A Kansas House committee is preparing to act on a bill aimed at preventing the state from indirectly subsidizing abortions through tax credits or deductions.

Wednesday's agenda for the Federal and State Affairs Committee included a vote on the measure, which would make several changes in state tax laws, all designed to cut off indirect support for abortions.

For example, people who deduct medical expenses from their income taxes couldn't include abortion expenses in the calculation. A nonprofit organization that provides abortion services would have to pay the state sales tax on what it buys, unlike other nonprofits.

Also, the measure would prohibit public schools from using materials in human sexuality classes from groups that provide abortion services.
