Topeka Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson has another week to decide whether he’ll veto a bill that rewrites a state law regulating late-term abortions.
Parkinson received the bill Monday from the Legislature and has until April 15 to act. He also could sign it or let the measure become law without his signature.
Spokesman Seth Bundy wouldn’t speculate Thursday on what action is planned by Parkinson, an abortion rights Democrat.
The bill would require doctors to report more detailed information to the state about the late-term abortions they perform.
Also, patients or their family members could sue a doctor if they had evidence that a late-term abortion was illegal under Kansas law.
