TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas House committee is preparing to act
on a bill aimed at preventing the state from indirectly subsidizing
abortions through tax credits or deductions.

Wednesday's agenda for the Federal and State Affairs Committee
included a vote on the measure, which would make several changes in
state tax laws, all designed to cut off indirect support for
abortions.

For example, people who deduct medical expenses from their
income taxes couldn't include abortion expenses in the calculation.
A nonprofit organization that provides abortion services would have
to pay the state sales tax on what it buys, unlike other
nonprofits.

Also, the measure would prohibit public schools from using
materials in human sexuality classes from groups that provide
abortion services.
