Kan. Lawmakers Approve Adult Stem Cell Center
Kansas lawmakers have approved a bill that would require the University of Kansas Medical Center to start a center to promote research and use of adult stem cells, cord blood and related stem cell therapies.
The Kansas Senate has approved new restrictions on abortion providers.
Senators voted 29-11 Tuesday on a bill blocking tax breaks for clinics that provide abortions.
The legislation also keeps groups affiliated with abortion from furnishing materials or instructors for sex education classes in public schools.
The measure also spells out in greater detail which information doctors must provide to patients before performing abortions-- including information about a now-debunked potential link between abortion and breast cancer.
