Louisville Courier Journal: “Cameron Wants Kentuckians’ Out-Of-State Abortion Records to be Available to Authorities”

Louisville Courier Journal: “Cameron Wants Kentuckians’ Out-Of-State Abortion Records to be Available to Authorities”

In his latest attack against Kentuckians’ right to privacy, Daniel Cameron signed on to a letter “opposing a proposed federal privacy rule that would block state officials from obtaining information on residents’ reproductive health care services obtained outside the state.”

This is the latest example of Daniel Cameron’s extreme record surrounding reproductive rights – Cameron supports the current law in Kentucky that bans abortion without exceptions for rape and incest, or birth defects.

Earlier this month, a Kentucky couple detailed their tragic story of being forced to travel outside the state thanks to the state’s near-total abortion ban after they learned their child would die very quickly after birth or be stillborn from a severe birth defect. The Louisville Courier Journal has also reported “the two youngest patients to receive an abortion over the past two years were age 9” before Kentucky’s ban.

“Not only does Daniel Cameron think the government should force a 9-year-old rape victim to give birth, he wants to know if victims leave Kentucky for reproductive health care. This invasion into Kentuckians’ privacy is both dangerous and too extreme for Kentucky, and so is Daniel Cameron,” said DGA States Press Secretary Emma O’Brien.
