TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - About 25 students from across Kansas will be lobbying state lawmakers to oppose stricter regulation of abortions.
The students met with national organizers Monday at a building near the Statehouse before fanning out to meet with legislators at the state Capitol.
Activists from Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union attended the meeting.
The activists and students oppose a bill in the Kansas Legislature banning the use of state funds for some abortions. They contend it would limit access to reproductive health services.
Last month, at least 1,000 abortion opponents gathered at the Statehouse to mark the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade legalizing abortion.
