TOPEKA, Kansas — Abortion rights organizations, students and Kansas House members are rallying against legislation banning access to reproductive health care.

Representatives from Planned Parenthood, Trust Women and United for Reproductive & Gender Equity are pushing a House bill that would repeal a ban on so-called telemedicine abortions.

The measure would allow women to undergo medically-induced abortions without a physician being present. Katie Knutter, a representative from Trust Women, says the bill would help save time and money for many women who travel several hours to reach her clinic in Wichita.

Monday's rally comes after hundreds of anti-abortion advocates rallied outside the Statehouse last month on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
