TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Two Kansas doctors have filed suit in state court challenging a sweeping, new anti-abortion law set to take effect in July.

Dr. Herbert Hodes and his daughter, Dr. Traci Nauser, filed their lawsuit Friday in Shawnee County District Court. The two doctors perform abortions at their Overland Park health center.

The filing came one day after Planned Parenthood filed a federal lawsuit over portions of the same law.

The lawsuit from Hodes and Nauser seeks to invalidate the entire law. It blocks tax breaks for abortion providers, prohibits their involvement in public school courses and spells out what information they must provide to women before performing abortions.

The doctors contend the law violates their rights to equal legal protection under the Kansas constitution.
