Topeka — Kansas House leaders expect an attempt Friday to override Gov. Mark Parkinson's veto of a bill on late-term abortions.
The bill allows patients or family members to sue doctors if they have evidence an abortion violated state law.
The measure also requires more details in doctors' reports to the state about abortions of viable fetuses after the 21st week of pregnancy. Kansas allows such abortions only to save the mother's life or prevent major damage to her health.
Backers of the bill need a two-thirds majority in the House to override the veto. If they succeed there, two-thirds of the Senate would also have to vote for an override.
