NEW HAVEN, Conn., Dec. 9, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- "The Knights of Columbus commends the U.S. Supreme Court for leaving in place the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals decision that upholds Kentucky's ultrasound law as constitutional. Key to our system of law is the idea of informed consent, and we believe that every American should welcome the fact that under this law women in Kentucky will be able to make a more informed choice about abortion.
"Our own work with ultrasounds has shown that women who see an ultrasound result while considering an abortion are often transformed by the experience through seeing their unborn child and avoiding what they would later consider to be a tragic mistake. Such outcomes are better for the child and mother alike. Leaving this law in place will make mothers better informed on the issue and will undoubtedly save lives in the process."
