The Commonwealth Policy Center had the privilege of working on two of the pro-life pieces of legislation passed in the last legislative session. In 2020, CPC is going to monitor the following bills as we work alongside the Kentucky House and Senate:
Pass the Constitutional Amendment on Abortion (HB 67)-
This would amend the State Constitution to make clear that abortion is not a protected right under the Kentucky Constitution. It would also prohibit the use of public funds to procure an abortion.
Defeat the Conversion Therapy Ban (SB 85 and HB 199)-
Would ban any counseling of minors to leave the LGBT lifestyle.
Pass the Protection of Children’s Biological Integrity Act (HB 321)-
Prohibits parents from transitioning their children from their born gender.
Defeat the Medical Marijuana Bill (HB 136)-
A bill that would legalize medical marijuana in Kentucky without proper research.
Defeat the Sports Gambling Bill (HB 137)-
A bill that would legalize gambling on professional and collegiate sports in Kentucky.
Pass the Born Alive Protection Act (SB 9)-
A bill that would protect children who survived a botched abortion, essentially banning infanticide.
Pass the Voter ID Bill (SB 2)-
A bill that would require a government-issued photo ID to vote in all elections.
Pass the Sanctuary Cities Ban (SB 1)-
A bill that would ban illegal immigrant sanctuary cities in Kentucky.
Defeat the Statewide SOGI Ordinance (SB 130 and HB 225)-
A bill that would elevate sexual orientation and gender identity to civil right status.
CPC is dedicated to protecting the values of the commonwealth. We do this on a legislative level by providing key insights to the members of the State House and Senate. However, these legislators need to hear from the people they represent as well. You selected these leaders by your vote, but that is not where your influence should end.
