Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is one of two dozen attorneys general who have filed an amicus brief before the Supreme Court in a case involving a Mississippi abortion restriction that could ultimately result in Roe v. Wade being overturned.
Cameron, a rising star in the Republican party, is joining his counterparts in calling in the high court to take the opportunity to overturn the controversial 1973 ruling which effectively legalized abortion and has lead to the death of millions of unborn babies.
The Mississippi law placed a ban on abortion before 15 weeks gestation but was challenged by pro-abortion groups who argued that it violated Roe v. Wade.
The attorneys general, however, say Roe was an errant ruling to begin with. Cameron was joined by AGs from Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
“The Constitution does not include a right to abortion, and there is no history or tradition of protecting such a right,” the amicus brief states. “Because the purported right to abortion lacks any textual or historical foundation, it is defined only by the court’s constantly changing opinions.”
“Time has not lessened the belief that unborn life deserves protection …” the attorneys general also wrote. “People of good conscience will always disagree on this issue, and the Court’s attempt to settle it has failed. Moreover, the Court’s continuing vacillation over the constitutional test and the creation of new, abortion-specific rules have only made matters worse.”
“The commonwealth has a paramount interest in protecting unborn life, and Kentucky regularly acts on that interest by passing laws that protect the unborn and maternal health, reaffirm the dignity of human life and protect the integrity of the medical profession,” Cameron said.
“Much like Mississippi’s 15-week law,” the pro-life official continued, according to the Sentinel-Echo, “Kentucky’s laws are often tied up for years in court challenges by abortion providers. The notion of a constitutional right to an abortion is a creation of the courts and has no basis in our Constitution. This case gives the high court the chance to correct this profound error by reconsidering Roe v. Wade and returning the issue to the states as required by the Constitution.”
Just this week, Cameron and his wife announced they are expecting their first baby, so no doubt his commitment to protecting unborn life will only become more profound as he enters fatherhood.

We’ve never been closer to seeing this horrific and immoral ruling overturned, and it is heartening to see how many of the states’ top legal officials openly calling for such a thing to happen.
Following the three nominees put forward by former President Donald Trump, the court leans conservative for the first time in quite a while. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the justices will rule according to their personal pro-life stance; during their confirmation hearings, they made a point to affirm they would decide cases based on what is constitutional rather than their own personal views.
However, Roe v. Wade was not only wrong, but it was also unconstitutional, as the AGs state in their amicus brief. There is no “personal” opinion when it comes to abortion — it is wrong, period, no matter how you look at it.
Now is the time to drop to our knees and fervently pray for life and our constitutional values to be upheld by the high court. Pray for the justices to do both what is constitutional and what is moral in the eyes of our Lord.
