Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is planning to take the fight for Kentucky’s pro-life laws to the U.S. Supreme Court on October 12th.
Attorney General Cameron’s decision to defend Kentucky’s laws that recognize the human classification of the unborn is an important one. Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear (D) had no intentions of upholding the law in federal court.
Beshear’s unwillingness to defend Kentucky’s pro-life laws combined with his position as Governor has spawned an entirely new legal battle.
Now Attorney General Cameron will be arguing for the right of a state Attorney General to argue on behalf of the state’s laws in court without support from the Governor.
Kentucky Senate President Robert Stivers (R) responded to Cameron’s announcement saying, “The Constitution grants the legislature the authority to prescribe by law what the policies of this state are, and we have determined that the Attorney General should serve in that role. The issue in HB 454, the rights of the unborn, is important to us as legislators, and I thank General Cameron for representing the General Assembly in the United States Supreme Court.”
What began as a likely victory for the pro-life movement could become a massive win for Republicans nationwide. Certainly, a conservative Supreme Court only increases the odds of success for Attorney General Cameron and his supporters.
