Kansas pro-lifers battled against inclusion of abortion coverage (see here and here ) when the state Regents in 2006 restructured health insurance for public universities at Emporia, Fort Hays, K-State (Manhattan), KU (Lawrence), KU-Med, Pittsburg and Wichita.

But abortion coverage still got in there.

The current United Healthcare policy, designed for undergrads, graduate students and international students, forbids coverage for elective abortion while, in the section on allowable pregnancy complications, covers “therapeutic” abortions.

“Therapeutic” abortion was the old term for any abortion a practitioner will sign off on.  This was the very loophole warned about during debate on the Senate floor.

While elective abortion is supposedly not covered, there are no legal definitions distinguishing between “elective” and “therapeutic” abortions.

That leaves us with abortionists deciding what to call therapeutic, and in Kansas, we have a nasty history of abortions being obtained for specious reasons, according to expert witness, Dr. Paul McHugh.

This is taxpayer money being siphoned off without anyone reviewing the receipts.

Kansas has never had a pro-life State Insurance Commissioner to ferret out this abuse, and our current state Supreme Court (particularly Justice Carol Beier) halted the only Attorney General who ever attempted to keep abortionists honest.

All the more reason a pro-life Governor and more pro-life state representatives need to be elected.

Abortionist Kris Neuhaus testified at Tiller's trial that she approved "mental health" post-viability abortions by phone

Kansans for Life congratulates Rep. Steve Huebert (R-Valley Center) on winning first round approval Monday of a ban on abortions done for “mental health” of the mother when the unborn child is viable.  UPDATE: In final action, HB 2166 passed by a veto- proof  vote of 89-33.

The first publicized flouting of the Kansas ban on viable abortions happened just weeks after the law went into effect in 1998.  The case involved a Michigan 12-year-old, then within the year, an Arizona 14-year-old, both taken to Tiller’s Wichita clinic.

State reports showed all gruesome late-term partial-birth abortions were done for the mother’s mental health! State reports annually failed to indicate imminent maternal death or physical medical conditions that would justify the destruction of babies able to live outside their mother at the time of the abortion.

The KFL-initiated 2008 citizen grand jury in Wichita saw redacted abortion files that indicated illegalities, compatible with what psychiatric expert, Dr. Paul McHugh, discovered:  phony ‘mental health reasons’ made repeatedly by the same financially dependent doctor, Kris Neuhaus.

At Tiller’s March 2009 criminal trial, Neuhaus was forced (more…)
