Sobel v. Cameron

Docket number

Plaintiffs claim that abortion ban violates the state constitution’s 1) prohibition on unintelligible laws contained in the legislature’s duty to executive and judicial branches (§ 27–29); 2) prohibition on sectarian preferences (§ 5); and protection against the diminishment of privileges, rights, and capacities based on religious belief or disbelief (§ 5). They also claim it violates the U.S. Constitution’s protections against vague laws (Amend. I, V, XIV). Finally, they claim it violates state law, specifically the Kentucky Religious Freedom Restoration Act (KRS 446.350). A federal judge rejected the state’s request to remove the challenge to federal court.
