Kansas AG pays $1.03M to Defend Anti-Abortion Laws



TOPEKA, Kan.  -  Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt's office says it has paid outside attorneys more than $1 million to defend anti-abortion laws enacted in recent years.
 
The attorney general's office reported Thursday that it has paid more than $612,000 to the Lawrence firm of Thompson, Ramsdell & Qualseth for fees and expenses in handling multiple federal and state lawsuits.
 
Abortion providers have sued the state over special regulations adopted in 2011 and a 2013 law requiring them to post certain material on their websites and provide the information to women before abortions.
 
Schmidt's office also has paid more than $418,000 to the Wichita firm of Foulston Siefken to defend a measure keeping federal dollars for non-abortion services from flowing to Planned Parenthood.
