Kansas to appeal ruling blocking abortion rules, including a medication restriction

AP Political Writer

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Republican attorney general in Kansas is appealing a state judge’s ruling that has blocked enforcement of multiple abortion restrictions. Those state rules include a new limit on medication abortions and an older rule forcing patients to wait 24 hours before they can get the procedure. Attorney General Kris Kobach filed a notice Thursday in Johnson County District Court in the Kansas City area, saying he will ask higher courts to overturn the judge’s ruling last month. The judge concluded that abortion providers were likely to successfully argue in a lawsuit going to trial in June 2024 that the restrictions violate the Kansas Constitution.
