Adam Edelen on Abortion

 

 


Abortion rights are vital to ensuring equality for women

Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear picked up a last-minute endorsement from a staunch national abortion rights group in his bid to win the Democratic nomination for governor. The National Association to Repeal Abortion Laws, also known as NARAL, said they endorsed Beshear in a tight race on the eve of Kentucky's primary election because he represents the best chance to beat Republican Gov. Matt Bevin in November.

Said Beshear, "I have consistently stood up to Matt Bevin when he has tried to undermine and attack women's rights. Others may say they are pro-choice, but I am the only candidate in this race who has done more than just talk when it comes to a woman's right to choose."

Beshear earned the endorsement over former state auditor Adam Edelen, who has said abortion rights are vital in order to ensure equality for women, and House Minority Floor Leader Rocky Adkins, who voted for several anti-abortion bills this year.

Unwavering support of women's right to health care decisions

Q: What will you do to expand or restrict access to reproductive health care?

A: A modern Kentucky must recognize women's full equality, and that equality must include the right to make their own reproductive health care decisions. Ours is the only campaign that has never wavered on a woman's right to make her own health care decisions, and neither Gill nor I have ever run on a platform based on limiting those rights.
