(TheConservativeNews.org) – Residents of Kentucky may procure abortions under the terms of Roe vs. Wade, though state law says that this would change if the landmark case were overturned in the US Supreme Court. A new lawsuit challenging the practice could result in that happening, eventually.
On Monday, March 29, the US Supreme Court announced it would hear Cameron vs. EMW Women’s Center. This case centers around a Kentucky law that bans dilation and evacuation (D&E) abortions. The current Democratic administration in Kentucky may decide not to enforce this law going forward.
The Supreme Court hearing will not involve a ruling on the constitutionality of the law in Kentucky at this point. For now, it must only decide whether the state’s attorney general should be allowed to defend the law against a permanent injunction handed down by the 6th Circuit Court under the circumstances. However, this case could have implications affecting the application of principles in the Roe vs. Wade case further down the road.
