Have you ever wondered who’s funding those scare ads to mislead Kentucky voters about the pro-life Amendment #2? According to the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance, much of the money is coming from out of state. Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg donated $250,000. The ACLU of New York donated 50,000, and a group called move Movement Voter PAC from Massachusetts donated $75,000 —all to defeat Kentucky constitutional amendment #2, which would keep Kentucky state judges from finding a right to abortion in the state constitution. The Amendment also stops your tax dollars from funding abortions in the Commonwealth. It’s a commonsense Amendment—one that most Kentuckians will likely support, so long as they can cut through the misleading advertising funded by out-of-state interests.

Ballot text: Are you in favor of amending the Constitution of Kentucky by creating a new Section of the Constitution to be numbered Section 26A to state as follows: To protect human life, nothing in this Constitution shall be construed to secure or protect a right to abortion or require the funding of abortion?
