FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Republican lawmakers have outlined their next round of abortion legislation in Kentucky.

Rep. Nancy Tate on Wednesday previewed efforts to strengthen parental consent standards for minors seeking the procedure.

Those efforts also include seeking greater oversight of medication-induced abortions.

Tate told a legislative panel that the measure is still being crafted.

It will be introduced in the General Assembly session beginning January. Abortion-rights advocates said the measure would mean greater government intrusion into family relationships.

The measure would continue aggressive efforts by Kentucky lawmakers in recent years to put restrictions and conditions on abortion.
