Kansas Legislature Approves Groundbreaking Dismemberment Abortion Ban

The Kansas House of Representatives today approved, on a voice vote, the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, groundbreaking legislation that will prohibit brutal dilation & evacuation (D&E) dismemberment abortions in the state. The state Senate previously approved the bill, 31-9, in February.
