Senate Okays Life Bills that House Will Abort

Sen. Tom Burch

Two pro-life bills have now been approved by the Kentucky state Senate but if past experience is any guide, they are doomed to die in the House of Representatives without even getting a vote by the full House.

Senate Bill 103, which would require that an abortionist at least give a woman the opportunity to see an ultrasound image of her baby before killing the child, passed 32-4, on Tuesday.

Another bill, SB 102, which would require a woman seeking an abortion to have a face-to-face counseling session from a health care professional 24 hours in advance, passed the Senate on Feb. 8.

Both bills are expected to be killed by the House Health and Welfare Committee, which is chaired by a staunch pro-abortion legislator, Rep. Tom Burch, D-Louisville. His committee is where House leadership sends any pro-life legislation to die so the chance of the full House actually getting a chance to vote on these bills is probably miniscule.
