(Frankfort, KY) - New restrictions on abortion are in place in Kentucky.

Lawmakers overturned Governor Andy Beshear's veto Wednesday on the controversial abortion legislation, which bans abortions after 15 weeks and restricts access to medicinal abortions.

Pro-choice protesters gathered at the capitol throughout the day, with chants growing when the veto was up for debate.

Governor Beshear had expressed concerns about victims of rape or incest and argued the bill might be unconstitutional.
