The state asked a federal judge last week to toss out a lawsuit challenging a Kansas law passed last year that prohibits insurance companies from offering coverage of abortion in their general insurance plans. The state’s attorneys argued that the American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas and Western Missouri has failed to present evidence that individual women haven’t been able to obtain abortions because of the law, Associated Press reported. The ACLU argues that the law penalizes women who exercise their constitutional right to have an abortion. It’s unclear whether the law is unconstitutional; U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson will make that decision. But the law certainly isn’t conservative, as it bans private insurance companies from offering coverage of a legal service to private companies for their private employees. That’s not limited government.
