Kentucky Legislature Passes Bill To Ban Abortions On Babies With Down Syndrome

Micaiah Bilger

Kentucky lawmakers approved a bill Wednesday to protect unborn babies from discrimination based on their sex, race or a disability such as Down syndrome.

Kentucky House Bill 5 passed the state Senate by an overwhelming majority; the vote was 32-4, the AP reports. It passed the state House in February, and now moves to pro-life Gov. Matt Bevin’s desk.

The bill would prohibit abortionists from aborting unborn babies if the sole reason is because of the unborn baby’s gender, race or disability. Abortionists who violate the measure could have their licenses revoked and face felony charges.
