“Kansas health regulators said today that the abortion clinics they’ve inspected so far have failed to meet the requirements to get a license under a law that takes effect Friday,” the Kansas City Star reports, suggesting that all three of the state’s abortion clinics may soon shut down. The licensing regulations — part of a new measure establishing overly rigorous standards abortion providers must meet in order to continue operating — are part of a Republican effort to effectively eliminate abortions in the state. Earlier this week, one clinic announced that it had failed to meet the licensing requirements and would be closing its doors.
