Kansas passed pro-life laws in 2011

Published on


Kansas no longer allows abortions for unborn children who feel pain. The only exception is if the mother’s life is in danger. (HB 2218)


In Kansas, girls under 18 must get their parents’ permission for an abortion. Some exceptions apply to single parents or couples who aren’t married. The court can’t just rubber-stamp the girl’s claim that she’s mature enough or that involving her parents is against her interest. The bypassing judge may do more evaluation and must report suspected child abuse. The pregnant woman and her family can sue for illegal late-term abortions. (HB 2035)


Kansas hospitals, surgical centers, and private offices that do elective abortions must get an annual license. Each abortion must be done by a state-licensed physician with local hospital privileges. Abortions by pills must be done in person. An ultrasound is required before an abortion. The woman can get a copy of the image. (H Sub SB 36)


Private health insurance may not provide coverage for abortions, except in cases where the life of the mother is at risk. Insurers may offer riders for abortion coverage, which can be purchased separately. Kansas has a policy of excluding abortion coverage from future “Obamacare” health exchange plans, scheduled for 2014 (HB 2075).


Daniel Miller is responsible for nearly all of National Right to Life News' political writing.

With the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, Daniel Miller developed a deep obsession with U.S. politics that has never let go of the political scientist. Whether it's the election of Joe Biden, the midterm elections in Congress, the abortion rights debate in the Supreme Court or the mudslinging in the primaries - Daniel Miller is happy to stay up late for you.

Daniel was born and raised in New York. After living in China, working for a news agency and another stint at a major news network, he now lives in Arizona with his two daughters.
