“ProLife Americans energetically sought the Friday, June 24th, Supreme Court decision overturning Roe for over four decades. Perhaps, with the Roe v. Wade overturn, too many folks on our side may think we’ve won the battle. In fact, the battle has only shifted from the federal level to the states.
“Kansas voters on Tuesday rejected a ballot measure similar to Kentucky’s Amendment #2, to tighten restrictions or ban abortion outright.
“Kentucky is a pro-life state. Our laws reflect the long-held values of Kentuckians”, said Addia Wuchner, Executive Director, Kentucky Right to Life and Chair of the Yes for Life Alliance.
“In recent years the abortion industry has sanitized the word ‘abortion,’ framing it as healthcare. Abortion is not healthcare; it is the only medical procedure that results in the intended termination of an unborn child.
“The wording of Kentucky’s Amendment 2 is very clear and concise. It is probably too soon to fully analyze the reason for the Kansas ballot outcome. The wording on the Kansas ballot was longer than our statement, and that may have been a factor.
“In Kentucky, we remain laser-focused on motivating our overwhelmingly pro-life state to turn out and vote ‘Yes for Life’ on Tuesday, November 8th!’’ stated Wuchner.
