TOPEKA, Kan. (CNS) — A new Kansas law banning an abortion procedure that results in dismemberment of an unborn child “has the power to transform the landscape of abortion policy in the United States,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.
Gov. Sam Brownback signed the measure April 7 during a private ceremony in Topeka.
Called the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, it is “the first of what we hope will be many state laws banning dismemberment abortions,” said Tobias.
