As many of us read yesterday the Supreme Court has refused to hear H.B 2, the narrated ultrasound law. This law requires doctors to describe in detail the ultrasound and play the sound of the fetal heartbeat even if it's against the patient's wishes. This law does not provide any improvements to abortion care in Kentucky, it's main purpose is to continue to shame and attempt to coerce people from having an abortion.
We urge you to read Kentucky’s Abortion Law Forces Me to Humiliate My Patients written by Dr. Ashlee Bergin from September where she explains the impact of this law on both doctors and patients in Kentucky.
While this ruling is disappointing to say the least, you CAN still get an abortion in Kentucky.
Thank you so much for your continued support for our mission
