There are few pieces of legislation as life-altering and impactful as those bills that protect innocent human life. And this General Assembly session has seen its share of such proposals. There's a bill to restrict chemical abortions. One would ban abortions after 11 weeks and stop dismemberment abortions. Another would ban the targeting of unborn children with Downs Syndrome. Now, a few of these bills might make into law as our state legislature is as pro-life as ever. In fact, Kentucky could very well become the first state without an abortion center. The last remaining center is in Louisville and operating in violation of the law. Gov. Bevin's attorneys have filed suit to make the abortion center abide by the law. If they prevail, Kentucky could become the first state in the nation without an abortion center.
