Supreme Court Hands Pro Lifers HUGE WIN In KY!

Kentucky’s Supreme Court delivered a huge victory for the GOP and pro-life movement. The American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky was left disappointed on Thursday as the state Supreme Court upheld two of the most restrictive anti-abortion laws in the nation.

The court ruled that the state’s near-total ban on abortions and a separate one that outlaws the procedure after the sixth week of pregnancy can remain in place. The justices sent the case back to a lower court for further consideration of constitutional issues related to the more restrictive ban, leaving Kentuckians with few options when it comes to accessing safe and legal abortions.

“This decision is an attack on the fundamental right to bodily autonomy and reproductive freedom. We will never give up the fight to restore these rights in Kentucky,” said the ACLU of Kentucky in a statement.

Meanwhile, Kentucky’s Republican attorney general, Daniel Cameron, praisedthe court’s decision as a “significant victory.”

“We will continue to defend laws that protect the unborn and stand up for the unborn by defending these laws,” he said.

The legal challenge was brought by two Louisville abortion providers who argued that the ban violated their patients’ constitutional rights. However, the court ruled that the providers lacked the “third-party standing” to do so.

The court noted, though, that the providers do have “first-party” constitutional standing to challenge the near-total ban, pointing to “financial harm” as sufficient grounds for such standing.

The court’s ruling follows the rejection of a ballot measure last year that would have denied any constitutional protections for abortion, and comes after arguments were heard a week after the November midterm elections.

This was just the latest victory for the pro-life movement which has taken centerstage around the dinner table over the last several months. People on both sides have strong opinions, obviously but, at least in this case, the unborn win.
