TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A push by abortion opponents to ensure that
Kansas doesn't have even indirect involvement in terminating
pregnancies has legislators focusing on the state medical school.
The University of Kansas Medical Center would be affected by two
separate but similar measures.
One is a provision in a proposed state budget facing a final
House vote Monday. Another is a bill endorsed by a House committee
aimed at making sure the state doesn't subsidize abortions
indirectly through tax credits or deductions.
Both measures say no health care services provided by a state
agency or state employees while on the job could include abortion,
except to save a woman's life. Doctors in training at the Medical
Center in Kansas City, Kan., are considered state employees.
