TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas House plans to debate a bill aimed at preventing the state from subsidizing abortions even indirectly through tax breaks.

The measure on Friday's agenda would prevent individual income tax filers from including abortion expenses when claiming a deduction for medical costs

It would also declare that abortions are illegal if they're performed only because a woman doesn't like the gender of the fetus. And, it bar public school courses in human sexuality from using materials from groups providing abortions.

House Speaker Mike O'Neal, a Hutchinson Republican, said a few weeks ago that he didn't intend to have an abortion debate because lawmakers were busy with other issues. But O'Neal relented Thursday, saying other lawmakers were interested in the legislation.
