This anti-abortion constitutional amendment was sidelined by the novel coronavirus pandemic. Lawmakers will make bills like this a priority for the next legislative session.
House Bill 67 would permanently change the Kentucky Constitution to ban abortion. It would also enshrine an existing law prohibiting insurance companies from covering abortion. HB67 is a politically-motivated attempt to make abortion completely inaccessible in Kentucky. The government should never have the authority to force someone to remain pregnant against their will.
