Senate Committee Approves Fetal Pain, Parental Consent Bills

March 22, 2011

The Senate Judiciary Committee last night approved two bills designed to ensure that Kansas is never again a destination of choice for those seeking late-term abortions.  The Committee passed Fetal Pain and Parental Consent bills, which now await consideration by the full Senate.  The House has already approved both bills.

Unfortunately, the critically important abortion clinic licensure bill was not considered by the Committee, which is not expected to meet again this year.
