Kentucky Abortions

By Associated Press | 

Abortions in Kentucky would be illegal under a proposal filed this week by a House Republican lawmaker.

State Representative Addia Wuchner of Burlington says she wants lawmakers to ban abortions in Kentucky even though a law would likely face a court contest.

Abortion was legalized in 1973 by the US Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade.

Still, Wuchner says she'll push her proposal, which had more than 30 co-sponsors.
