Since the Dobbs ruling overturned Roe v Wade, a total of 46 abortion clinics have closed across the country. This is because 10 states have restricted abortion through legislative action. However, Kentucky’s abortion ban was blocked by a circuit judge in Louisville. Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is defending the state law that bans most abortions. His office called on Dr. Monique Chireau Wubbenhorst to testify. She told the judge that “abortion is not health care.” Attorney General Cameron has defended Kentucky’s abortion law at all three levels of Kentucky’s judiciary, and “not a single judge at any level has suggested these laws are unconstitutional, yet we are unfortunately still prohibited from enforcing them.”
