"Legal Fight Could Make Kentucky Only State With No Abortion Clinic"

Republicans, riding Donald J. Trump’s coattails, took control of the Kentucky House in November for the first time in 95 years. Their first order of business in January was to pass two measures restricting abortion — one banning the procedure after 20 weeks into a pregnancy, and the other requiring doctors to narrate ultrasounds in detail, regardless of patients’ wishes.

The A.C.L.U. is also challenging the ultrasound measure, on the grounds that it violates doctors’ First Amendment rights.
