Kentucky legislator equates abortion to domestic violence
It has been 41 years since the landmark Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, legalized abortion. But last year, five states including Mississippi, Alabama, South Dakota, Kansas and Indiana had anti-abortion bills go into effect ... in the same week.
The deluge of bills and amendments aimed at chipping away Roe v. Wade hasn't stopped in the new year. Last week Kentucky State Representative Joe Fischer (R) introduced an anti-choice amendment to a domestic violence bill saying, "the most brutal form of domestic violence is the violence against unborn children." The bill's actual intent is to expand domestic violence protections to non-married couples, but if passed with Fischer's amendment it would also ban abortions at 20 weeks of pregnancy.
