FRANKFORT, KY (WXIX) -Several rallies Kentucky will be held outside of the statehouses following the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe v. Wade Friday.

Friday’s ruling on the 1973 case now leaves it in the hands of state governments to determine their own abortion laws.

Abortion is legal in Ohio until the 22nd week of pregnancy, but that is not the case in Kentucky.

Kentucky is one of 13 states to pass House Bill 148 or known as the “trigger law.” The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade overturn Friday, enacts the law to be effective immediately.

The ACLU of Kentucky announced right after the Supreme Court ruling on Friday that they plan on suing the state, arguing that “the Kentucky Constitution allows for the legal right to access abortion.”
