Two pro-life bills have passed out of their committee hearings to proceed on their journey to passage.

Testimonies for and against HB67, to pass a constitutional amendment stating that Kentucky does not protect a right to abortion or its funding, were heard by the Elections, Const. Amendments & Intergovernmental Affairs Committee. (See related post here). 

Testimonies for SB90, a bill to protect conscience rights of medical providers, were heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Its primary sponsor Sen. Stephen Meredith stated, “No medical professional should be forced to violate the oath to do no harm.” The KET [Public Television] coverage features a nurse’s testimony that this protection is needed, and statements from legislators who oppose the bill because “It is not in the best interest of the patient.”

The screenshot from the KET video shows KRLA’s Margie Montgomery seated just behind the ACLU spokesperson during the HB67 hearing. Keep informed!
