Kentucky AG to Newsmax: Judges Focused on Policy, Not Abortion Law

July 14, 2022

Kentucky’s trigger law to ban abortion has yet to take effect because some judges in the state are “more concerned about policy outcomes” than they are about following the law after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, state Attorney General Daniel Cameron, said on Newsmax, Thursday. 

Under the terms of the state’s Human Life Protection Act, which was passed with bipartisan support, the state’s trigger law should have taken effect, the Kentucky Republican said on Newsmax’s “National Report.” “I’m 100% pro-life and want to make sure that we do everything we possibly can here to protect the lives of the unborn, and so we’ve been defending this Human Life Protection Act in court.”

Cameron, a GOP candidate for governor in Kentucky, noted that 19 Democrats in the state House and Senate voted for the bill’s passage, so it expressed the values of Kentucky that “we’re going to stand up and protect life.”

“We need to make sure that we’re taking that next step in advocating for pregnant women and advocating for the unborn, so we’re going to do that here in Kentucky through these pregnancy centers through churches, and through other groups and associations that care deeply about the lives of the unborn,” said Cameron. “I’m proud to be walking alongside them in this effort.”
