Kentucky bill would require ultrasound before abortion
By Azadeh Ansari and Kwegyirba Croffie, CNN
(CNN)Two bills that put tighter restrictions on abortion are one step closer to becoming law in Kentucky, both heading to the governor's desk for final approval after being passed by the Republican-led state Legislature on Saturday.
House Bill 2 requires a physician or technician to perform an ultrasound, describe and display the ultrasound images to the mother, and provide audio of the fetal heartbeat to the mother before she may have an abortion.
The text of the bill says the pregnant woman may choose to avert her eyes from the images, and request the volume of the heartbeat be turned down or off.
HB2 passed the House with an 83-12 vote and passed the Senate by a vote of 32-5.
Senate Bill 5 prohibits abortions in the state at or after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The bill would not apply in cases where an abortion is required to save the life of the mother or prevent serious risk of bodily harm to the mother, but it does not contain exceptions for cases of rape or incest.
