The Kansas Legislature meets January through May.
As bills with implications for the protection of innocent human life are proposed, KFL will post here describing them. When a decision has been made by the KFL board of directors to support, oppose or remain neutral on a bill, that position will be posted here.
We will post updates as bills move through the processes of the Kansas State Legislature. Read below for the current status on our 2023 Legislative Agenda Items:
- House Bill 2313: Creating the born-alive infants protection act to provide legal protections for infants who are born alive regardless of the intent of the delivery. This bill was vetoed by the Governor, but was overridden with bipartisan support in both chambers. The bill now becomes law.
- House Bill 2264: Abortion Pill Reversal: requiring notification to patients that the effects of a medication abortion may be reversible. This bill was vetoed by the Governor, but was overridden with bipartisan support in both chambers. The bill now becomes law.
- House Bill 2429: Establishing the alternatives to abortion program to provide resources and promote childbirth to women facing unplanned pregnancies. This bill was vetoed by the Governor, but was overridden in both chambers. The bill now becomes law.
- Senate Bill 96: Provides a tax credit for donations made to pregnancy centers. This bill passed both chambers with bipartisan support. It now heads to the Governor’s desk where she can either sign the bill into law, let it go into law without her signature, or veto it.
