Last week, Judge Franklin R. Theis placed a temporary retraining order on Kansas’s anti-abortion law mandating certain licensing regulations that threatens to shut down every abortion clinic in Kansas. The law was set to go into effect Monday, November 14. Kansas doctors achieved a temporary injunction in July that was set to expire on Monday. The court has yet to set a hearing date. The doctors claimed that the restrictive rules are “oppressive, unreasonable and arbitrary government interference that would significantly impair, if not altogether eliminate…their existing medical practice.”
