Kentucky State Rep. Joseph Fischer has pre-filed an amendment to the Kentucky Constitution clarifying that abortion is not a constitutional right and public funds aren’t to be spent on abortion. Several states have passed a similar amendment including Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Louisiana. Should it pass the state legislature next session, it would be the 11th pro-life bill in Kentucky in the last six years. Kentucky has become a pro-life leader and our state legislature has a vision to make clear that the right to life should be extended to all and this bolsters Kentucky’s reputation as a safe place for the unborn.
