Julie Burkhart, founder and CEO of Trust Women, which operates a clinic in Wichita, said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration hadn’t endorsed the protocol outlined in the legislation.
“The ‘reversal protocol’ advanced by this bill and others like it is completely unverified and has not been the subject of any peer-reviewed medical studies,” she said.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas, which endorsed Kelly’s veto, called the bill unconstitutional.
“This law requires doctors to work against their own Hippocratic oath, and politicians should not be intruding on the doctor-patient relationship, inserting falsehoods in their crusade to violate women’s agency and reproductive freedoms,” said Letitia Harmon, policy director at the Kansas ACLU.
