A U.S. appeals court has temporarily restored the laws prohibiting abortion in the state of Kentucky and give reason to the prosecutor Daniel Cameron, who has applauded the measure and has insisted that he will continue to work to “defend the constitutionality of these guarantees for women and unborn children.”
The move comes after a U.S. judge last June blocked the laws governing the practice in the region, which prohibit almost all of it unless the mother’s life is in grave danger.
The implementation of these laws came after the country’s Supreme Court overturned the constitutional right to abortion after overturning Roe v. Wade, which established case law and recognized women’s right to unrestricted abortion during the first trimester of pregnancy, a legal precedent that has been in use since 1973.
“I appreciate the court’s decision, which allows Kentucky’s pro-life laws to go into effect,” Cameron, a Republican, said on his Twitter account. The order has gone ahead in response to a lawsuit that sought to overturn precisely these laws, according to information from CNN television network.
Previously, the court, as well as the Supreme Court, have thus refused to reverse these laws, one of which sets a deadline of six weeks of pregnancy to be able to perform abortions.
