KY Ultrasound Legislation

Share post

A new bill is making its rounds in Kentucky proposing a law which would require women be offered the option to see their baby’s ultrasound and have its development explained prior to undergoing abortive procedures. See below for more details from Kentucky Right to Life:

SB9 – Ultrasound Informed Consent – will be heard in the Senate Standing Committee on Military Affairs, Veterans, and Public Safety on January 6th and is expected to pass with bipartisan support.

Hopefully it will receive its final reading and pass on the Senate floor on Friday, then head to the House, where it has died in previous years.

During the next three weeks please work to generate phone calls into your House Representative and ask him or her to urge House Leadership to support the Ultrasound Informed Consent bill. When you call the Legislative Message line at 800-372-7181 the operator will identify your House Rep within a few seconds.

We must be the clear and strong voice for the unborn. Their lives depend on it!

Thank You!

The bill did pass in the Kentucky Senate (http://bluegrasspolitics.bloginky.com/2011/01/06/gop-agenda-moving-through-state-senate-in-whirlwind-fashion/) so let’s pray the Lord causes it to pass in the upcoming House vote.

Three states currently have similar laws (http://www.guttmacher.org/statecenter/spibs/spib_RFU.pdf) –  pray that Kentucky joins them soon!

Here is the link to the bill http://www.lrc.ky.gov/record/11RS/sb9.htm as well as the site where you can look up your Kentucky Representative http://www.lrc.ky.gov/house/hsemembers.htm. Join us in calling our law makers and praying the Lord causes this bill to pass!

    Thanks for sharing this link, Ken. I took your dare and watched the entire video… truly heartbreaking.

    I’m assuming that you agree with Ms. Lauren’s point of view which, if I may sum it up, was: “We know it’s a baby, but don’t make us dwell on that since that just makes it all the harder to kill it. Our lives are hard enough and you aren’t helping.” Please do correct me if I’m wrong. I felt the pain in her voice and was moved by her poetic cries, but this is the message that it seemed to boil down to.

    Our response to this line of thinking is straightforward, Ken – we want women to have a hard time getting an abortion. I know that sounds harsh, but please try to see how this is also merciful. Abortion is hard for these women because they recognize it is the destruction of a human life. That pain or anguish over such a decision is there because the destruction of a human life is inherently wrong. These women feel anguish b/c they too have been created in the image of God and have been given a moral conscience that thankfully is working to convict them over the sin of murder. Our prayer is that women will be confronted with this uncomfortable truth and will then decide not to be a part of the sin of abortion. Conviction or shame or discomfort over abortion is acutally merciful b/c it can change someone’s heart and prevent them from actually acting on that sin.

    We get this response straight from the Bible. 2 Corinthians 7:10: “For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.” We don’t come out to heap shame and disgrace in a “worldly way” that simply attacks a person and degrades them… no we long for “godly grief” that will save a baby’s life and a mother’s soul!

      Hey Ken,

      I only deleted the link b/c it was posted on our other article. I’ll put up here with my comments from the last note too:
