These days, the brightness of life shines stronger. And the death culture cringes at the genius.
CNN reports that Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s effort to allow the state’s trigger law banning abortion to be enforced while the case progresses has been successful. A state appeals court in Kentucky reinstated a ban on abortion.
A separate regulation prohibiting abortions after around six weeks of pregnancy, when the fetus’s heart begins to beat, was also reinstated by the court.
According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, Planned Parenthood and EMW Women’s Surgical Center have argued that a near-total ban on abortion would “cause irreparable harm to pregnant people who no longer wish to be pregnant.”
After Roe v. Wade was reversed, Planned Parenthood and other providers first filed the lawsuit to challenge the trigger laws that prohibited abortion. Both the appeals court and the state supreme court declined to reverse the temporary restraining order imposed by the Jefferson Circuit Court against the two legislation. The circuit court imposed an interim injunction on July 22.
The Monday decree prohibits abortion in the majority of situations in Kentucky.
Tuesday, Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union filed an emergency petition with the Kentucky Supreme Court. CNN reports that the appeal contended that the state court of appeals’ judgment “eviscerates reproductive freedom in Kentucky.”
Rebecca Gibron, chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood in the Great Northwest, Hawaii, Alaska, Indiana, and Kentucky, blasted the court’s decision as “devastating for all Kentuckians.”
“Abortion is essential health care,” Gibron asserted, according to CNN. “It is foolish and harmful to deny individuals access to the care they require.”
Cameron, who is also running for governor as a Republican, stated on Twitter, “I appreciate the court’s decision to allow Kentucky’s pro-life laws to take effect while we continue to vigorously defend the constitutionality of these important protections for women and unborn children across the Commonwealth.”

The culture of death is desperate to keep up the slaughter of innocents, so desperate that they have thrown any semblance of logic — let alone morality — out the window. A ban on abortion would cause irreparable harm to a woman who no longer wished to be pregnant? What about the baby? Being murdered in the womb is about as irreparable as it can get. Abortion protects “essential healthcare” for whom? Certainly not the baby. CONTINUE READING…
