ACLU drops challenge to Kansas abortion law

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union has dropped its legal challenge to a Kansas law restricting private health insurance coverage for abortions.

A court filing today shows the parties have agreed to dismiss all remaining claims.

The agreement follows a federal judge’s Jan. 7 ruling that the ACLU failed to prove that the Legislature’s chief goal in passing the 2011 law was to impede access to abortions.

The Kansas law prohibits private insurance companies from offering coverage for abortions in their general plans except for when a woman’s life is in danger. Kansas residents or employers who want abortion coverage must buy supplemental policies, known as riders.

The case had been scheduled for trial in March. Under the agreement, each side would bear its own costs and attorneys’ fees.

Its a shame but its only one battle and the ACLU will remain ever vigilant to protect our freedoms.

Suggest removal:

LtMac,

As an avowed atheist, it's no surprise that you support the oftentimes anti-Christian ACLU.

Whatever good this organization does is negated by being against Almighty God.

When did you become an atheist and why?
