Deception & out-of-state dollars sow confusion on amendment 2
Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, and other radical pro-abortion advocates flooded Kentucky with deceptive ads and millions of dollars in blood money — all to defeat Amendment 2’s protection for the Commonwealth’s bipartisan pro-life laws (which these radicals are currently challenging in court).
The narrowness of Amendment 2’s defeat is a testament to how pro-life Kentucky truly is, given that millions were spent to bombard Kentuckians with deceptive ads designed to sow widespread confusion and mislead voters.
Kentucky gives lawmakers clear pro-life mandate
Despite the narrow defeat of Kentucky’s pro-life constitutional amendment (Amendment 2), there can be no doubt that Kentuckians have sent their elected representatives to Frankfort with a clear pro-life mandate.
On June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, its unlawful 1973 decision “legalizing” abortion, declaring it “time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
On Nov. 8, Kentuckians cast their votes and made clear that they desire their elected representatives to continue the Commonwealth’s declared policy of “recogniz[ing] and [ ] protect[ing] the lives of all human beings regardless of their degree of biological development.”
- Kentuckians re-elected all 28 legislators in contested races who were supportive of Amendment 2 and other pro-life laws
- Kentuckians rejected nearly half of legislators in contested races who opposed Amendment 2 and other pro-life laws
Conservative supermajorities increase
After November 8’s election, Kentucky voters have increased the strong supermajority hold that Republicans have held over both legislative chambers of the Kentucky General Assembly during the past two years.
With the flip of five seats in the House, Republicans increased from 75 to 80 of the 100 seats.
With the flip of one seat in the Senate, Republican domination increases from 30 to 31 of the 38 seats.
