Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin signed a bill into law that strengthens the state’s informed consent law prior to abortion and requires women to have a face-to-face or live video-chat medical consultation about the procedure at least 24 hours prior to an abortion.
Bevin signed the bill into law – his first bill since being elected – just one day after the state Senate gave its final approval. It will take effect in July.
Bevin said he would sign the measure again ceremonially at a Right-To-Life rally at the Capitol on February 11, reports the Lexington Herald-Leader.
“This is an extraordinary day, and I’m grateful to you,” said the pro-life governor to state Sen. Julie Raque Adams (R), the sponsor of the legislation.
National director of Priests for Life Father Frank Pavone praised Bevin for taking quick action in signing the bill that strengthens the state’s informed consent for abortion law.
