The Kansas Senate has approved a bill that would ban a specific type of abortion procedure. KMUW's Aileen LeBlanc reports...
In a 31-9 vote, the Senate passed the measure called the Kansas Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act.
If passed, the act would ban using forceps, clamps, tongs, scissors or similar instruments to intentionally dismember a fetus before removal.
Other dilation and evacuation techniques that use just suction are not part of the ban.
