But it’s that very right to life, itself, that the radical left has set its sights on, with the end goal of unfettered abortion access at the top of their list of dangerous priorities for our country.
But individual states are taking a stand: Here in Kentucky, the State House of Representatives recently approved a measure that would amend the State Constitution to clarify that the document does NOT, in fact, imply a “right” to abortion, by a decisive 76-20 vote.
If also approved by the State Senate, the bill, called H.B. 91, would place the proposed amendment on the ballot in November of 2022, allowing Kentucky voters to ultimately decide whether it should be added to the State Constitution via referendum.
But we need your help now! We must contact our State Senators and let them know we support this legislation, and encourage them to vote in favor of it when it comes before them for a vote.
You can reach your State Senator in one easy step using this simple contact form that LifeSiteNews.com is making available here.
It’s called Voter Voice and it will automatically match you to your representative’s email and Twitter accounts.
With one click, your message will be sent directly to your Senator without having to look up any of their contact details.
The text of the amendment proposed in H.B. 91 reads as follows:
To protect human life, nothing in this Constitution shall be construed to secure or protect a right to abortion or require the funding of abortion.
It is a simple yet straightforward affirmation that the Kentucky State Constitution does not, in its originally written form, directly state or imply that a “right” to abortion is automatically protected under Kentucky law.
“We cannot afford to allow abortion proponents to forum shop our state courts to invent a state constitutional right to an abortion and thereby invalidate our state laws protecting unborn children,” State Representative Joe Fischer, who introduced the bill, said.
For the time being, individual states are our best hope to fight back against the radical left and their allies in the abortion lobby, and bold legislation like H.B. 91 is exactly how we can accomplish this.
That’s why it’s so important that we contact our State Senators and request that they follow their House colleagues’ lead and pass this vital legislation!
Please take a few minutes to contact your State Senators and request that they vote in favor of H.B. 91 when it comes before them for a vote.
If this bill passes, Kentucky could prove a precedent-setter in terms of how individual states can fight back against the abortion lobby’s efforts to make unfettered abortion access the law of the land across our country.
We must take action to protect the right to life here at home in Kentucky, and the best way to do so is to ensure that H.B. 91 passes the State Senate so the proposed constitutional amendment to affirm that there exists no inherent “right” to abortion goes to the voters in 2022.
Thank you for helping deliver this message to them.
