Abortions rights groups are planning to rally in Topeka against proposals for more regulation of abortions in Kansas.
The gathering was scheduled for Monday morning at a building near the Statehouse. College students from across Kansas were expected to take part, along with representatives of Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union.
Among the concerns is a bill in the Kansas Legislature banning the use of state funds for some abortions. Opponents contend it would limit access to reproductive health services.
Last month, at least 1,000 abortion opponents gathered at the Statehouse to mark the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade legalizing abortion.
