Release Date: Aug 08, 2023
TOPEKA – (August 8, 2023) – Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach issued the following statement after today’s oral arguments in Hodes & Nauser v. Kobach:
“The Women’s Right to Know Act has been in place for more than 20 years and has been an important part of ensuring informed consent before any abortions are performed. We’re confident that the court will uphold this common-sense statute."
The Women’s Right to Know Act, passed in 1997, requires that abortion providers give women undergoing abortions information about the risks involved, and it requires that women receive information about resources available if they choose to have the child.
