Kansas Court Blocks Arbitrary, Medically Unnecessary Abortion Restrictions that Infringe on Constitutional Rights

The laws blocked today also made abortion care harder to access by imposing arbitrary waiting periods that delayed care.

On the First Anniversary of the Overturning of Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood Great Plains Persists in Providing Care in Amid Overwhelming Demand

Wade – eliminating fifty years of federal protection for the right to safe, legal abortion – Planned Parenthood Great Plains (PPGP) persists as a regional care provider.

Kansas Providers Challenge Inaccurate, Dangerous Abortion Restrictions in Court

Today, Kansas abortion providers filed a lawsuit in state court challenging several onerous, harmful restrictions. These laws make abortion care harder to access by creating delays and forcing providers to relay inaccurate, misleading information that threatens patients’ health and undermines medical ethics. One such restriction—scheduled to take effect July 1—forces providers to falsely tell their patients that a medication abortion can be “reversed,” an unproven claim not based on medicine or science. That law was enacted by state legislators soon after the Governor vetoed the measure and eight months after Kansans overwhelmingly rejected efforts to eliminate the fundamental right to abortion under the state constitution.

Oklahoma Supreme Court Strikes Down Vigilante Abortion Bans; Pre-Roe Ban Remains in Effect

Today, the Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down two citizen-enforced abortion bans mirroring Texas’ S.B. 8. The two copycat bans were passed in 2022 before Roe v. Wade was overturned. While abortion remains largely unavailable in Oklahoma and the state’s pre-Roe ban remains in effect, today’s ruling ensures that Oklahoma's vigilante bans cannot hold doctors back from providing life-saving care.

Court Again Blocks Missouri Attorney General Attempt to Effectively Ban Gender-Affirming Care; Rules Immediate and Real Risk of Harm to Patients

Today, a Missouri court again blocked Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey’s unprecedented use of an emergency rule to prohibit gender-affirming care for people of all ages. The court in its ruling found there is an immediate and real risk of harm if the rule were to go into effect – both to patients needing care and providers who offer these critical services. This comes just days after the court ordered a temporary stay of the egregious regulations only hours before the rule would have prevented many Missourians from accessing life-saving care.

U.S. Supreme Court mifepristone case could make abortions even harder to access in Kansas City

March 27, 2024 • KCUR

A case before the U.S. Supreme Court could drastically restrict access to medication abortions, now the most common form of abortion in the United States.

That could further limit abortion options for Missouians, who must cross the state line to get a legal abortion. It could also increase the number of patients coming to Kansas, trying to escape abortion bans that have swept through the region since the high court overturned Roe v. Wade in June 2022.

US Supreme Court to hear abortion medication case. How will that affect KS and MO?

March 25, 2024 • The Kansas City Star

In recent years, Kansas has become a major access point for abortion in the Great Plains.

Clinics in the state are seeing an increasing number of patients and the majority of them are getting abortions via medication. But that method could be at risk of tighter restrictions.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case challenging the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the drug – specifically whether doctors should be allowed to prescribe the drug without seeing the patient in person and whether it can be sent over the mail.
