Tales from Gilead

Kansas Republicans—you know, the folks who preach endlessly about getting the government off the backs of the people—have passed a mammoth anti-abortion bill that, among other things, legally requires doctors to lie to their patients.

The bill contains provisions to prohibit tax deductions for abortion insurance coverage and abortion services; to provide for a sales tax on abortion; to establish a personhood stance for when life begins; to limit late-term abortions; to prohibit state employees from performing abortions during the workday; and to mandate that doctors tell women that abortion causes breast cancer….*

The bill also allows doctors to withhold medical information from a woman if it might lead her to have an abortion. It prevents medical professionals from facing a medical malpractice suit in the event that withholding the information adversely affects the health of the mother or child.

Governor Sam Brownback says he will sign the bill, which must still clear the Senate, but he hasn’t bothered to read it. (Sound familiar?)

A blatant falsehood, still peddled by the “pro-life” crowd.
