Kansas governor signs nation's 1st ban on abortion procedure

Wednesday, April 8, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- Kansas became the first state Tuesday to ban a common second-trimester abortion procedure that critics describe as dismembering a fetus, the Associate Press reported.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, a strong abortion opponent, signed a bill imposing the ban, and the new law takes effect July 1. He and the National Right to Life Committee, which drafted the measure, said they hope Kansas’ example spurs other states to enact such laws. Already, the measure has been introduced in Missouri, Oklahoma and South Carolina.

“This law has the power to transform the landscape of abortion policy in the United States,” committee president Carol Tobias said in a statement. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/national/article17815550.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
