Pro-Abortion Beshear Admin Obstructing Safeguards for Unborn Children & Mothers, Passed With Overwhelming Support
Washington, D.C. – Today Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced he is taking legal action against the Beshear administration for failing to implement parts of H.B. 3, a new law that protects unborn children from painful late abortions, stops dangerous mail-order abortion drugs, and more. The state legislature overrode Governor Andy Beshear’s veto of the legislation in April.
Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America praised Cameron:
“Attorney General Cameron is a heroic defender of Kentucky’s pro-life laws and we thank him for fighting for the people,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The Kentucky Legislature took action to stop cruel late abortions after 15 weeks when unborn children feel pain, safeguard women’s health from dangerous abortion drugs, and more. They sent an even stronger message when they overrode pro-abortion Gov. Beshear’s veto of these life-saving protections. We call on Beshear and his administration to put their own extreme agenda aside and stop their obstruction of Kentuckians’ clear will.”
Multiple peer-reviewed studies confirm that women are at risk of severe side effects after taking chemical abortion pills, including heavy bleeding, intense pain, and even death. Women are also twice as likely to be admitted for surgery if their abortion pill-related complications are miscoded by emergency room personnel as a natural miscarriage.
In addition to Kentucky, Arizona, Arkansas, Indiana, Louisiana, Montana, Tennessee, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Texas have enacted state-level safeguards against mail-order abortion drugs, with additional states considering action.
