KY Senate Approves Anti-Abortion Bill

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The Kentucky Senate approves anti-abortion legislation that would defund Planned Parenthood.  

Sponsored by Republican Senator Max Wise, the bill would set up a priority system for distributing federal family planning dollars -- with Planned Parenthood clinics at the back of the line. 

Opponents of the bill argue that Planned Parenthood provides important services to women, such breast cancer screenings.   The organization does not provide abortion services in Kentucky. 

The bill now goes to the House.
