The Kansas attorney general’s office has paid outside lawyers more than $644,000 to defend the state laws targeting women’s reproductive health so far this year. The office reports that it paid at least three separate firms in Kansas working to increase restrictions for abortion providers, restrict private insurance coverage for abortion procedures, and defend a budget provision denying federal dollars for non-abortion services to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood filed a federal lawsuit against the budget provision.
