pregnancy ultrasoundKansas lawmakers are attempting to improve a 20-year-old law that ensures women who undergo abortions know about the abortionist. 

Kansas adopted a woman's-right-to-know law two decades ago but pro-lifers say abortionists skirt the law regardless of their actions. So lawmakers have introduced the Disclose Act.

Kathy Ostrowski of Kansans for Life says abortionists would be required to disclose any disciplinary action – many are punished by state medical boards – as well as report if they have hospital privileges. Abortionists would also be required to state their age – many of them are in the their 70s  – and if they live out of state.

"In Kansas, she says, "we're saying that (information) at least should be provided and help a woman who's contemplating an abortion whether this is really what she should be having."

The bill has passed in the House and awaits action by the Senate when it reconvenes in approximately two weeks.
