Threatens Numerous Pro-Life Laws
SB 99 attacks the foundation of all pro-life laws by promoting discrimination and treating some preborn children as unworthy of protection. KY’s pro-life laws would be extensively weakened; including protections for preborn children who have a heartbeat, are capable of feeling pain, are late-term, and are viable. Lifesaving informed consent, ultrasound, parental consent, and spousal notification laws would also be weakened.
Makes It Difficult to Enforce Pro-Life Laws
SB 99 creates a rebuttable presumption that physicians performing abortions are doing so under a lawful exception, no matter how unlikely that is.
Sows Confusion & Doubt Through Deceptive Definitions
SB 99 deceitfully presents the removal of a “dead unborn fetus,” ectopic preg- nancy, or “incomplete miscarriage” as an abortion. But that is blatantly false.

- Re-legalizes Abortion
- Legalizes & Promotes Discrimination
- Undermines the Premise of All Pro-Life Laws
