Kansas House debating anti-abortion measure

TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas House members have rejected an attempt to narrow the scope of a bill designed to prevent the state from subsidizing abortions even indirectly through tax breaks.

The House rejected an amendment on a voice vote during a debate Friday to eliminate any provisions in the bill dealing with tax laws. It was offered by Rep. Judy Loganbill, a Wichita Democrat and abortion rights supporter.

The House is expected to vote on the bill Friday.

The measure would prevent individual income tax filers from including abortion expenses when claiming a deduction for medical costs.

It also would declare abortions are illegal if they're performed only because a woman doesn't like the gender of the fetus. It prohibits public school courses in human sexuality from using materials from groups providing abortions.

Abortion is legal in this country. It is time for all of us with brains to take back Kansas from this jihadd.

Abortion is the brutal violation of the human rights of unborn children! We need to end this brutality and bring back justice to our State and the way we can do that is to pass law like this that will outlaw the practice of sex-selection abortion which is perfectly legal in Kansas at this time! While our legislators have many issues to deal with it is high time that we do all that we can to limit abortion under the current rulings of the SCOTUS.

While worrying over this bill they talk about bring back smoking to public assembly areas. Right to life and early demise

Just goes to show you that the anti-abortion (not pro-life anymore) brownshirts will go to any lengths in their war on women.

Don't have to worry about The Guv vetoing this useless law.
