Judge strikes down Kentucky abortion law

A federal judge has struck down Kentucky abortion law HB2. The law required abortion patients to undergo an ultrasound and listen to audio of the fetal heartbeat. The judge said the law violated First Amendments rights and appeared to inflict psychological harm to patients. The law gave patients the option to not listen to the audio and not look at the ultrasound images. The ruling comes as Kentucky’s last abortion clinic is fighting to keep its license.
