Kentucky lawmakers pass 20-week abortion ban

Kentucky abortion law passed

A bill banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy passed Kentucky’s state legislature Saturday after a final vote in the state House, according to The Associated Press.

The legislation now heads to Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R), who has indicated he will sign it. An emergency clause in the bill allows it to take effect immediately.
