Ultrasound before abortion bill passes

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.
