We oppose this bill that would allow politicians to further intrude into the personal health decisions of Kentucky patients by banning abortion for reasons based on the sex, race, or disability status of the fetus. House Bill 5 sets a dangerous precedent for defining what reasons are or are not acceptable for people seeking an abortion and could lead to even more restrictions on access to safe, legal reproductive health care.
