Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin recently signed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. It effectively bans abortions after five months.
Kent Ostrander, president of our ally, The Family Foundation of Kentucky, said the General Assembly accomplished more for the pro-life cause in five days than it had in the past decade.
Marjorie Dennenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said Kentucky becomes the 19th state to pass the measure. She says it’s time for the U.S. Congress to make it law.
“As Governor Bevin rightly pointed out, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is popular on both sides of the aisle,” she explained. “Americans are eager to see the U.S. removed from the list of only seven countries to allow abortion on-demand more than halfway through pregnancy.”
