The ACLU dropped two lawsuits intending to overturn pro-life laws. That’s because they have no basis after Roe v Wade was overturned. However, they’re challenging Kentucky’s Trigger Law, which makes abortion a felony. The ACLU and their allies are arguing that the Kentucky Constitution includes a right to privacy and a right to bodily autonomy. But this language doesn’t appear anywhere in the Kentucky Constitution. This is how Roe v Wade came into existence in the first place. This brings us to the Yes for Life Life amendment. This amendment says that the Kentucky Constitution does not protect the right to abortion. It also stops public tax dollars from being used for abortion. The ballot measure will appear on the ballot this November 8, and all Kentuckians will be able to vote on it.
