Daniel Cameron Doubles Down on Private Pledge to Restrict Access to Birth Control

After it was revealed that Daniel Cameron privately pledged to “actively support” the elimination of health care coverage for over 600,000 Kentuckians by overturning Medicaid expansion and severely restricting access to birth control – he’s doubling down by calling his extreme and unpopular position “mainstream,” according to Rolling Stone.

Rolling Stone noted that Cameron pledged to “work to further restrict birth control in Kentucky if elected,” including gutting access for the standard birth control pill for hundreds of thousands of Kentucky women who get coverage from Medicaid or Kynect, among other plans for teachers, social workers, and state employees.

Cameron has been under fire for supporting the state’s current extreme ban abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest, including for children as young as 9-years-old. Cameron even defended the state’s near-total abortion ban in court.

“Daniel Cameron’s extreme position on severely restricting access to birth control is anything but ‘mainstream,’” said DGA States Press Secretary Emma O’Brien. “If Cameron has it his way, hundreds of thousands of Kentucky women will lose access to birth control. He’s too extreme to be Kentucky’s governor.”
