A spokeswoman for Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback says the Republican is disappointed by a judge's decision to block a new state law that bans a specific abortion procedure.
The governor is a strong abortion opponent. His spokeswoman, Eileen Hawley, released a statement saying Brownback is committed to "supporting a culture of life."
Hawley called Kansas a "pro-life state" and said, "Kansas law should protect human dignity for all Kansans."
