Anti-Abortion Attorney General Overreach

House Bill Number: 
451

House Bill 451 expands the power of the Attorney General to undermine the rights of Kentuckians to end a pregnancy and to seek medical care from health care providers in the state. This bill allows the Attorney General to seek injunctions and impose administrative penalties, civil action or criminal penalties against abortion providers. House Bill 521 contains very similar provisions, but also contains an emergency clause. We oppose HB 521 as well.
