Gov. Matt Bevin should stop wasting my tax dollars on his personal crusade to stifle the reproductive rights that the U.S. Supreme Court gave to all women in 1973 and has upheld on numerous occasions since.
Bevin’s disgustingly transparent attempt to disable clinics that provide essential services to Kentucky women shows me clearly that he is not as focused on Kentucky’s budget woes as he claims, and that he is more concerned with imposing his personal, provincial, religious beliefs on the women of this state than with respecting and following the law.
It is curious that Bevin has elected to make waging war on women’s health services a priority and spend what will doubtless be seven figures on the cause, even as he asks all state agencies to slash their budgets by 9 percent. Does he not hold himself to the same budgetary standards?
He managed to bamboozle the rural poor into voting for him by pandering to their religious fervor. Now he is using that as justification to limit the rights of Kentucky women and attempt to circumvent U.S. law.
