Kentucky Legislative NEWS

SENATE BILL 4, the "Face-to-face Informed Consent" bill, AND SB7, the "Ultrasound Informed Consent" bill, have been received in the Kentucky House after having passed overwhelmingly in the Senate. Additionally, Rep. Joe Fischer ( R ) has introduced HB393, the "Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act," which would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks in Kentucky due to the scientific fact that unborn babies at 20 weeks, feel grave pain. Unfortunately, all of these bills have been assigned to the House Health and Welfare Committee...

Did you know — ?
The House Health and Welfare Committee is comprised of nine Democrats and six Republicans. The Republicans will vote to move the bill to the floor, so we have not shown nor listed them below. With Tom Burch controlling this committee and its members, KRLA has not seen any bill reach the House Floor for a vote since 2004! READ MORE.

It is interesting that most of these legislators are from large cities. We know from polls and our statewide elections that the majority of Kentuckians are pro-life. Nearly all of our U.S. Representatives are pro-life (ALL but John Yarmuth). Our U.S. Senators are pro-life. Therefore, these state representatives OUGHT to vote to release these bills to the floor as they know the MAJORITY of Kentuckians would expect.

Can Right to Lifers make a difference? YES!
NOW is the time for all good people to come to the aid of the unborn!

Contact each one! Ask them to move these bills to the floor! Let others know of this need.
