Government turns a blind eye as abortionists in this state refuse to follow the law

The battle for life has moved to the states.

And it’s at a fever pitch.

Now the government has turned a blind eye as abortionists in this state refuse to follow the law.

Kansas is at the center of a heated battle over abortion regulations, as providers gear up to expand an ongoing lawsuit challenging several restrictions. 

This new front in the abortion debate highlights the relentless efforts of pro-abortion advocates to push back against legislative measures designed to protect life and ensure informed medical decisions.

A new Kansas law, set to take effect on July 1, requires women seeking abortions to disclose their primary reason for the procedure to their doctors and the state health department. 

Abortion providers argue that this law is unconstitutional and infringes on patient privacy. 

“Conversations that happen in the exam room are private,” said Emily Wales, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Great Plains, in an interview. 

“They’re in no way something that the Legislature should have access to.”

Basically. . .they don’t want to know why women are killing their children. 

These abortionists want as little information as possible in order to carry out their cruel acts. 

The Center for Reproductive Rights and several abortion providers announced their legal challenge shortly after Republican lawmakers narrowly overrode Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly’s veto of the law. 

Despite the inability to ban abortion outright due to state constitutional protections, Kansas pro-life groups have secured significant legislative victories. 

These include measures that aim to protect both unborn children and the well-being of women considering abortion. 

Kansas voters, however, rejected an attempt to remove these constitutional protections in 2022, showcasing the ongoing tension between pro-life advocates and abortion proponents.

In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, Kansas has seen a surge in out-of-state residents seeking abortions, leading to increased demand at local clinics. 

Planned Parenthood has responded by announcing plans to open a new clinic in Pittsburg, Kansas, further intensifying the state’s abortion debate.

Abortion providers are now asking the Johnson County District Court to add their challenge of the new data law to an existing lawsuit against several other state abortion restrictions. 

This lawsuit has already resulted in a temporary block of certain restrictions, such as a 24-hour waiting period. 

Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach, who is defending the state’s laws, criticized this move, stating, “It would be highly improper to add a challenge against an entirely new law to an existing lawsuit that was filed a year ago. The state will oppose any such effort.”

The law in question mandates that abortion providers inquire about the most relevant reason for a patient’s decision to seek an abortion from a list of 11 possible reasons, including financial inability to support a child or pregnancy resulting from rape or incest. 

While the law states that answering the question is optional, there was a rejected amendment that would have clearly informed patients of their right to refuse.

The law also requires providers to collect additional information, such as recent experiences of domestic violence and the safety and stability of their living conditions. 

This data is to be included in the state health department’s biannual abortion statistics report.

The abortion data law has been a major priority for Kansans for Life, an anti-abortion advocacy group. 

Proponents argue that this information could help lawmakers and organizations address underlying issues like financial insecurity that may lead women to seek abortions. 

Danielle Underwood, communications director for Kansans for Life, denounced the challenge to the law, highlighting the hypocrisy of the abortion industry. 

“We’re never surprised by the hypocrisy of the abortion industry, as their preferred think tanks ask these same questions of women,” she noted.

Underwood’s comments underscore a critical point for pro-life advocates: the importance of addressing the social circumstances surrounding abortion. 

For years, pro-abortion activists have claimed that pro-life groups do not do enough to support women facing unplanned pregnancies. 

This law aims to gather crucial data that could inform more effective support systems.

For pro-lifers, this ongoing battle in Kansas is a stark reminder of the importance of continued advocacy and legislative action to protect the unborn. 

The fight is far from over, and each legislative victory represents a step towards a society that values and protects life at all stages.
