LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – The Protect Kentucky Access campaign was at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Lexington on Saturday.
The campaign was there to educate people about Amendment Two, which is on the ballot this year for the Kentucky Constitution.
The group is hoping the amendment won’t pass because it could mean that one could not use the state’s constitution to defend the right to have an abortion.
Speakers outlined why the court’s ruling on Friday to block the abortion ban is important in their fight against Amendment Two.
“The only thing standing in between the aggressive attempts by Attorney General Cameron to have this trigger law take effect is the state Constitution. So that’s what this ballot issue is going after. It is really taking the state Constitution and cementing that it is game over”, said Michael Muller, Protect Kentucky Access campaign manager.
After the court’s ruling, Cameron issued a statement that said: “The Judge’s suggestion that Kentucky’s Constitution contains a right to abortion is not ground in the text and history of our state’s governing document.”
