Kansas Abortion Clinic Shut Down

Kansas may not be completely free of abortion clinics, but the battle is raging for God’s will there.

A
new Kansas abortion law will close one of the state’s three remaining
abortion facilities and is likely to force a second to discontinue
providing surgical abortions. The Aid for Women clinic in Kansas City
was denied a license by the state health department last week.

However, Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri President Peter
Brownlie are optimistic following a 20-hour inspection of the
organization’s Overland Park location. “The findings of the inspection
indicate we will be in full compliance with the abortion facility
license regulations when they go into effect on July 1,” Brownlie told the Associated Press. “Thus, I believe we should be granted a license.”

Personhood Kansas weighed in on the developments. “The legislature has
passed every abortion regulation imaginable. No baby is safe from the
grasp of the abortionists until the personhood of every human being is
affirmed by law,” explains Committee Chairman Bruce Garren.

Meanwhile, Mila Means, a family practitioner who has been training to
perform abortions, revealed plans last week to form a non-profit for the
purposes of raising a million dollars and opening a new abortion
facility in Wichita.

“The requirements are not discouraging,” she says.
“There are so many redundancies that are not important for the woman’s
safety that are built into this bill specifically to deny access, and
that really makes me angry. That probably reinforced my decision to keep
working in this direction.”

Similarly, a law enacted last year in Nebraska that restricts abortion
after 20 weeks forced notorious abortionist, Leroy Carhart, to leave the
state for the less restrictive laws of Maryland. The move prompted
Planned Parenthood to announce their intentions to open six new
locations throughout the state.

“Laws that regulate abortion may temporarily disable the abortion
industry, but they do not end it. Anyone with the resources to do so can
and will continue to kill children in our state,” continues Garren.
“The people of Kansas deserve to have their voices heard, and we renew
our call to recognize the God-given and inalienable rights of the
preborn.”
