The Kentucky House passed a bill rejecting the idea that women have a constitutional right to abortion.
The Kentucky House passed a bill Tuesday seeking to amend the state constitution to specifically state that women do not have a legal right to an abortion.
House Bill 67 passed by a 71-21 vote and now heads to the Senate. If approved by three-fifths of that chamber, the proposed constitutional amendment would be approved or rejected by voters in a state referendum this fall.
The chamber also passed House Bill 451 by a 70-23 vote on Tuesday, which would expand the power of Kentucky’s attorney general to regulate abortion facilities, including bringing civil or criminal penalties for violations.
Rep. Joe Fischer, R-Fort Thomas, the main sponsor of HB 67, said the constitutional amendment would “end the slaughter of unborn children in Kentucky.”
Fischer also criticized the landmark Roe v. Wade decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 that legalized abortion nationwide, hoping that a constitutional restriction in Kentucky would kick in if that decision was ever overturned.
This is obviously true. Can someone point to me where in the constitution the right to abortion exists?
