.
“I am disappointed but not surprised by the House’s vote,” Kansas NOW lobbyist Elise Higgins told The Huffington Post. “I am extremely disappointed and saddened by their decision not to extend an exemption for rape and incest.”
