Planned Parenthood Sues To Revoke Law Forcing Them To Give Women Informed Consent On Abortions

OLATHE, KS. - Attorneys from Alliance Defending Freedom, along with Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach's office, filed a brief with the Johnson County District Court on Friday requesting a state court to reject Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers' efforts to prevent the enforcement of a pro-life and pro-woman law in Kansas.

Since 1997, Kansas has implemented the Woman's Right to Know Act, which aims to provide women with necessary information and ensure their informed decision-making process when considering abortion. This law acknowledges the potential risks and significant impact of the procedure. 

In the case of Hodes & Nauser v. Kobach, Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers in the state are contesting a law that aims to provide women with information about the potential risks and consequences of abortion, as well as the available financial, medical, and legal support if they decide to continue their pregnancy.


According to Denise Harle, ADF Senior Counsel and director of the ADF Center for Life, it is important to recognize the value of every human life, ensure the protection of every baby, and provide mothers with sufficient time and information to make decisions that empower them and benefit their families.

Harle believes Kansas enacted measures related to abortion that aim to provide pregnant mothers with adequate informed consent, allowing them to consider the impact of abortion on themselves and their child. She says the court is being requested to uphold the state's law that has been duly enacted, representing the interests of all current and future residents of Kansas.

According to the brief, Kansas, similar to all other states, possesses the authority to regulate the medical profession. The brief asserts this authority is exercised as part of its inherent powers to protect the health, safety, and welfare of its citizens. 

The brief also asserts that women, rather than those who perform abortions for personal gain, may experience negative consequences if the Court prohibits the implementation of the reasonable informed consent requirements outlined in the [Woman's Right to Know] Act.

A systematic review published by SAGE Open Medicine examined 11 studies that reported mortality rates associated with abortions. The findings indicated a higher risk of death within 180 days after the procedure. 

In addition, a peer-reviewed study discovered that approximately 1 in 6 women choose to terminate a pregnancy they desired. Furthermore, the study revealed that women who underwent an abortion were found to have a 43% higher likelihood of developing alcohol dependency or engaging in the misuse of hard drugs following abortion.
