Governor signs bill allowing Kansas pharmacists to refuse filling abortion inducing prescriptions


Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has signed a bill allowing pharmacists in the state to refuse to fill a prescription they think could be used to induce abortion.

The bill does not define which drug in particular.

Pharmacists can not be fired for refusing to fill such prescriptions and doctors can refuse to refer patients to pharmacists who would fill a birth control prescription.

Kansas already had a law that allowed medical professionals to refuse to assist in abortion procedures.
