It didn’t take long for Republicans in Kentucky to make a move to restrict abortion rights. The Courier-Journal has the details.

Perhaps the most interesting excerpt from the story is a quote from one state politician:

A new Senate bill would ban abortions for women after the 20th week of pregnancy, according to Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchester.

Stivers told reporters that a mother has a “choice early on to make a decision to conceive or not conceive. But once conception starts, there becomes another life involved. And the legislature has its ability to control how that life may proceed or how it would be terminated.”

To conceive or not to conceive.

Is that the question?
