In November, Kentucky joined the ranks of states like Kansas to reject a ballot measure that would have spelled out harsher limitations in the fight for abortion access. Kentucky’s Amendment 2 would have introduced language into the state’s constitution saying that nothing in the document secured or protected abortion rights. While abortion remains illegal in Kentucky, the failure of Amendment 2
means that Kentucky’s abortion ban can still be challenged as unconstitutional in the courts, giving a bit of hope for those who are steadfast in their mission to revive bodily autonomy in the commonwealth. ag.ky.gov.
