TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) The Kansas House gave first-round approval Monday to a bill that would require medical facilities and doctors to inform women that some medically induced abortions could be reversed if a doctor intervenes.
Opponents of the bill say the reversal method is scientifically unproven and disputed in medical circles, while supporters contend women should be made aware of the option.
The bill passed by a voice vote after more than two hours of debate. After a final vote Tuesday, its expected to head to the Senate, The Kansas City Star reported.
