Secretary of State Michael Adams
FRANKFORT, KY (June 24, 2022) – Secretary of State Michael Adams issued the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision this morning to overturn Roe v. Wade:
“Today, the Supreme Court returned the right of self-government to the States and to the People, as contemplated by the Constitution. In Kentucky this fall, our people will have the opportunity to express their view on this issue, via Constitutional Amendment Two.
The Court’s decision follows a half-century of hard and diligent work by people of faith, elected officials, attorneys, and activists. As abortion will remain legal in many states, including at least one of our neighboring states, that hard and diligent work must continue, in a different form: ensuring adequate support – financial and emotional – of those facing this difficult choice.”
