Kentucky Lawmakers Approve 15-Week Abortion Ban as Arizona Governor Signs Similar Measure

HeadlineMar 31, 2022

Kentucky’s Republican-controlled Legislature has approved a bill banning abortion after just 15 weeks of pregnancy. The Kentucky bill is similar to Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, which is under review by the Supreme Court. Democratic Governor Andy Beshear hasn’t said whether he’ll sign the legislation, though Republicans say they have enough votes to override a veto. Also on Wednesday, Arizona’s Republican Governor Doug Ducey signed a similar ban on abortions after 15 weeks.
