TOPEKA â€” The chief federal judge in Kansas refused Sunday to temporarily block parts of a new state abortion law, including a requirement that providersâ€™ websites link to a state site with information they dispute.
But U.S. District Judge Kathryn Vratilâ€™s ruling Sunday in a lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood came after a state judge ruled Friday in a separate challenge that Kansas couldnâ€™t enforce the website requirement for now. Vratil noted the previous ruling, in a case filed by two doctors, in concluding that Planned Parenthood would not suffer irreparable harm if she didnâ€™t do the same. The rule was to take effect Monday.
Under the law, a providerâ€™s home page will have to provide a link to a Kansas Department of Health and Environment site on abortion and fetal development and contain a statement that the stateâ€™s information is â€œobjectiveâ€ and â€œscientifically accurate.â€ Abortion providers object because the stateâ€™s information says that a fetus can feel pain by the 20th week of pregnancy, while the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has said thereâ€™s no evidence for such an assertion.
