Kentucky lawmakers may seek a legislative solution to the dispute over whether grocery and convenience stores should be allowed to sell liquor and wine.

The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned a lower court’s ruling that allowed wine and liquor to be sold in grocery stores and gas stations across the commonwealth.

 Women who produce children as a result of rape would not be obligated to share parental rights with their rapist under legislation filed Tuesday in the Kentucky House.

Kentucky, along with 34 other states, allows rapists to take their victims to court and seek these rights. 

Rep. Dennis Keene, who is sponsoring the bill, called the allowance a "loophole in Kentucky law." 

"I've got two daughters," said Keene, a Democrat from Wilder. "I wouldn't want any human being to go through that."
