A team of pro-life leaders met in Frankfort last week to perform triage on the bills that have been introduced by our wonderful representatives and senators. Some bills have moved along further than others. Which bill is most important to pass?
HB 67 is sponsored by Rep. Joe Fischer and 30 other House Republicans! The large number of fellow Republicans who have co-sponsored the bill shows it is considered to be IMPORTANT.
This bill would create a new section of the Constitution of Kentucky stating that it does not secure or protect a right to abortion or funding of abortion. This would be accomplished by an amendment to our Constitution. The public would vote to approve this amendment next November if it passes the legislature.
The committee that will hear the arguments is the House Elections, Constitutional Amendments & Intergovernmental Affairs Committee. See the Republican members here for their email address, legislative phone number, and twitter handle, if known.
With our strong pro-life constituents who have elected pro-life legislators, now is the time to defend innocent human life through a Constitutional Amendment to ban abortion or any funding of it. If Roe v. Wade is weakened or banned by SCOTUS, this amendment will state our case.
Please take a moment to contact the committee members to hear HB67 and pass it on to the House Floor. Leave a message for your legislators by calling the Legislative Message Line at 1-800-372-7181. Thank you!
