Kentucky Senate Passes Abortion Bill Requiring Ultrasound Image and "Informed Consent"

The Courier-Journal: Kentucky Senate passes informed consent abortion bill, by Tom Loftus:

Kentucky The Kentucky Senate passed a bill Thursday that requires a woman seeking an abortion to be shown an ultrasound image of her fetus before the procedure takes place.

Senate Bill 9, which also requires that information about abortion be given to the woman at a face-to-face meeting the day before the procedure, passed on a 32-5 vote.

The measure now goes to the House, where an identical bill was defeated in committee last year. . . .
