TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas legislators are moving to block tax breaks for abortion providers but some lawmakers want to ban most abortions, even early in pregnancy.

A bill passed by the House and likely to be debated by the Senate next week would not only keep abortion providers from claiming a wide range of tax exemptions and credits but bar them from providing sex education materials and instructors to public schools.

Some Kansas legislators want to prohibit most abortions after a doctor can detect a fetal heartbeat, which can occur as early as the sixth week of pregnancy. The House Federal and State Affairs Committee had a hearing on such a measure Tuesday.

The hearing came the same day North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple signed a ban on such abortions into law.
