State of Kentucky Archives: on Abortion


Alison Grimes: Pro-choice down the line

Grimes told me that she was pro-choice down the line on abortion, and that she would delay the Affordable Care Act's requirement that small businesses provide medical coverage to their employees.

The two statements were her first substantive comments on policy matters. Until now she has spent most of her time attacking McConnell as the embodiment of all that is corrupt and unproductive about Washington.

Grimes is one of five daughters in a devout Catholic family in Lexington. "I am a practicing Catholic," she told me. "But I'm also for separation of church and state. I am supportive of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade. And I think that this is the kind of choice that has to be up to the woman, her God and her doctor."
