Bishops Respond to Passage of SB 402 Feb

Yesterday evening, the Kentucky State Senate accepted the House changes to SB 4, sending the bill to Governor Bevin for his signature. The Catholic Conference of Kentucky has, along with several other pro-life organizations, worked for many years mother-holding-sleeping-babyto pass this legislation. Kentucky has a very strong statute governing informed consent prior to abortion, but for the past several years, due to administrative decisions, it has been acceptable to satisfy the law by simply playing a recorded message over the phone. SB 4 will hopefully lead to actual conversations between women and health care professionals, where information is provided in a meaningful way and there is an opportunity for questions to be asked.

In response to the final passage of SB 4, the Kentucky bishops have released the following statement.
