The override of Governor Bob Holden’s veto of the bill requiring a 24-hour waiting period for any woman wanting an abortion doesn’t sit well with pro-choice supporters. In the time leading up to the eventual override of the veto, abortion rights groups had rallied at the State Capitol and had lobbied lawmakers in hopes of persuading them to reject the effort to override. The legislative push went down to defeat, so Peter Brownlie, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, says it’s time to try another approach – the courts. He says legal action is being planned because the legislation puts an undue burden on women and is unconstitutional. Having cleared the General Assembly, the legislation is scheduled to take effect next month.
