Kansas pro-lifer describes bill before legislature

Kansas lawmakers are gaining support among fellow legislators and the public to ban a standard form of abortion in most states. 

It's the nation's first-ever bill to ban the particular form of terminating the lives of pre-born babies.

Kathy Ostrowski is with Kansans for Life and attended recent hearings.

"It is a Ban Abortion by Dismemberment (SB95)," she tells OneNewsNow. "Dismemberment is the standard way that abortion is done on unborn children from 13 to 22 weeks in the state of Kansas."

Most of the testimony has been highly supportive of the ban, especially when citing medical information that the babies can feel pain.

Ostrowski says only four opponents showed up at a recent hearing, including one from Planned Parenthood and one from a Wichita abortion clinic.

"And basically they skirted the very essence of the bill, which is the tearing limb from limb of unborn children," the pro-lifer recalls.

Instead, she says, the abortion supporters talked about the bill as a "restriction on a certain type of abortion," and claimed the state legislature don't have the authority to do that.  

They also testified that the legislature had more serious concerns to deal with such as the state budget.

Kansans for Life notes that more and more in both houses are endorsing it so Ostrowski expects it to soon pass and be signed into law by Gov. Sam Brownback.
