MESSAGES FROM THE GOVERNOR
House Bill No. 2264
An Act concerning health and healthcare; relating to abortion; requiring certain notifications that a medication abortion may be reversed; excluding certain procedures from the definition of abortion; amending K.S.A. 40-2,190, 65-4a01, 65-6701, 65-6708, 65-6723 and 65-6742 and repealing the existing sections.
Message to the Legislature of the State of Kansas
In August, Kansans made clear that they believe personal healthcare decisions should be made between a woman and her doctor, not politicians in Topeka. This bill would interfere with that relationship and given the uncertain science behind it, could be harmful to Kansans’ health.
Therefore, under Article 2, Section 14(a) of the Constitution, I hereby veto House Bill 2264.
Laura Kelly, Governor
