A pro-abortion Democrat, Beshear said in his veto statement that the legislation is not necessary because newborns already are protected under the law, Jurist reports.

“… existing Kentucky law already fully protects children from being denied life-saving medical care and treatment when they are born,” the governor said. “During this worldwide health pandemic, it is simply not the time for a divisive set of lawsuits that reduce our unity and our focus on defeating the novel coronavirus and restarting our economy.”

State Senate Bill 9 would have required “reasonable life-saving and life-sustaining” medical care to be provided to infants who are born alive after failed abortions. Medical professionals who violated the measure could have faced criminal penalties and had their licenses revoked.

The legislation also would have given pro-life Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron the power to temporarily halt elective abortions during the coronavirus health crisis.

Cameron said Beshear’s veto is what is truly “divisive” because he rejected a bill that “protects our most vulnerable,” Forward Kentucky reports.

House Speaker David Osborne also slammed the pro-abortion governor for using his veto power “to defend the indefensible.”

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood and the ACLU thanked the governor for vetoing the measure, according to the AP. More
