(via press release from the KY LWV)
The League of Women Voters of Kentucky Board of Directors adopted the following statement on July 16, in response to the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, overturning Roe v. Wade and shifting the issue of abortion to the states.
In addition, the board adopted the following position opposing proposed Amendment 2 to the Kentucky Constitution on the November ballot and will advocate for citizens to vote ‘NO’ on the amendment.
League 1st Vice President Dee Pregliasco said, “This statement and decision follow the National League of Women Voters’ long-held position ‘... affirming the constitutional right to privacy of the individual to make reproductive choices ...’ and its recent statement on the Dobbs ruling.” The National League statement can be found here.
