TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) - A Planned Parenthood clinic and its medical director are challenging parts of a new Kansas abortion law that takes effect next month.
The Overland Park clinic and Dr. Orrin Moore filed suit Thursday in U.S. District Court.
They argue that new requirements spelling out the information that clinics and doctors must give patients before performing abortions violate their free-speech rights.
Planned Parenthood objects to a section of the law requiring its website to link to a state website containing what it says is the government's viewpoint on abortion.
It also objects to a requirement that patients receive information that an abortion will terminate the life of what the new law calls a "whole, separate, unique, living human being."
The lawsuit names four Kansas officials as defendants.
