KENTUCKY (LifeSiteNews) – A Kentucky state court of appeals reinstated a statewide abortion ban Monday following an emergency request by pro-life Attorney General Daniel Cameron.

On August 1, Judge Larry E. Thompson allowed a heartbeat-based abortion ban and an abortion “trigger law” to be enforced while litigation continues after Jefferson County Circuit Judge Mitch Perry initially blocked them from taking effect, as reported by CNN.

“I appreciate the court’s decision to allow Kentucky’s pro-life laws to take effect while we continue to vigorously defend the constitutionality of these important protections for women and unborn children across the Commonwealth,” Cameron tweeted.

Kentucky’s trigger law took effect following the reversal of Roe v. Wade in June, but was almost immediately challenged by the American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky and Planned Parenthood.

Jefferson County Circuit Judge Mitch Perry halted enforcement of the law on an already-blocked six-week ban. On July 22, Perry granted a longer injunction sought by abortion facilities.

The newly reinstated trigger law defines an unborn child as a “human being” from fertilization and prohibits any procedure “with the specific intent of causing or abetting” the death of an unborn baby at any stage of embryonic or fetal development.

“No person shall knowingly administer to, prescribe for, procure for, or sell to any pregnant woman any medicine, drug, or other substance with the specific intent of causing or abetting the termination of the life of an unborn human being,” the law states.

Abortions are Class D felony charges punishable by up to five years in prison for anyone other than the mother. The law exempts cases where the mother’s life is in danger or if there is a risk of permanent injury to a “life-sustaining organ.”

Many U.S. states have outlawed abortion in the wake of the Supreme Court overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, largely owing to “trigger laws” set up in anticipation of the historic decision.

Just a few days before the Kentucky ruling, the Louisiana 1st Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the state may again enforce its abortion ban while Attorney General Landry appeals Judge Johnson’s decision. The law went back into effect that day, shutting down the state’s three abortion clinics.

More than ten states have effectively banned abortion while many others have drastically limited access as more states follow suit. As LifeSiteNews reported, abortion facilities have ceased abortions in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
