It's been a momentous time in Kentucky's Capitol in Frankfort. Seven bills became law in a week when very little is usually accomplished. Rallies were held. Testimonies heard and opposition to the bills ensued. In fact, one group was so upset by the passage of one bill that less than 48 hours after it was signed into law, they sued. The bill was over requiring abortionists to provide  ultrasounds to expecting women. The group that sued was the Kentucky ACLU. They said the law is "condescending to the medical community.” State Rep. Robert Benvenuti disagreed and said "To have true informed consent, you must have all the information. … Where else in our medical procedures do we say less information is better?" That question will soon be answered by the federal courts where the case will be heard after the ACLU filed suit against the law..
