WITH VIDEO – The first pro-life bill to clear the House and Senate in a dozen years was personally walked down to Governor Matt Bevin by members of the GOP on Tuesday for his signature.

Senate Bill 4, which allows real-time telemedicine consultations between doctors and women seeking an abortion, was signed on the spot by Kentucky’s governor.

GOP members of the Senate decided to walk the bill down to the governor’s office where bill sponsor Sen. Julie Raque Adams, R-Louisville, personally handed the legislation to Bevin.

Bevin gave the group the option to move the signing date to February 11 when a pro-life rally is scheduled to take place in the capitol, but it was decided to have the governor sign the bill immediately, and host a second ceremonial signing at the rally.
