Last week, pro-life Kentuckians and Americans rejoiced at the ending of five-decades of federal judicial overreach as Roe v Wade was overturned in the Dobbs decision.
Sadly today, Judge Mitch Perry with the Kentucky 30th Circuit Court, 3rd Division, issued a temporary restraining order that will now allow Kentucky’s two Louisville-based abortion facilities to resume the taking of innocent life.
“We are deeply troubled by this ruling because it clearly circumvents the bipartisan Human Life Protection Act that was overwhelming passed by the Kentucky State Legislature in 2019, and became enforceable last Friday with the United States Supreme Court’s decision which overturned Roe v Wade.
“Judge Perry by issuing this order is allowing the reinstatement of abortions at Planned Parenthood and EMW Center”, said Addia Wuchner, Executive Director, Kentucky Right to Life.
“We fully support Kentucky’s Attorney General Daniel Cameron and his team as they continue to defend this law and protect the lives of the innocent unborn children in our Commonwealth through the judicial process,” Wuchner added.
The action taken today by one judge further underscores the importance of saying Yes for Life by passing Constitutional Amendment #2 that will be on the Kentucky ballot this coming November 8th.
