KENTUCKY LAW


24 HOUR CONSENT
During the 1998 session of the Kentucky General Assembly, a 24 Hour Consent Law for abortions was passed.

This law requires that each patient who has an abortion in the Commonwealth of Kentucky must consent to the abortion and be offered state mandated materials at least 24 hours prior to having the abortion procedure.

This information is given verbally at the time the patient makes her appointment so that she can have her abortion procedure 24 hours later when she comes to the clinic.

PARENTAL CONSENT
Kentucky law also requires the consent of one parent of a minor under the age of 18. If the minor feels unable to involve one parent in her decision, she may seek judicial by-pass.

Clinic staff will give information regarding judicial by-pass when you call.

Please ask for this information.
