SCOTUS to hear appeal over Ky. abortion law
UPDATED 7:31 AM PT – Wednesday, March 31, 2021
The Supreme Court agreed to take on a Kentucky case on abortion procedures. On Monday, state Attorney General Daniel Cameron asked the high court to allow him to defend pro-life laws, including a ban on late term abortions.
Cameron’s request came after two lower court rulings said the abortion laws were unconstitutional. While speaking this week, however, Cameron asserted his fight to protect life is not only an important issue to residents. It argued it’s a constitutional right.
“Defending H.B. 454 has been personal for me and my office because I know this bill reflects the the values of Kentuckians across the Commonwealth,” noted the attorney general. “That’s why we’re fighting to defend it and why we’re pleased that the United States Supreme Court will hear our case this fall.”
Earlier today, I announced that #SCOTUS will decide whether our office can defend Kentucky’s law prohibiting live dismemberment abortions.

The Supreme Court will likely hear the case in its next term, which begins in the fall.
