Abortion opponents send bill to Kentucky governor

Abortion Bills

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s anti-abortion attorney general is embracing the opportunity to regulate abortion clinics. State lawmakers gave him that new power before they ended this year’s legislative session. But Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron might not get to wield that new authority. The bill goes to Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear. If he vetoes it, lawmakers won’t have a chance to override him, as they did several times this week. They ended their session late Wednesday The legislation would allow the attorney general to take civil or criminal action against abortion facilities. Abortion-rights groups are urging the governor to veto the bill.
