- The Attorney General Derek Schmidt (R) has announced that Kansas will appeal a federal judge ruling preventing the state of defunding Planned Parenthood. A US District Judge issued an injunction earlier this year. Secretary for Kansas Department of Health and Environment Dr. Robert Moser said of the appeal, “Title X was not intended to be an entitlement program for Planned Parenthood. Other providers are already offering a fuller spectrum of health care for Kansas patients. This highly unusual ruling implies a private organization has a right to taxpayer subsidy. The people of Kansas disagree.”
- Kansas’ legislature passed legislation that will prohibit general health insurance plans in the state of Kansas from covering “termination of pregnancy.” Per the legislation, abortions can only be covered by insurance in the case of an emergency where the life of the mother is at risk. I am not sure yet if Governor Brownback (R) will sign the bill or not.
