My how time changes. This is not the Kansas of Kathleen Sebelius and her good friend the late George Tiller, but a new and better Kansas.

Kansas Passes Law Banning Insurance Companies From Covering Abortions in Their Health Plans…
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — 'The Kansas Legislature has voted to prohibit insurance companies from offering abortion coverage as part of their general health plans except when a woman’s life is at risk.
The state House voted 86-30 early Friday in support of a larger bill that included the abortion coverage restrictions. The state Senate passed it Thursday night.
The legislation now goes to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, who is expected to sign it.
If the bill becomes law, individuals and employers who want abortion coverage would have to buy supplemental policies that cover only abortion.'"
More good news for those who don't relish in the slaughter of America's unborn.

Ind. Planned Parenthood extends imperiled services
"INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Planned Parenthood of Indiana says it will cover the health care costs of current Medicaid patients for at least another week after losing much of its public funding under a new state law.
The reproductive health care organization said Friday that donations will allow it to extend care through at least May 21.
Spokeswoman Kate Shepherd says it's received donations from at least 36 states since April 26. That was the day before the Legislature passed a law to withhold the Medicaid funding.
A federal judge refused this week to temporarily block the law while Planned Parenthood fights it.
Planned Parenthood says it serves about 9,300 Medicaid patients at its 28 Indiana clinics. It's not accepting new Medicaid patients while the court battle continues and is delaying some services."
