New late-term abortion restrictions in Kansas possible

Legislators in Kansas have passed a bill to rewrite their late-term abortion law in an attempt to prevent any abortionists specializing in killing children after 21 weeks from practicing in Kansas. It doesn't have veto-proof majorities and pro-choice governor Mark Parkinson hasn't indicated whether he will sign it or not.
The measure would allow patients or family members to sue doctors if they have evidence an abortion violated state law. Also, doctors would be required to report more details to the state about abortions performed after the 21st week of pregnancy and involving fetuses considered viable, or able to survive outside the womb......
Here's a good tidbit for all the individuals who claimed abortionist George Tiller was saving the lives of women.
But the state hasn’t required physicians to list the exact medical diagnosis justifying each abortion, just a statement saying it was necessary to preserve her health. The state has said none of the more than 3,000 late-term abortions of viable fetuses since the law took effect were to save a patient’s life.
