This is horrendous!
Politicians in Kansas are giving doctors the right to keep information from pregnant women and their partners. (Because they don't have enough to worry about!)
There's a provision in an anti-abortion bill that, if passed, will allow a doctor who discovers that a baby will be born with a devastating condition to deliberately not tell the parents about it!!
Yup! Your doctor would be legally allowed to straight up LIE to you about the state of your unborn child because of his or her beliefs.
That is like your doctor telling you: "I know it's your family, life and body BUT… I know better than you." It's disrespectful to the patient, and it's just NOT right!
This isn't just happening in Kansas. Similar nills have been proposed in Virginia, Idaho, and Pennsylvania. Effed up!
CLICK HERE to send a letter to the senate president of the state of Kansas, and let him know how U feel about a bill that interferes in a family's personal and private decisions!
