Kansas House Okays Two Pro-Life Measures

HB 2035, which combines a new parental consent requirement for minors with an array of Pro-Life provisions passed and vetoed repeatedly in recent years, was approved 96-25.  The Kansas Catholic Conference previously testified in support of this legislation.
HB 2218 would prohibit abortions during and after twenty weeks, measured from conception, on the grounds that unborn children can feel pain at that time.  It was passed 91-30.  The Conference testified on this legislation as well.
Both bills will now move to the Senate.  Governor Brownback has indicated that he will sign any Pro-Life legislation that reaches his desk.
