Kentucky AG appeals judge’s order that blocks abortion ban

Breonna Taylor Daniel Cameron

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is asking a state appeals court to overturn an injunction issued last week that blocks the state’s abortion ban. The injunction ruling by a judge in Louisville prevents the state’s near-total ban on abortion from taking effect. The state’s two abortion clinics in Louisville have continued providing abortion since the judge issued a temporary restraining order in June. Cameron is asking the Kentucky Supreme Court to take up the issue, which would bypass the state Court of Appeals. He says the Louisville judge “created the Kentucky version of Roe v. Wade.”
