The vote was 82-43 Friday. The bill would impose new reporting requirements on providers and allow patients and others to sue them over potentially illegal late-term abortions.
Supporters hoped the Senate also would pass the bill by Friday, before legislators began their annual spring break.
The bill says doctors performing late-term abortions must give detailed medical reasons for them in reports to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
Also, if a woman or girl came to believe her late-term abortion was illegal, she, her husband or parents could sue the doctor for damages.
