LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Kentucky Senator, Mitch McConnell, promised to put more attention on limiting abortions if Republicans take control of the senate in November.
He spoke to the National Right to Life Convention at the Galt House Saturday morning saying, "Kentucky is proudly pro-life."
The convention does not go uncontested though, as abotion is a highly debated topic. The Kentucky Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice issued this statement:
"As the National Right to Life Convention meets this weekend in Louisville, the members of the Kentucky Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (KRCRC) raise our voices in support of abortion rights and access. We affirm all people's moral agency when it comes to choosing whether and how to parent. Religious denominations have varying stances on abortion rights, and we believe that the lived experiences of people who are pregnant -- not religious doctrine -- should inform abortion policies.
In the face of deteriorating access to abortion -- including the Supreme Court's recent decision to strike down a Massachusetts clinic buffer-zone law -- KRCRC will continue to ensure women can access all reproductive options, including safe, legal abortion, with dignity and respect."
