Ultrasound Bill Passes Senate
Frankfort, KY – The Kentucky Senate easily passed a bill requiring doctors perform ultrasounds on pregnant women before having abortions. Under the bill, the ultrasound
would be required prior to a woman giving consent to have an abortion. Doctors would provide a medical description of the ultrasound images, including the presence of organs and "external members" such as arms and legs. The bill's lead sponsor, Sen. Elizabeth Tori, says the bill "rights a wrong." Sen. Kathy Stein, who opposed the bill, said there was another motivation for supporters. She called it a move to place more restrictions on a woman's private health-care choice.
