Kansas judge blocks portions of state's new abortion law

Your analogy is flawed. The law in question would have forced abortion providers to vouch for the accuracy of state information on the state website. It would be like the guy at the 7/11 having to vouch for the accuracy of the warning label on the tobacco product.

KANSAS CITY (Reuters) - A Kansas judge on Friday issued a temporary injunction on two parts of the state's new anti-abortion law, while upholding the majority of far-reaching measure that goes into effect Monday.

Shawnee County District Judge Rebecca Crotty struck down a part of the law that forbids a waiver of the required 24-hour waiting period to be granted based on the woman's mental health.

Crotty also struck down a part of the law requiring abortion providers on their websites to vouch for the accuracy and independence of the state's health department material on abortions.
