Progressives in this country have just been hit with another bombshell decision regarding abortion rights.
On Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled that Kentucky’s Attorney General can defend abortion restrictions.
A lower court had previously struck down these restrictions.
Big Loss for Progressives
The law in question would have banned second-trimester abortions.
The law itself is not actually the focus on the case, however.
The state’s Democrat Governor had dropped the initial case, but Attorney General Daniel Cameron wanted the right to defend the law.
The ruling was shockingly almost unanimous, with only Justice Sotomayor issuing a dissenting opinion.
The law was first implemented during Governor Bevin’s administration (he is a Republican).
After the Supreme Court struck down an unrelated Louisiana law, AG Cameron then re-presented the Kentucky law for consideration.
He lost his case at the appellate level, which then led to the case going to the Supreme Court.
After the Supreme Court announced the ruling, Cameron stated, “At every turn, we’ve maintained that Kentucky’s law banning live-dismemberment abortions is worth defending and should receive a full defense from the challenge brought by the ACLU and an abortion clinic.”
The ACLU filed the case on behalf of the abortion clinic.
