Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback Signs Abortion Laws

Wednesday, 13 Apr 2011 03:53 PM

The wave of anti-abortion state laws that legislatures across the country are adopting foreshadow a challenge to Roe v. Wade, including two Kansas laws Gov. Sam Brownback signed Tuesday, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported.

There are a slew of new state statutes that are pushing the boundaries of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, which are increasing the likelihood of a legal fight that could reach the nation’s highest court.

"I think challenges of Roe are abounding across the country," Brownback told the newspaper.

"You're seeing pro-life legislation pass in many jurisdictions across the nation."

In Kansas, the new law basically ends late-term abortion from being performed in the state.

The only exception will be to save the life of the mother or prevent substantial physical damage to the pregnant woman.

Another new law requires physicians to obtain written permission from parents or guardians before performing abortions on minors.

"The dignity of every individual in the state of Kansas, this country, the world, has been significant to me for some time," Brownback, a Topeka Republican, said.

"Whether that's somebody in Africa, somebody in prison, somebody that is unborn. To sign major pro-life legislation in a first term, I think is important and significant," Brownback added.
