Ultrasound before abortion bill passes
By Rebecca Feldhaus/KPR
Frankfort, KY – A bill to require an ultrasound prior to an abortion has again sailed through a senate committee. The measure also requires one on one interaction between the medical provider and the woman seeking an abortion. Kate Cunningham of Louisville attended the committee meeting Thursday. She opposes the bill.
"I think we should all join together to work to reduce the rate of unplanned unintended unwanted pregnancies I would hope that's something we should all agree on and work on together."
Cunningham says lawmakers should spend more time dealing with budget problems and less on abortion. Margie Montgomery with Kentucky Right to Life is confident the bill will pass the senate. And she's more optimistic it can also win house passage.
